Consensus: Hell Ride misses out on the rusting zeitgeist of the biker genre, sucking the glee from a saucy premise.

Linda Stasi
New York Post

The dialog is clever, nutty and syncopated, with a soundtrack -- of the "C.C. Rider" vein -- which ain't half-bad, either.

The main problem is Bishop's adamancy on playing the lead tough guy when he's got the face of a shoe salesman.

Bikers, babes, blood, booze ... and blah.

It's a claustrophobic dud, full of ludicrously purple tough-guy dialogue and lip-smacking vamps in bikinis (how hot!), with so much monotonous hip violence there's scarcely room for anything else.

[Director Larry Bishop] burdens his film with clumsy art-house ambitions that clash with its embrace of bikes, beer and booty. If any of this sounds amusing, be warned: it's not.

Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton
Dread Central

Hell Ride is a smoldering yet completely dull wreck of a movie.

Maybe only once every six months am I in the mood for jokey sadism, but this struck me as the right picture for the right time.

Ruthe Stein
San Francisco Chronicle

The script, written by Bishop, barely makes sense. It lacks anything resembling wit, unless you think it amusing that these aging cyclists brag about needing their three B's -- bikes, beer and booty.

Stan Hall

Instead of a sublimely ridiculous and sleazy bike-movie homage, Bishop delivers self-amused, emptily crude faux-grindhouse that only fanatics of the genre will excuse.

A bit of a shambles in every respect. It was hard to figure out what the hell was going on, with the incoherent story, choppy narrative and poor acting. The… More
