Waste of a good cast. For a movie about bike racing, it never gets up to speed.

Movie Info

Two generations of radical bikers face off in this rubber-burning action drama. Manuel "Smoke" Galloway (Laurence Fishburne) is the leader of the Black Knights, an underground motorcycle club.

Kid (Derek Luke) is a gifted young rider whose father was once

Guy flicks can be just as galling as the chick variety.

After Dancing in September, his droll examination of race and representation in Hollywood, Bythewood now hawks contrived escapism in lieu of provoking thought.

When the filmmakers aren't busy accommodating cameo models and comedians, they seem to be dozing off at the handlebars.

At times entertaining, but never boring. It sure could have been a lot worse.

Watchable cheese.

... Director Reggie Rock Bythewood assures us of two things beyond all doubt: motorcycles are really loud and really fast.

A surprisingly ambivalent entry in genre that's usually brain-dead.

Unless you're willing to wade through a ton of offal to see some cool bikes, you're better off at the Honda showroom.

Essentially, Biker Boyz is a soap opera wrapped up in the trashy-but-flashy packaging of The Fast and the Furious.

June 26, 2003 Full Review

Biker Boyz spins its wheels, makes with the smoke and the noise, but never really gets very far - and for a movie about motorcycle racing, that's like coming in last place.

June 10, 2003 Full Review Source:

Despite the impressive cast and surplus of extraordinary vehicles, the film loses air after the first half, and rookie director Reggie Rock Bythewood can't seem to escape from a music-video mentality.

A dull soap with a baffling paucity of thrills.

Isn't really good enough to hold your attention but at least doesn't abuse it too badly in the fleeting moments that it does.

At times it feels as though there are more subplots and one-shot minor characters in the mix than bikes on the screen.

In the end the exposition outweighs the thrills.

Ultimately, the picture isn't especially fast or furious, just fleeting.

A somewhat flat clone of Furious -- not the greatest source with which to base material on in the first place.

Audience Reviews for Biker Boyz

Feeble rip-off of The Fast And The Furious with motorbikes. It's true that TFATF was also dim-witted, contrived and loaded with cliches, but at least it did it with visual flair. This is just a waste of time.

Good movie. This movie only have a little sad parts. The music is good.

Not your average biker flick...Lawrence Fishburne once again delivers a believeable performance dispite the odds set up against him. Truly one of his most memorable performance since "Boyz 'N the Hood".
