"On the trail of the midnight ride..."
Biker Boyz, the new movie by Reggie Rock-Blythewood (writer of Get on the Bus and writer/director of Dancing In September), starring Messrs. Fishburne & Luke (along with a personal, lost favorite, Larenz "O-Dog" Tate), may seem to be just a motorcycle repeat of The Fast and the Furious. But, beyond the need for speed, it also gets into the lifes of a bunch of affluent, Black professionals who use the motorcycle subculture as an outlet and release for the pressures they endure in the corporate jungle. It's MUCH smarter than the ads let on. Check it out this weekend.
