So Bad It's Awesome 1970 trash/exploitation B action flick by Jack Starret, also known as The Losers, about a gang of bikers called "The Devil's Advocates" that is recruited by the US military to undertake a rescue operation of a CIA agent imprisoned by the Viet Cong in Cambodia during the Vietnam War. The idea for the film, if you'll believe it, was derived from the fact that the real Hell's Angels biker gang actually did offer its services as guerilla fighters in the war to President Johnson, only for the offer to be declined.

Is a predecesor of Rambo; and could charitably be described as Rambo with motorcycles but the for the fact that it precedes it by 14 years.

Makes a brief appearance in Pulp Fiction as the motorcycle movie Fabienne watches but isn't sure of the name of.
