HELMET HEADS is a comedy about a group of friends who ride motor-bikes for a living doing deliveries while also doing a bit on the side like collecting debts. The head of the group appears to be the one with a birthmark – an unfunny running joke.
One of them loses his job and ends up giving driving lessons while his friends sit cramped in the back seats. They throw a party which he does not show up for. That is the extent of the humour found in this sad excuse for a comedy. Think SUPERTROOPERS without the laugh-out loud humour.
The two SUPERTROOPERS films have got really bad reviews though they are really funny. So know what to expect from HELMET HEADS. The film is low budget with low production values.
The best camerawork appears to be the camera placed in front of the cyclists showing them riding their bikes. Shot in Costa Rica.
