Thriller/Horror Rated R
Poker Run - Live to Ride, Ride to DIE! Robert and Allan are two upstanding lawyers, suburbanites, husbands caught in the grip of boring normalcy that sometimes plagues us all - the wife, the house, the cars, the debt. A quiet desperation that often finds its own unique outlet in the form of the motorcycle; an ultimate expression of freedom now consigned to weekend outings straddled by flocks of rich urban bikers living out Easy Rider fantasies. However Robert and Allan's biker fantasies soon come crashing headlong into the brutal realities of biker life when they find themselves in the hands of two psychopaths on wheels, Ray and Billy. In the middle of a Poker Run, a desert bike rally between Victorville and Vegas, Ray and Billy abduct Robert and Allan's wives and leave the two men with an ultimatum of death if they ever hope to see the women alive again. Now they must follow a bizarre set of clues that include several horrifying tasks that will leave the sweltering Mojave desert deafened by the roar of motorcycles and awash in blood!
The acting overall was average with JD Rutometkin and Debra Hopkins standing out as better than the rest.
Lots of gore, despite being more in the thriller genre than horror, several bloody violent scenes.
One actress is seen bloody and topless after she is presumably raped (we don't see it, it picks up after that), and one is seen topless after cheating on her husband with the villain.
Surprisingly entertaining movie, as my expectation where certainly pretty low when starting it, but it turned out to be a pretty entertaining and gory road movie. Not the best ever, and certainly not the most unique premise or story, but if you pick it up with reasonable expectations, you will probably come out satisfied.
