Guilty? Sort of. A pleasure? Indubitably!

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 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!

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. 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.

Butch and Sundance ride again

Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man is a film not for the serious and not for the serious minded. This modern version of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid casts Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson as a pair of devil may care bikers who live by their own rules and cross back and forth between the law and being outlaws. Sometimes they blend the line real close.

Because some tight bankers are trying to foreclose on a favorite bar hangout of their's, just for a lark these two decide to rob the bank that's giving them the grief. Just like in Charley Varrick it turns out to be a syndicate front that not only launders money, but keeps the drugs on premises including a new designer drug that these two walk off with the prototype.

I will say that Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson have the same easy going chemistry that Paul Newman and Robert Redford had. They make a somewhat silly plot easy to digest.

Daniel Baldwin of the thespian Baldwin family also looks like he's feasting on the furniture playing the head bad guy. There's a gimmick involving a pair of old and patchworn boots that Don Johnson wears. In that final showdown with Baldwin those boots actually play a part in the climax.

This one is one to enjoy and not get too cerebral over.
