    A good boys own type adventure yarn with all the right elements for viewers of all ages and both sexes, but with an eye on motorbikes, smoking and looking cool in a James Dean kind of way the guys will probably enjoy more. You could compare this to classics like 'The Great Escape' or 'Where Eagles Dare' accept the cast is young and unknown but this works well in the film and the story. Its alittle silly, a young hotrod biker is given the choice of jail or helping the army teach its recruits to ride bikes, unlikely but who knows. There is much tomfoolery and crossed wires of course as the biker punk gets to grips with his new role but its enjoyable to watch and throw in a soppy romance between him and the Colonels daughter so all bases are covered for all. Things get even better as the young troops get sent on a mission to Spain, in a bike race oddly, which equals aliitle bit more gritty action against nasty Germans/Spanish with some killing going on but nothing graphic. A good Sunday afternoon flick to watch with a nice happy ending to lift you, can't spoil the film as its pretty obvious what will happen :)

    It's really too bad this film didn't make it to the big-times. I, for one, really enjoyed it. It's about old 1940's motorcycles in the army. I believe John Stamos to be a top notch actor and he should really have credit given to him, other than being "Uncle Jesse" on "Full House". This is a whole nother side of him that we, the viewers don't see. It's worth a look, and then it's worth a second look.
