A New Biker Flick From Quentin Tarantino
HELL RIDE is a raucous throwback to the days of the Sergio Leone spaghetti western, with a heaping helping of testosterone-fueled chopper action thrown into the mix.
If you liked Grindhouse and old school style biker gang flicks, then you’re in for a treat. Hell Ride is a biker flick produced by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Larry Bishop that pays homage to the old school biker movies of the 60s and 70s. It’s one 83-minute non-stop biker party that exploits the three Bs: bikes, beer, and booty. If you’ve been anxious for another edge-of-your-seat Grindhouse fix until Tarantino and Rodriguez team up again for the sequel (if it ever happens), then this is it!
In Hell Ride, two rival biker gangs, the Victors and the Six-Six-Sixers, have been at war for years. On July 4th, 1976 the Six-Six-Sixers kill and burn the Victors’ president’s wife, now 32 years later they’re getting revenge. The Victors are headed up by the gang’s president, Pistolero (Larry Bishop, who played the “asshole on the elbow” guy in Kill Boll Vol. 2), The Gent (Michael Madsen, who played Budd in Kill Bill Vol. 2), and recently added member Comanche (Eric Balfour). The Six-Six-Sixers is lead by Billy Wings (Vinnie Jones), a ruthless biker who uses an air powered crossbow that’s as badass as Anton Chigurh’s cattle stun gun in No Country for Old Men. David Carradine and Dennis Hopper also deliver some memorable moments.
Hell Ride was shown last month during the Sundance Film Festival and is due for release in the spring of ’08. It’s full of intensity, hot women, gun fights, and bad ass characters that you probably wouldn’t bring home to meet the folks.
Watch for it at a theater near you!
