It's the kind of movie they don't make any more. Packed with testosterone and huge loads of male pride, Harley and Marlboro set out to kick some ass. I really love this movie because it shows like friendship between men works or at least how it is supposed to work. Even though the two main characters haven't met for years, they know where the other one is and when they come together again it's like they never were apart. They also help each other regardless if it will cost their live because in their mind "It's better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool." <more>
Harley Davidson Of course this attitude brings them nothing but trouble but those two take it the macho-way and stand to whatever comes up. And for those who only think it's a modern macho western: "Back off!!" Take a closer look and you will see that there is a lot of soul and spirit hidden between the macho talking and behaviour.
This is a great movie and a true 'cult classic'. Yes I realize it's a spin on Butch Cassidy but it's a good one and it works. Completely overboard action sequences, cheesy and campy humor galore.I'm sick of people giving this movie a bad rating because the action isn't 'believable'. It isn't SUPPOSED to be believable. Is a movie about gigantic, talking, transforming, sentient robots doing battle with each other 'believable'? Give me a break that movie was one big long commercial.If you're a fan of 'cult' flicks you will like this one. If <more>
you'll take the time to check out the profiles of the people leaving bad ratings, most of the bad ratings are coming from British people with awful taste and even worse teeth.
This movie is a loose remake of Butch and Sundance. The jokes are funny as hell when you know the Newman/Redford classic. Many of the scenes, many of the lines, are directly taken from it. If you know that film, you will appreciate this one much more.
No gimmicks, just a fun movie (by Reel_entertainment)
No big action stars here. Nor any super fantastic effects. Nope, it's just good, clean fun from start to finish. This is one of the reasons why 'Harley Davidson & The Marlboro Man' is one of my fav movies. The casting is fine & the movies moves along well. Not to mention a great soundtrack to go along with it. When Harley comes back to town & finds out his favorite bar/hangout is going to close due to not being able to renew the lease, de realizes he has to do something about it. Him & his buddies decide to get the money, but robbing an armored truck. But <more>
They don't make em like this anymore (by NateWatchesCoolMovies)
There are some movies that perfectly encapsulate the late 80's, early 90's epitome of trash bag, chromed up, machismo soaked, violently silly over the top theme park ride vibe of the action genre at that time. Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man is a perfect example of that. It's a down and dirty sleazeball flick that is just so fun. Mickey Rourke plays Harley, a biker cowboy on a steel horse who makes his way back to a slightly futuristic LA to reconnect with his old barfly friends, including the rodeo riding Marlboro Man Don Johnson . Rourke claims he only did this one for the <more>
dough, but I call bullshit. He has such a ball with his leathery tan, cocky prick attitude and spiked hair it's impossible he wasn't invested, even in a purely camp form. Don Johnson is slick and deadly as his trigger happy buddy Marlboro. Between quips, fist and gunfights, smoking and boozing, they try to exact revenge on the tyrannical big city banker Tom Sizemore who laid waste to their friends inner city bar. Sizemore is no stranger to dangerous, mean spirited roles, and he plays the megalomaniac financier with a razor sharp, homicidal calm that's giddily entertaining. A young Tia Carrere shows up as his sultry assistant, as well as work from Daniel Baldwin, Kelly Hu, Vanessa Angel and Chelsea Field. It's no smart action flick, but it's a brutal, tongue in cheek modern western with dusty, broken glass and whiskey soaked style that will entertain anyone who has nostalgia for that era of action movies.
Don Johnson and Mickey Rourke in a buddy-biker-futuristic-action movie, what more do you need?. (by b_kite)
There's a couple of movies in my library that every now and then I just want to unwind and turn my brain off for awhile and "Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man" is defiantly one of my top choices, its a hard to explain buddy-biker-futuristic-action movie, that I don't think much people get or got, even back in 1991. Its a shame to hear about the behind-the-scenes as apparently neither Johnson or Rourke like this movie or each other for that fact. Supporting cast includes Daniel Baldwin, Vanessa Williams, Robert Ginty, Tia Carrere, Big John Studd, and Tom Sizemore. Also $4 <more>
a gallon gas prices, surely that will never happen.
Guilty? Sort of. A pleasure? Indubitably! (by billyweeds)
This is my ultimate guilty pleasure. All my critical faculties tell me it's a trashy action flick with no particular value. But critical faculties don't mean a thing when chemistry is as kinetic as that between Rourke and Johnson, who for my money have Newman and Redford beat by a mile in one of the best "buddy" teamings ever. Moreover, the movie is beautifully cast down the line and the pace is always great. Everything from the costuming of the lead characters to the atmosphere in the bar to the performances by Tom Sizemore and Daniel Baldwin are right on target. But mainly <more>
it's Johnson and Rourke's connection that makes the movie. They're terrific. I've seen this movie several times and it never loses me for an instant. Yeah!
It's Better To Be Dead And Cool Than Alive And Uncool! (by gurochuck)
Here it is 2011 and I'm STILL lovin' this movie! As a matter of fact up until I looked over my IMDb history, I thought I had already reviewed it but much to my surprise I haven't. I guess that will make this review that much more better as it will be one of the more current ones.This is one of those "you-either-get-it-or-you-don't" movies made to appeal to the egos and fantasies of the rugged alpha male. You get that sense at the opening credits as Mickey Rourke's intro scene during the opening credits makes you want to go out and ride a chopped up steel horse. <more>
It's the ultimate escape, at least for men! It's laced w/ moral fiber in that it's all about being down-and-out and still managing to drum up the where-with-all to help your fellow man. IMHO I think this movie's setbacks are through no fault of any of its creators or participants. Looking at many of the cynical reviews of movie-goers and critics of its time, it was clearly ahead of its own genre. And although many might find the title as well as some of the names of the characters to be cheesy Virginia Slim, Jack Daniels, etc , I admire that they took the risk to acknowledge the outlaw, anti-hero biker image through images of Americana. I also read somewhere probably on this site that Rourke did this movie out of desperation which doesn't help a new viewer go in w/ a favorable attitude. Hopefully Mickey can look back and appreciate this piece of work like much of us do. I've still yet to see Butch & Sundance but now I'm inspired to check out Redford and Newman's piece even if it's just for the similarities that many reviewers have suggested.I guess it comes down to the fact that this is much like anything else in that it isn't for everybody. Perhaps the audience it was intended for has dwindled substantially if it's ever really been out there . But if that's so, we can always take comfort in knowing that we have something we can truly appreciate w/o having to be fashionable.
Right after dropping out of college, I rode around Texas on an old Kawasaki KZ900. I would just travel from town to town. If I needed money, I would work in the oil fields and get a few paychecks. I would party, shack up with a woman for a while then move on again.Now I do the 9-5 thing. Drive my daughters to school. Pick up the dry cleaning for my wife on the way home.A few nights ago this movie comes on Showtime. I watched it, looked around at my lot in life and wondered what the hell happened! That is what this film is about and why guys love this movie so much. It is about two guys living <more>
life on their own terms, under their rules. The plot means little in this movie. An armored car robbery gone wrong is just a vehicle. The plot could have been about getting a lost kitten back to it's original owner and been just as watchable.When Harley picks up the sexy hitch hiker at the end and rides off to "nowhere special" every guy wishes he could be riding along side on his own bike. What makes it truly sad for me is that once upon a time I was.
