Peter Fonda plays 'Heavenly Blues', the leader of the Angels, a motorcycle gang from San Pedro, California; Bruce Dern plays 'Loser', his best pal. When they both botch their attempt to retrieve Loser's stolen bike, Loser ends up in the hospital. When the Angels bust him out, he dies, and they bury him. Nancy Sinatra plays Mike, Blues' "old lady" and Diane Ladd plays Loser's wife (Dern's real-life wife at the time). The plot is basically a buildup to the last half-hour of the film in which Loser's funeral becomes another wild party.Written by

If there is any biker film that is a complete waste of time, this is the one. This film had a promising beginning but that was it. I am a big fan of Peter Fonda and Bruce Dern, but I was very disappointed with this. I can't believe that this is the film that introduced the biker film chain of the 60's and 70's. Much better biker films have been made later like "Hell's Angels On Wheels", "The Rebel Rousers", and my all time favorite movie "Easy Rider". I rented this thinking that this was going to be great and I was surprised that I was able to sit through the whole thing. Nancy "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" Sinatra added nothing good to this movie. The rumble scene between the bikers and the villagers was just pathetic. I didn't want Peter Fonda and Bruce Dern to be remembered for this film but I'm afraid they are, especially Dern, whose role as "Loser" reminded me of "Weekend At Bernie's". I don't recommend this turkey to anyone, not even a hardcore member of a biker gang.
