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.

Not without moments of excitement, romance and rubber-burning redemption.

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

Biker Boyz is just a silly film.

The training-wheels version of The Fast And The Furious.

Has the stink of man-musk all over it.

The perfect testosterone-fueled, flash-edited, music-driven joy ride.

It takes some work to make 100-mph motorcycle races boring, but they've managed to pull it off here.

As street-racing pictures go, Biker Boyz doesn't do anything unexpected. But because it takes its characters seriously and slows down enough for us to get to know them.

Biker Boyz is the kind of movie Howard Hawks would have made if he'd lived long enough to feel the heat of hip-hop's impact on the culture at large.

Though the bikes are fast, the drama idles, with corny characters taking themselves more seriously than heads of state negotiating arms treaties.

As films go, it's as bad as an Elvis movie some of the time and better than an Elvis movie, but not by much, the rest of the time.

It's too long and self-consciously progressive to be entertaining, but it's too well-intentioned to be dismissed altogether.

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

There's a good story in here somewhere, but it's been dumbed down for Biker Boyz.

Biker Boyz has an idea, but not an approach.

Even if you don't know much about motorcycles going in, by the end of Biker Boyz, the words 'manifold exhaust' may suddenly seem clear to you.

In some ways, watching Biker Boyz is like watching two hours of chest-bumping.

The characters are largely uninteresting, the movie has little panache and the motorcycle races blend one into another.

Biker Boyz is like a mega-powered motorcycle with nowhere to go.

Timid about pushing the action pic envelope and an uncertain of tone, Biker Boyz never really busts out of second gear.

Biker Boyz is about fast motorcycles and the tough dudes -- and even tougher chicks -- who soup them up in illegal street races. Unfortunately, it's about more than that.

With its choppy pacing and tentative acting, the movie often feels like a montage of film clips hastily pasted together to tell a story.

Biker Boyz boasts a few show-off-y camera moves and a whole lot of desperately stale dialogue.

Like most of the Westerns it was patterned after, Boyz is disposable entertainment.

A blatant re-spin of The Fast and the Furious that also happens to be a far better movie.
