Biker's Revenge!
10 November 2001 | by guil12See all my reviews

This bad movie at least has a gorgeous leading lady, Kathy Long, as the stranger. Long looks magnificent in her tight black leather jeans and flowing golden locks. She also strides a motorcycle pretty well. But she is given trite dialogue to deal with. Seeking a chief biker by the name of Angel for his wrong doings[namely rape] the ultimate happens in a deserted ghost town in a sort of B movie HIGH NOONish atmosphere. Where did they find such a place? I'm curious. It truly looked deserted. Add to this melodrama, a bunch of villains, in biker gear, looking more or less like Mr. Clean, and the townsfolk looking more like Mr. Peepers [old Wally Cox TV series of a mousy professor]and you can guess the rest. Our heroine wins the battle, hands down. Along the way she hops into bed with Sheriff Cole [a nice guy played simply by Eric Pierpoint in a helpless sort of way - but, hey, he tries] even getting knocked out with one punch by our gal Kathy to keep him from harm as the gang of villains approach the town [ala Frank Miller]. Andrew Divoff provided Angel with the proper tattoos and evil grimaces. It was Robin Lynn Heath as Cordet that missed the boat. This barefooted barbie doll babe runs around in almost a dress, looking like she needs a bath. She becomes increasingly annoying as the picture progresses. Can't understand the point of this role. And I don't think the actress did either. One expression "like duh" and blank stares. That was the limit of her performance. I do believe she finally took a bath. In the end the stranger leaves town waving goodbye to our sheriff and the barefooted ragmuffin and who cares. But still a pleasure to watch Kathy Long. Hope she gets more offers to show her stuff. A perfect replacement for Sheena, if anyone's listening. Directed by Fritz Kiersch with a deft touch. You could see some artistic attempts of his work if only he had a better scenario than writer Gregory Poirier offered him. I give it 3 out of ten rating. And the 3 goes to Miss Long for being born so gorgeous.
