Director: George A. Romero
Year Released: 1981
A group inspired by the legend of King Arthur - and led by proud King William (Ed Harris) - ride around Western Pennsylvania on motorcycles jousting and clubbing each other and getting into trouble with the police - a little later, a civil war forms within the group, with some of them following Sir Morgan (Tom Savini), who wants to "sell out." By the looks of it, this had to have been one of the most dangerous-looking movies ever made - it's a miracle no one was permanently injured - but for all the zippy vroom-vrooming (which gets a little tiring after a while) and high-minded ideals (Harris is basically a Jim Jones-type cult leader ... or Don Quixote), it has little to say to justify its extreme length, and often it seems Romero just wanted to photograph his beloved Pittsburgh for close to three hours. According to Harris, Romero was under tons of pressure to make this (and financially strapped), which might explain why it was the last non-horror movie he ever made....
