Movie Reviews

I'll Take This "B" Movie Over A Coma Anyday
Angela J. Thorpe | Alamogordo, NM, USA | 09/18/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I've seen hundreds of Sci Fi/Horror movies over the years. This is one of those you'll wonder whether you've watched it or not a few years down the road. You just can't remember.

All in all, I figure it's still better to watch a so-so Sci Fi/Horror movie than "Dances With Wolves" or "Evita". This movie will end up being non-memorable, but it's preferable to being in a coma.

"This has to be the greatest movies ever produced. It has everything you want, CIA agents, Killers, Aliens, Murdercycles, Psychics, and Little Alien Balls that explode. If you thought ALIENS was good, then this is the movie for you! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time the movie was playing on TBS. This is sooo worth the [amt]. I mean, the alien can set the amount for firepower his gun shoots! One time he blows up a truck, and the other time he only wants to stun the guy. Oh by the way, i jumped out of my seat when the Murdercycle jumped out at the group from inside a building. He is a cold blooded killer. But that is just some of the action of this action packed riveter. HOpe to see you all at the Murdercycle MOVIES. nick yee for life!"
Worth seeing just for the title

"You can't expect much from a movie called "Murdercycle", but as C Grade Sci-Fi films go, it isn't all bad.

Sure, there's a lot of unintentional comedy (like lasers that don't seem capable of giving a human a minor, irritating skin rash and a psychic who can be repelled just by thinking bad thoughts at her), and the acting ranges from adequete to subpar. But the film has a decent pace, and it kept me interested enough to watch to the end. Plus, it's got an alien cyborg motorcycle!

One question though: Why do all aliens / monsters have such grainy, blurry vision? No wonder the Murdercycle kept missing with his stinging lasers of owie."
A Killer Alien Motorcycle Infiltrates A Top Secret Undergrou

(2 out of 5 stars)

""Murdercycle" is an epically stupid and cheap motion picture. The premise is that a meteor falls from outer space near a guy on a dirt bike and he transmogrifies into the murdercycle, making the US defenseless against attack, at least in this one flea-bitten western town.

By way of backstory, Sergeant Kirby is facing severe disciplinary action by the Marine Corps. Despite the obvious negative security ramifications, they pick him to lead a top secret mission to find the murdercycle. There is the obligatory psychic woman love interest angle which, in turn, yields the stupidest psychobabble ever uttered outside of Washington, DC.

All of this is covering up a truly pathetic CIA plot of some vague type, which for budgetary reasons (presumably) occurs in the ghost town of Prairie Dog, Colorado. There are numerous silly plotpoints to be seen: the murdercycle's blood smells like motor oil; an injured Marine is shot because he is in pain; there's a freedom fighter nerd in a barn; and the film ultimately reveals that the "whole area is a hotbed of alien activity." Presumably murdercycles are commonplace there; certainly the government's facilities are first-rate! The film all leads up to a very dramatic ending, which I won't spoil for you. I will, however, tell you that it's as least as stupid, contrived, and predictable as anything I have ever seen in any other film of any genre (and I have seen a lot of grade Z films.)

"Murdercycle" is not a good movie; having said that, it is a good movie to mock, so if you want to have some friends over for a little cinematic cheese, this could be a good choice. If you want to be entertained by a movie that is well crafted or scary (or both,) this is not the film for you."
