The way HOME has a great story line of Hickok's coming of age as ofMorgan's coming of age. The story of how the 60's pulled familiesapart. I can see how the reviews were low on this movie because of theacting but the cinematography is wonderful, as well as an excellentsoundtrack to portray a vivid and heart warming story of family,friends and times. Possibly you need to have been raised it this timeline to fully understand. I highly recommend the viewing of this movie,if it doesn't effect your soul, then you are truly in trouble as ahuman being.

The attention to detail on the motorcycles is very good, even the blueBilly bike that Wes is riding is an exact replica except for the color.And the other vintage motorcycles makes the watch worth while.

I feel the lack luster of this movie was do to the director not beingable to pull the best and most realistic performance from his actors.With better direction this could have been a top ten movie.

7 / 10

Looking back (through the mirror?)

While this is a sequel it's also kind of a prequel, looking back on what happened before the Original "Easy Rider" (ER). Of course some people might feel offended just by that simple fact. And that impression will not fade with the beginning of the movie. Actually while there is a resemblance (haircut and the general look), the acting feels like a TV soap. And that is not good at all.

Fortunately Jeff Fahey comes along and the "fun" sort of begins. It elevates the movie a bit and it's almost a shame you don't get more of him and his character interaction. But it's more about, where were and were are we going (concerning the characters). There is still a lot of bike love and people who are fond of that will cherish those moments. For everyone else, it's not really that worth while, while not really bad either.
