User Review

A tribute to a dying sort of men

Rating: 10/10

It's the kind of movie they don't make any more. Packed with testosterone and huge loads of male pride, Harley and Marlboro set out to kick some ass. I really love this movie because it shows like friendship between men works or at least how it is supposed to work. Even though the two main characters haven't met for years, they know where the other one is and when they come together again it's like they never were apart. They also help each other regardless if it will cost their live because in their mind "It's better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool." (Harley Davidson) Of course this attitude brings them nothing but trouble but those two take it the macho-way and stand to whatever comes up. And for those who only think it's a modern macho western: "Back off!!" Take a closer look and you will see that there is a lot of soul and spirit hidden between the macho talking and behaviour.
