Finally saw Hell's Angels '69 and it did not disappoint!
I've almost seen all the AIP biker flicks now. Just a couple more to finish that batch. This one was important, though. It features the real Hells Angels as co-stars in the film. Sonny Barger and Terry the Tramp have some serious screen-time. Sonny's not much of an actor, though, let's be honest. Terry looks like a bonefide caveman. Straight up Venom style with those leather gauntlets.
Hells Angels '69 has a legitimate plot. This in and of itself is unheard of in the biker flick genre. But this has passable editing and a passable plot. Obviously it's full of continuity errors, shitty acting, bad audio synching, and the whole nine yards, but still. The bar has been set from a somewhat professional level (not including Easy Rider which of course is the gold standard and on a whole other level than any biker flick before or since).
This movie covers all the biker cliches with the exception of boob shots and a dessert love-in. Otherwise it's all taken care of. The bikes are truly amazing. It's pretty awesome to see REAL Hells Angles from the 60's. Their bikes were phenomenal. Some really great camerawork showing the whole crew riding from various vantage points. It's pretty rad.
Everyone was impressed with this flick. It was given a "top 5" status by the Flying Skülls.
You can stream it now on Amazon Prime for free or I think you can catch the whole thing on YouTube.... Do it up!
