HELL RIDE is basically bikes, beer, booty (plenty of beautiful babes with bare breasts), and bullets. The film is an entertaining
and funny film from writer/ director/ star Larry Bishop. Quentin Tarantino helped get HELL RIDE the green light (for production).
The film is in the grindhouse and biker Explotation tradition. The actors improvise and look like they are having lots of
fun while making it. Michael Madsen acts from a tree in one scene and Larry Bishop (as Victors biker gang leader Pistolero)
gets plenty of booty call from more than three women (while still mourning the great woman in his life- the murdered Cherokee
Kisum). Pistolero is after revenge against the Duece and Billy Wings (leader of rival biker gange the Six Six Sixers) for
the murder of Cherokee Kisum. HELL RIDE is for the type of people who like motorcycles, hot chicks showing off their assests
9in more ways than one- witness the conversations between Pistolero and Nada (Lenor Valera), and plenty of action. Michael
Madsen is a hoot as The gent while Dennis Hopper (as Eddie Zero) and David Carradine (as the Duece) chew the scenery. Eric
Balfour scowls and horses around as Cherokee. Cherokee and The Gent are part of the Victors. HELL RIDE isn't for everyone.
If you want more out of it than what I described about it, you're really out of luck.
