Reviews

  • "Some films merely offer you a clockwork plot. Others, like Jeff Nichols’ smokin’ cool THE BIKERIDERS, whisk you away with a roar of mood and atmosphere."
    - TheWrap
  • "It goes a long way to humanize figures who’ve been long misrepresented on film, while giving audiences privileged access to this inner world."
    - Variety
  • "What resonates beyond the brawls and blood is a profound affection for the people onscreen — those grace notes provided by a fine cast, with Jodie Comer and Tom Hardy stirring undercurrents that are particularly affecting precisely because they’re never explicitly examined or explained."
    - The Hollywood Reporter
  • "An affectionate take on a much-romanticized subculture, THE BIKERIDERS purrs along rather than zips, but its stellar cast ensures a smooth ride as Jeff Nichols offers some insights into the highs and lows of a legendary motorcycle gang."
    - IGN Movies
  • "It’s a vivid, fleshed-out insider’s eye view of a subculture populated by authentically hard-edged lost souls."
    - Screen International
  • "Exudes authenticity, from the metal stallions its characters take onto the highway to the dirt-smeared denims they love to wear."
    - Neil Smith
  • "Jodie Comer roars into her first Great American Film Role. And in his finest effort yet, Mud director Jeff Nichols has given her quite the machine to ride on."
    - London Evening Standard
  • "Jeff Nichols subverts the genre with a story that manages to be endearing, gritty, hilarious, and absolutely heartbreaking, all at the same time."
