Review by anonymous (posted on 20-May-2006)

I saw this movie when was first released. It was about the politics of being a cop with a strong emphisis on police corruption. How your career could be changed if you didn't kiss the right asses or to an abrupt end if you fuck with the wrong people. Like what happened to the character that Robert Blake played. He didn't kiss ass so he was demoted and put on road patrol on a blue Harley Electra Glide, thus the name of the movie. The movie ended when Blake pulled over a bus load of hippies because there was something very wrong about them. Blake couldn't find any stoners because the stash was not in plain sight. For those who aren't in the know there was a time in America when the cops couldn't tear your car apart because they have a hunch or you give them a reason to think you are a stoner or anything else for that matter. Blake forgot to give the driver his license back and went roaring off to catch the van to return the license. The hippies figured the jig was up and blew blake away with a shogun. For Harley lovers like myself it was heart breaking to see what happened to the blue Electra Glide. The morol of the story is that it doesn't pay to be a nice guy.
