Synopsis
A bunch of hairy guys on Harleys are causing trouble again in this, one of the best-remembered examples of the biker flicks of the 1960's. Poet (Jack Nicholson) is a moody gas station attendant who is looking for more excitement in his life. When a gang of bikers roars through town, Poet is intrigued, and after he pitches in to help the Hell's Angels in a bar fight (and pulls a well-timed stick up), one of the gang's higher-ups, Buddy (Adam Roarke) asks Poet to join. Soon Poet is riding with the Angels and living their lifestyle of violent debauchery, but Poet begins to tire of their rootless decadence, and Buddy is none too happy with Poet when he learns they're both in love with the same woman. Hell's Angels On Wheels won a cult following for its agressive but languid atmosphere and the fluid camerawork of cinematographer Laszlo Kovacs (at this point still billed as "Leslie Kovacs"). Richard Rush directed, and legendary Hell's Angels leader Sonny Barger appears as himself. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

wow- talk about commercial exploitative garbage-not even Jack could save this sinking ship-raises some interseting socialogical questions though as to how these rebels sporting iron crosses and swastikas just twenty years after WWII are turned into heros of the silver screen-remember what was happening in 1967-obvious use of media to sway the youth (paticularly young white civil rights sympathizers and feminists)at an almost unconcious level

Motorcycles in the movies! Some of these films are all about bikes, some only have a scene or two, but are still cool.
