Karry Best movie of this year hands down!
HeadlinesExotic Boring
Dirtylogy It's funny, it's tense, it features two great performances from two actors and the director expertly creates a web of odd tension where you actually don't know what is happening for the majority of the run time.
Suman Roberson It's a movie as timely as it is provocative and amazingly, for much of its running time, it is weirdly funny.
ddecarlo-63344 Love the show but just cant seem to understand why they had everyone in the show drinking Budweiser a St louis beer when they were in Milwaukee the beer capital of the US at the time....... thought it would have been Schlitz Beer......????
flowertimezones This series was not meant to be a documentary, so historically inaccurate segments are expected. What it turned out to be is a fast moving (3 decades in three episodes) dramatization of the spirit of entrepreneur-ism, which accurately depicts many failures. I used this show as an example to my kids about how entrepreneurs and business people often fail, but those that succeed are the ones who continued to push in spite of the failures. These guys never gave up on the idea itself and never gave in to the setbacks and outright disasters along the way; the war, the great depression, personal illness, patent issues, failed designs, failed races, competition, money issues, etc. (many of which did happen). That is the true heart of entrepreneurship - even if some of the situations never occurred or were exaggerated. The spirit was there and you felt it throughout the entire series. Kudos...
scottscientist Did the makers of this mini-series only work on episodes 1 and 2? The only reason I ask this is because the 3rd installment seemingly forgets to address the cliffhanger that ends episode 2. H-D is in a damned if you do damned if you don't patent infringement case against other bike manufacturers and facing bankruptcy. However, instead of addressing how they emerged from this problem episode III starts off during the start of the Great Depression and says nary a word about the patent case. I could not find any reference to this case so it may have been made for dramatic effect but even so it should have been addressed in the story. I was also surprised that the film makers did not mention that Shrimp Burns dies in a motorcycle race. The final episode meanders through the pathos of the depression and Bill Harley's wife's illness but just can't match the feel and fun of the first two episodes that for me rank 8 and 7 out of 10 respectively.
lauraewhite-44732 Don't waste your time on this dreck. I'm ashamed we did. The acting, casting, writing and plot development is an embarrassment. Everyone involved in this project should just crawl under a rock. I feel like I'm watching an episode of Hogans Heroes meets Fantasy Island, except those campy TV shows were far more entertaining. The basic plot is that a bunch of anachronistically depicted young men act like caricatures and are somehow representing a historically accurate view of the inception of Harley Davidson motorcycle. This review is longer than the movie but is written better. One of the characters is about 20 years older than his peers and has hair like John Stamos. In fact he might be John Stamos' love baby with Rip Torn. My husband and I are laughing like fools writing this review which thank god is keeping our eyes off of this horrible mini series.
