  1. This startlingly lame tale about a young upstart challenging a veteran leader of the pack doesn't update the genre, it simply recasts it.

    Though it's only 90 minutes, the film drags, making these not-so-easy riders pretty tough to watch.

    However you pronounce Bythewood -- I assume it's by-the-wood -- his work here is strictly by the numbers.

    This motorcycle melodrama is so stupid that during the press screening my colleagues' laughter threatened to drown out the roar of the engines.

    Could and should have been a giddy, tongue-in-cheek action-comedy romp. Instead, it's a meandering action-drama, in which nearly all of the abundant laughs are unintentional.

    There's not enough fast and even less furious.
  7. Has the stink of man-musk all over it.

    Unintentional comedy that will bore even the 15-year-olds at which it is undoubtedly aimed.

    More "the mild one" than "The Wild One."

    Too bad that when the filmmakers aren't busy accommodating cameo models and comedians, they seem to be dozing off at the handlebars. Luckily, we're watching from a different side of the highway.
  13. The movie is so sloppily written and directed that its bits of bluster never cohere.
