While wandering through the aisles at the local Blockbuster last weekend looking for a film that doesn’t suck, I happened upon the 2008 film Hell Ride
. I rarely seize the opportunity to watch movies in the theatre these days and since I had heard dismal reviews, I guess it just slipped my mind and I never bothered seeing it. Since my options this particular evening appeared to range from Beverly Hills Chihuahua
and Hotel for Dogs
to Hannah Montana or High School Musical 3
, I figured it might just be the best option.
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.
