Storyline Heading
In the world of underground motorcycle clubs, the undefeated racer known as Smoke (Laurence Fishburne) is the undisputed "King of Cali." But Smoke’s dominance of the set is about to be threatened by a young motorcycle racing prodigy called Kid (Derek Luke), who is determined to win Smoke’s helmet and earn the coveted title.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - A movie type similar to "The Fast and the Furious," but with less drama and suspense. Actually, the story is pretty minimal. The movie instead relies more on being "cool." It's clearly targeted at the teen and twentysomething crowd.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "The director, Reggie Rock Bythewood, knows how to shoot the works, but for all of the routine gear shifts in ''Biker Boyz,'' he gets the drama working, too, so that there's something at stake in each of the races.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average "I think what happened here is that the filmmakers were fascinated by the original article, did some research that hooked them on this world, and then trusted the world would be enough to power the movie. It isn't. We need a stronger conflict,...''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Below Average "Those who like the sound of cycles revving and are content with ho-hum racing action will be satisfied, but if a credible plot and compelling characters are on your wish list, this movie sadly disappoints.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Above Average "Loosely based on a New Times article by Michael Gougis, this film offers a look at Southern California motorcycle clubs that's both dizzying and ultimately disappointing. Director Reggie Rock Bythewood's intention appears to have been to transform what could have been THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS on motorcycles into a modern-day Western,...''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

It's easy to see that most people enjoyed "Biker Boyz" very much. Both males and females of all ages enjoyed this movie. There are, however, quite a few who didn't care much for it, rating it just "Good" to as low as "Terrible."

I suspect many of the low opinions are from bikers, because when I saw this movie there were many bikers in the audience. Almost all of them took one of our questionnaires, but very few filled it out. The few that did, indicated that they didn't think the movie was very realistic. So, I suspect the others didn't like the movie either, but didn't want to trash a biker movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.
