The Best Biker in Town
23 June 2015 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

A motorcycle enthusiast named "Randy" (Steven Terrell) is riding his motorbike with some friends one day and just happens to see two young women also riding on their motorcycles. He catches up to one named "Terry" (Anne Neland) and after eluding the police for speeding, asks her out on a date. Although she accepts another event happens just prior to that in which an old colleague named "Nick Rogers" (John Ashley) arrives and engages in a fist fight with Randy because he blames Randy for his recent incarceration in prison. At any rate, Nick is determined to undermine Randy's leading role in a motorcycle club and in order to do that continually challenges him to an illegal race to prove that he is the best biker in town. If that wasn't bad enough, Terry pours gasoline on the flames by dating both men and constantly prodding Randy to go through with the race even though it carries a stiff penalty for him if he is caught. Now rather than reveal any more of this film and risk spoiling it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this was one of the earliest biker movies every produced and so it carries a certain amount of novelty with it. Unfortunately, it has some weaknesses which are very hard to overlook with the biggest two being the corny humor and awful slang used throughout the film. It definitely made the film seem somewhat outdated to say the least. In summation, this movie is worth a look if a person enjoys biker films or movies produced during the 50's. But that's about it. In any case, I rate it as slightly below average.
