The film was refused a UK cinema certificate in 1967 and only passed in 1977 after BBFC cuts to heavily edit the fight scenes. The 1988 video version featured a new opening montage of rape and violence scenes which were not in the original cinema print, and these scenes (totalling 11 minutes) were completely removed by the BBFC as well as shots of kidney punches during the hotel fight. The 2006 Cinema Club DVD restores the punches and was pre-edited by the distributors to remove the alternative opening scene. See more »
Not to say I didn't enjoy this movie, I love the Hells Angels and all the books and movies about them. This was a good story, but it could have been told in 10 minutes. The other hour and 50 minutes, is silly, and boring. But it does have redeeming qualities, which makes it worth watching on late nite TV. Jack Nicholson is good in a very early role,(see what he was like before he started to take himself too seriously!) the girls were hot, hot, hot, and there is a great scene at the start, that shows Sonny Barger in his early days. But scenes of guys driving around in circles on their bikes, to the weirdest music I ever heard, shows that the director was a film school dropout!
