Stone [DVD] [1974]

Often hailed by fans of Australian exploitation movies as the best Aussie biker film ever (or as they call them, "bikey" films), Stone has finally been given an authorized video release in the United States in two DVD editions from Severin Films. Along with a deluxe two-disc package, Stone is available in a more modest but still well-rendered single disc version, which features a widescreen transfer of the film letterboxed at the film's original aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and enhanced for anamorphic play on 16x9 monitors. The image quality is very good, and while there are some occasional visible flaws in the source materials, most of the time the print used is all but spotless; the picture is sharp and the saturated colors of Graham, Lind's camerawork look great. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, retaining the original monophonic sound mix, and the fidelity is fine, sounding as good as the elements are likely to allow. The dialogue is in English, with no subtitles or multiple language options included. The only bonus item on the single disc edition is Stone's original theatrical trailer; if you're interested in additional goodies, you'll have to buy the two-disc special edition, but at least the less expensive version makes a clean, attractive transfer of a great, hard-to-find movie easily available, and fans of Seventies genre cinema will want this in their collection.

Synopsis

Stone
An undercover cop named Stone (Ken Shorter) infiltrates an outlaw biker gang called the Grave Diggers, only to discover that he has more in common with the two-wheeled warriors than he previously though after a professional assassin attempts to set them up for a big fall. A prominent environmental activist has just been assassinated, and the police suspect that the Grave Diggers are withholding crucial information relating to the killing. Realizing that the Grave Diggers will never speak to regular policemen, the cops recruit Stone to ride with the gang and find out what they know. Accepted into the fold after saving the life of a grateful Grave Digger, Stone begins to respect the Undertaker (Sandy Harbutt) and his crew due to the fact that they operate by their own unique code of ethics. Later, as the Grave Diggers prepare to strike back against a rival motorcycle club, Stone suspects a set-up and attempts to convince them not to fall for it. Unfortunately for everyone involved, Stone was correct. When the violence finally erupts, no one is safe from the bloodshed that threatens to destroy the Grave Diggers, and consume Stone in the process. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
