Okay, the plot's a little lacking and the acting is wooden, but this is a fabulous peek into life in the seventies in and around Sydney. That is, life in a motorcycle gang in the seventies. Great stuff!
It was a classic when I first saw it in '74, still a classic now better than Mad Max tho a little dated.
Like 'Mad Max' on a trip!
May have a certain cheesy taste that renders the experience okay at best. Can't help feeling there were too many missed opportunities, wooden and stereotypical acting from the lead role down are hard to overcome. Still quite watchable.
Go the Kwaka 900,s. This movie is really of it's time.
A great Australian classic. The interviews in the extras are interesting as well.
Stone was considered an extremely contraversial film in its time and remains extremely contraversial to this day. It is a cult bikie-classic centred around the Australian underworld of motorcycle gangs. The plot is a little weak, centred around a political assasination and a corporate attempt to destroy a bikie gang and an undercover cop's intervention.
The film has many good performances and a good rock'n'roll soundtrack by Billy Green. There is a copious amount of graphic violence which is not for the weak of stomach, and portrayal of Satanic rituals, sex and nudity is best not seen by those of strong religious sentiment.
A good nostalgia film - try not to pick up too much 70s slang.
Contraversial, gory, and insanely violent. For its time, Stone was a rare look at the rebellious side of Australian culture, especially the bikie-underworld. The film was graphically violent, confrontationally Satanic, and should not be seen by those of strong religious sentiment.
Good rock'n'roll soundtrack by Billy Green and decent performances.
Definately a classic thats worth watching
This movie was made in the ealy 70's. If you like the old Z900's, you will like this movie.
