"You're the only guy I ever met who can start at the bottom and go down!"
For genre enthusiasts looking for beer-and-sweat perfumed trash entertainment, Hell's Chosen Few is an option to be considered. David L. Hewitt, who is generally known for his grade Z scifi films, takes a trip into the world of outlaw biker cinema, and the result is mostly on par with other extremely low budget guilty pleasures such as Brad F. Grinter's 'Devil Rider!', and in fact does its humble job so competently that we can't be too critical of its...well, artistic shortcomings.
The most essential feature of any biker film, drunken party sequences, are all there, taking a pretty hefty chunk of the running time, but accompanied by jukebox music just groovy enough for you to just sit there and take it all in, occasionally wondering whether that plot about saving a framed biker from the clutches of a wife-beating sheriff has been completely forgotten about. Action on the motorcycles themselves, however, is sadly absent.
The main character of the film is a Vietnam vet who joins Hell's Chosen Few with hopes of getting his innocent biker brother out of trouble, but soon finds himself more compelled to drink beers and hang out with his new girlfriend than to do anything that would help his wrongly accused family member, so not much else than debauchery and arguing with law enforcement takes place until the very end of the picture, where we are treated to an amusing, ironic ending. A worthwhile biker film!
