Their credo is violence…Their God is hate…and they call themselves ‘The Wild Angels’. The ‘Angles’, a San Pedro motorcycle gang, parties in the Coachella Valley’s Palm Springs Indian Canyons, California, and wreaks havoc with the local police.

The Angels sued the director for portraying them as a bunch of incompetent, hedonistic, capricious, violent, raping sociopathic loser dullards. We wanna be free to ride our machines without being hassled by corMan! Second the motion!
Les méfaits d'un groupe de Hell's Angels californiens dirigé par le charismatique "Heavenly Blues".
Affrontements avec des bandes rivales, opposition aux autorités locales. Avec un Peter Fonda royal !
In many ways a prelude to Easy Rider. I liked the film, especially the rather insane ending at the church, but it still felt rather empty. Hopper got it right, Corman started the conversation. 3.5 stars
I've never been much of a bike(r) enthusiast, but I do understand the desire for freedom and feeling the wind in your hair. The freedom to rape and overall act like an asswipe while destroying everything in the process for no apparent reason isn't part of my dream, though. The Wild Angels is still a fantastic portrayal of the time, and entails some gorgeous scenes of open roads with a fantastic soundtrack.
