Smoke, like most of his fellow Knights, is a successful white collar worker who can afford fancy leathers and top quality bikes, and Smoke has earned a reputation as the "King of Cali," willing take on anyone in a drag race, legal or no.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Guy flicks can be just as galling as the chick variety."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"When the filmmakers aren't busy accommodating cameo models and comedians, they seem to be dozing off at the handlebars."
‑ Nat Johnson, Village Voice
"Think MTV does biker movie with great cast."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"... Director Reggie Rock Bythewood assures us of two things beyond all doubt: motorcycles are really loud and really fast."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Essentially, Biker Boyz is a soap opera wrapped up in the trashy-but-flashy packaging of The Fast and the Furious."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
"After Dancing in September, his droll examination of race and representation in Hollywood, Bythewood now hawks contrived escapism in lieu of provoking thought."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"Biker Boyz is just a silly film."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"At times entertaining, but never boring. It sure could have been a lot worse."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"A surprisingly ambivalent entry in genre that's usually brain-dead."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"Biker Boyz spins its wheels, makes with the smoke and the noise, but never really gets very far - and for a movie about motorcycle racing, that's like coming in last place."
‑ Todd Gilchrist,
"Not without moments of excitement, romance and rubber-burning redemption."
‑ David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter
"The training-wheels version of The Fast And The Furious."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Watchable cheese."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Unless you're willing to wade through a ton of offal to see some cool bikes, you're better off at the Honda showroom."
‑ Kurt Dahlke, Apollo Guide
"Despite the impressive cast and surplus of extraordinary vehicles, the film loses air after the first half, and rookie director Reggie Rock Bythewood can't seem to escape from a music-video mentality."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
