As the product-filled title suggests, this is the story of two walking clichés: Harley (Mickey Rourke), a Road Warrior-biker type, and his drifter pal, Marlboro (Don Johnson), a Duke Wayne wannabe. Together these macho misfits pull off a heist to help a needy friend, only to find themselves caught in a showdown with organized crime. All the virile violence in this buddy picture is lackluster — we’ve seen these fights, chases, and shoot-outs before. Video further cramps the movie’s minimal style; the action ends up so packed it’s claustrophobic — when four leather-clad bad guys show up, their long black coats alone fill the entire screen. Harley Davidson, which stalled at the box office, is unlikely to rev up on video. D
