Forced by the imminent foreclosure of their friend's bar, two lifelong buddies will decide to rob a bank's armoured car, not knowing that its cargo is not money but a new street drug.
The tough biker Harley and his no less tough cowboy friend Marlboro learn that an old friend of theirs will lose his bar, because a bank wants to build a new complex there and demands 2.5 million dollars for a new contract in advance. Harley and Marlboro decide to help him by robbing the corrupt bank. They rob the Bank transport and get hold of an amount of a new synthetic drug. Now they are targeted by criminal bankers.
Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson are the title characters, an outlaw biker and former rodeo cowboy, respectively. Harley rides his bike back to L.A. in a slightly "futuristic" year (1996) to hook up with old pals such as Marlboro, Jimmy (Giancarlo Esposito), Jose (Eloy Casados), Jack (wrestler Big John Studd), and their father figure (Julius Harris), who runs the Rock 'n' Roll Bar and Grill. It's about to be foreclosed by a greedy bank, so Harley gets the bright idea to hold up that same bank for the money. However, the take is not money but a new street drug, "Crystal Dream". Harley and Marlboro must spend the rest of the movie dodging persistent muscle men who represent the villain, Chance Wilder (Tom Sizemore).
This movie is not so much blatant product placement (as the opening text tells us), as it is a fairly goofy, mildly amusing action thriller. There's nothing special here, but the pace, the costumes (dig those bulletproof overcoats on the thugs), the soundtrack, the solid supporting cast, and the rapport between Rourke and Johnson make it all watchable enough. Screenwriter Don Michael Paul does give our two leads some good character defining moments, as well as a romantic angle as Marlboro realizes that he's about to lose his girlfriend Virginia Slim (Chelsea Field) for good. Although this movie does get grim and pretty violent, it's still not something to take all that seriously. It sure as Hell doesn't worry about things such as credibility.
Field at least has some material to work with, but the other super sexy ladies present (Vanessa Williams, Tia Carrere, and Kelly Hu) barely get anything to do. The cast also includes familiar faces such as Daniel Baldwin (as the primary henchman), Robert Ginty, Branscombe Richmond, and Sven-Ole Thorsen, with old pro Harris standing out. Sizemore is okay, but his bad guy role lacks any sort of personality or real threat. One funny touch is that Rourkes' Harley is NO good with a gun.
Unmemorable, but it's decent brainless fun for 99 minutes.
Six out of 10. Biker Harley Davidson (Mickey Rourke) joins up with his cowboy friend Robert Lee Anderson aka The Marlboro Man (Don Johnson). Their friend is in danger of losing his bar to the bank. The boys and other cohorts decide to rob an armored truck from Great Trust Bank. Only they are attacked by heavily armed assassins. They escape with bags that are surprisingly filled with a special new drug. The bank president Chance Wilder (Tom Sizemore) is dealing the drugs and uses his gunmen to hunt down the boys.
It's a silly action B-movie. I'm willing to buy the ridiculous title characters played competently by these two actors. They seem to have fun and this movie could be fun. However the villains especially the black coated assassins are too ridiculous. It pushes it over the edge for me. I can't enjoy this when it looks so stupid. Due to the usage of a butterfly knife two scenes had to be cut in Britian in order to obtain a BBFC 15 rating. This censored version was later released on VHS whereas all cuts were waived for the DVD release which is also rated BBFC 15. a5c7b9f00b
