"Armed with an indestrucible double mullet (that's where you have a blonde mullet growing out of a brown one) Joe Tough, excuse me I mean, Joe Huff removes his shirt and infiltrates The Brotherhood a murderous group of gun-runnin', drug dealin' Nazi bikers that are out to rid the world of bathing.
I think the makers of this film were trying to make a serious movie and that's what makes the movie even better! Cause while there is non-stop action galore it's so unintentionally funny in it's seriousness that you'll have to watch it at least 3 times to absorb it all. A true American classic that needs to be on a deluxe edition DVD.
For other films with memorable hair see Chuck Norris' power beard in INVASION U.S.A. and Vanilla Ice's fossilized pompadour in COOL AS ICE.
A few good lines:
"God forgives. The Brotherhood doesn't."
"This reminds me of my father's last words: 'Don't son, that gun is loaded!'"
"Imagine the future, Chains, cause you're not in it."
D: Craig R. Baxley (ACTION JACKSON, "STORM OF THE CENTURY")
Joe Huff/John Stone - Brian Bosworth (ONE TOUGH BASTARD, BLACK OUT)
Chains Cooper - Lance Henrikson (ALIENS, THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM)
Ice - William Forsythe (FIRESTORM, DEUCE BIGALO: MALE GIGOLO)"
Deceiving product info for a great action flick.

"OK, this is a review of the DVD. I've already reviewed this fantastic biker flick elsewhere on this site and you fans deserve to know what you are paying for so read this before you rush out and buy this crappy DVD release.
First of all, the DVD clearly states that is presents a Widescreeen and Fullscreen version. But then if you look further into the specs listed, it also says the DVD is being presented in 1:33:1 which is a sneaky way of saying 4:3 or as we most understand that to be.....FULLSCREEN!
This DVD is a flipper, and on the unmarked side you get what appears to be a fullscreen presentation. Now, flip it over to the side that is actually marked "Widescreen" and you will get NOT a widescreen version, but a fullscreen version that has been cropped at the top and the bottom so as to give the false appearance of being widescreen. But as you watch, you will notice that key images in certain scenes are only 1/2 visible. It became obvious when I got the tape measure out to confirm what I already suspected....cropped top and bottom. Shame shame shame.
The sound gets no props either. Again the specs tell you that this is a Dolby Surround audio, but it doesn't sound like it. All the sound is to the front, and mostly directed to the center channel. My impression is that this is basically a "stereo" mixing that does nothing to enhance the action. The sound you hear in the surround speakers is just residual noise, not much else. You'll have to listen to this one at full volume for effect.
On the plus side, the DVD transfer is very crisp and clean. The images are sharp, and the colors are very deep. I'm shocked actually at the clarity of detail for such a lousy DVD treatment, but the video looks great. Nothing else in the package, no extras, no liner notes, no bios, nada. So there you go, buy this DVD because you love the movie, but don't buy it expecting to be blown away by it cause you likely wont be unless you're seeing it for the first time. 5 stars for the movie minus one pitiful star for this DVD."

"1 of my all time favs. I Watch it all the time. Probably as much as Christmas Vacation. WHY IS THIS NOT ON DVD????????? They are releasing Bull$*it movies on dvd nowadays and rare gems like this see no love. My vhs version of this is in shambles from me and my drunkard friends watching this all the time! Bosworth actually pulls some acting from out of his ass on this one. He's actually believable. From start to finish, this movie keeps you glued. Don't let the Boz fool ya, (yeah his other movies suck) this is awesome stuff. I mean you can't go wrong with Lance Henriksen. He kicks ass!! The DVD better be here soon or someone is gonna pay!!!! I would actually pay $30.00 or so for this flick to fill in the Stone Cold gap in my DVD collection. Please somebody release this to DVD!!!!!!!!!!Now!!!"
Where is the DVD???????
