The Wild Angels

The foreword to this well-turned-out Roger Corman production is its tipoff: 'The picture you are about to see will shock and perhaps anger you. Although the events and characters are fictitious, the story is a reflection of our times'.

The foreword to this well-turned-out Roger Corman production is its tipoff: ‘The picture you are about to see will shock and perhaps anger you. Although the events and characters are fictitious, the story is a reflection of our times’.

For thematic motivation, Corman, who produces in almost documentary style, chooses the marauding of the Hell’s Angels. Pinpointed here, the Angels, in vicious stride and without regard for law and order, operate in a Southern California beach community, and it is upon this particular segment that Corman directs his clinical eye in dissecting their philosophical (?) rebellion.

Corman tackles assignment with realism, taking apart the cult and giving its members an indepth study as he follows a gang headed by Peter Fonda in their defiance of common decencies.

Fonda lends credence to character, voicing the creed of the Angels in ‘wanting to do what we want to do’ without interference, and is well-cast in part.
