Atom User Reviews for Easy Rider 50th Anniversary
It was better 50 years ago
Easy Rider is more than just 2 guys on bikes, riding across country. It's the penultimate movie about freedom, and what it takes to be free. It also shows that, even though it was set in the turbulent 1960's America, some things are unfortunately still the same in the country. If you've never seen it, it's a must see. If you've seen it dozens of times, like me, see it again. And, definitely see it on the big screen.
Still relevant and important today as it was when it first came out
Great to see on the big screen!
Not the same impact as it was the first time but still a great flick. Hopper was too, as always.
In 1969 Easy Rider was movie that started a following. But who would think of the actors or actresses in the movie and where They would be now and what they have accomplished in the last 50 years.
Someday it was inevitable that a great film would come along, utilizing the motorcycle genre, the same way the great Westerns suddenly made everyone realize they were a legitimate American art form, Easy Rider is the picture.
Fonda and Hopper’s now-classic film hit the old guard with the force of a rifle shot to the head. [Review of re-release]
