Movie Review: Wild Hogs


Featuring: Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, William H. Macy, Ray Liotta, Marisa Tomei

Genre: comedy

Plot: four middle age friends go on a bike ride towards the Mexican border

Acting: was a bit hard to notice because of the multitude of cheap gags

Drama: middle age crisis + a biker gang who’s set to no good… + one’s a dentist, one’s ruined, one is house wife, and one has no sex life

Action: bike rides, gang fights

Funny: it tries a bit too much… puerile jokes

Visuals: nothing spectacular

Soundtrack: don’t remember

Comments: If it hadn’t been for Ray Liotta staring in it I wouldn’t have bothered. He delivered, portraying the usual bad intense villain messed up in the head he’s known for. Reminded me a bit of Hando aka Russell Crowe in Romper Stomper only with hair. The ending was a bit disappointing, he gave up to easily.

Rating: 3/5
