Quentin Tarantino Presents: Hell Ride
Return of the B-Reel Biker Flick
Created as an homage to the trashy and violent B-movies of the 1970’s, Hell Ride follows the exploits of a biker gang known as the Victors as their leader seeks revenge for the murder of his old lady 32 years prior by a rival gang known as the 666ers. Drama unfolds as rocks are unturned and the plot thickens, with the gradual emergence of a star-studded cast including the likes of Vinnie Jones, Larry Bishop, Michael Madsen, David Carradine, Eric Balfour and Dennis Hopper.

Often violent, occasionally sexy and nearly always profane, Hell Ride does justice to the genre down to the smallest of details including wardrobe, location and cinematography. Little character development is portrayed as men speak with their guns and the real focus of such films is in the action. A relatively simple plot with flashbacks a plenty merely provides the backdrop for the necessities that all biker films need follow – bikes, beer and booty. Written and directed by Larry Bishop and produced by Quentin Tarantino, this film is worthy of your viewing if only to enjoy the badass custom bikes and the sharp dialogue that is rich with innuendo and cliché. Those who are fans of biker culture and film history will take away more from this flick as it tips its hat to those that blazed the trail of this genre.
