Momoa's Directorial Debut

Jason Momoa's mother was raped and killed, and the authorities didn't care; she was an Indian, after all. So Momoa. That's a different matter, since the rapist was White. So Momoa gets on his motorcycle and rides through the American Southwest, dodging the FBI and spreading his mothers ashes.

In his ramblings, we get a view of the underclasses that inhabit the character's world, trying to live their own, casual lives while avoiding the iron fist of the Authorities. It's a bleak, inhospitable world with flashes of beauty and violence, and although mostly derivative, is a pleasant watch. With Lisa Bonet (she and Momoa married in 2017), Lance Henriksen, and Michael Hayes.

This is a picture people love because of the anti-legal system message and not because of the acting. The story centers on Robert Wolf (Jason Momoa) a Native American in need of a bath. He is on the run from the law on a bike that requires Wolf to also be a mechanic. Wolf brutally killed Charles Grisby (Charlie Brumbly) who raped and killed his mother (neither event shown). Wolf feels Grisby wasn't punished enough and enacted his own justice system, one most people agreed with as he is aided and abetted by everyone he meets. Wolf's noble goal is to scatter his mother's ashes in a proper Mohave ceremony. Along the way he tangos up with Cash (Robert Homer Mollohan) making this film look like a remake of Easy Rider.

In a subplot, Wolf is pursued by two unrealistic federal agents who are 1-2 steps behind him.

The film utilizes independent tough guy, pro-libertarian, pro-anarchist, anti-government themes and similar hokey dialogue to drive home the point that the justice system discriminates against this case Native Americans played by Fort Indians.

I am sure the same people who love this film will be the same types who loved "Billy Jack" (Part 1 and not the unwatchable sequels). The DVD cover claims "the road has unexpected turns." I didn't find anything new or unexpected.

Filmed in California, a state that has helmet laws. Now that was unexpected.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, brief sex. Nudity (Jordan Peterman). Brief night time rape scene. Some fighting/blood glorified.

Momoa's biker flick

Robert Wolf (Jason Momoa) is a native American from the Mojave reservation. He's wanted by the law after killing his mother's rapist. He is joined by unstable fellow rider Cash.

Jason Momoa is the star, the director, and also co-wrote the script. He has basically made a 70's biker movie, probably inspired by Easy Rider. It's not bad but I wouldn't call it great. It has some interesting moments but it doesn't have a real direction. In a way, that's the movie and the road trip. There are interesting sections like the bare knuckle fight and carrying the rape victim with flares. It does need to show a snippet of the inciting killing incident at the start of the movie. It's missing that and the movie struggles to get into gear at the beginning. If I had to dissect Momoa's abilities, he's a charismatic lead and his directing style is functional biker flick. There is a bit of art to his work but nothing exceptional. The writing is the one main aspect lacking and quite frankly, one can only guess at what he actually wrote for this movie. Next time, he should get a better writer to polish off his script.
