Not Great but not Complete Garbage

This is a pretty decent "B" movie Sean Patrick Flannery(Boondock Saints, Dexter) in an early role as the "Cowboy" small town hero with Lou Diamond Phillips(La bamba) as the big bad biker president. Biggest complaints are as a villian Lou isnt menacing enough or quite evil enough, the confrontations end up being somewhat anti climactic between hero and villian. Most of all coming from a family of bikers they try to pass off so many junk bikes as Harley choppers

Lone hero is one of those movies that proves you don't need a big budget to make a enjoyable movie. Lou diamond phillips is great as the leader of the iron bandits. He plays the bad guy very well and has some great lines. And sean patrick flanery is great as the reluctant hero. The movie never gets bogged down either moving at a pretty consistent pace with plenty of action along the way all leading to the eventual shoot out between the iron bandits and townspeople. Lone hero is a great movie to pop in when you don't want to think to hard or be amazed by multi million dollar effects. To me it has everything a good movie needs memorable heroes and villians, good writing with some memorable lines and a decent amount of action delivered at a steady pace.

The acting was good, the story was alright and it was interesting to see Lou Diamond Philips play a bad guy. For some reason Hollywood seems to think that the only way to make a guy seem tough is to have them say the "F" word & "G D" over and over again. Almost all the bikes were Hondas, most were Honda Magnas and Shadows. The Harley at the end of the movie did not seem to be in the rest of the movie and there was one HD Sportster, with a long front end, but if there were any other HD's I missed them. Boy, these were some big tough bikers on their 750 Honda's.

I'll agree with the previous writer, it's pretty cool seeing Lou Diamond Phillips (LDP) play a "bad-guy." The action is alright and there is a cool lookin' bike in the movie. Though most of the Outlaw Club that LDP is riding with are on old Jap' bikes. It's a decent movie but it's short (under 90 minutes). Good in some ways, since the "towns people" seem to be extras that were given speaking roles?!

(Free advice; Take it for what it worth. I really like "Beyond the Law" with Charlie Sheen. LOTS of bikes, babes and booze!)
