  • David Wiegand

    The script by Evan Wright, Seth Fisher and Nick Schenk bristles with appealing gee-whiz energy, and the performances by Huisman, Aramayo and Hall, as well as those of the supporting cast, are perfectly in tune with the retro sensibility of the film.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    The miniseries, allegedly based in fact, is one great big advertorial for the company, not that it doesn’t have its pleasures, chief among them some thrilling road contests that suggest the chariot races of “Ben-Hur.”

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    The series does a competent job of setting mood and character--notably that anything is possible, the sky’s the limit drive of the early 20th century that animated great inventions, and consequently great fortunes.

    It’s certainly energetic TV, but requires a strenuous suspension of disbelief.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Robert Yaniz Jr.

    Strong performances and an ambitious scope are underserved by disjointed pacing and a scattered focus in Discovery Channel's new miniseries Harley and the Davidsons.

  • Dan Fienberg

    This is hog hagiography, pure and simple. It's three nights of American vehicular heroism.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Allison Keene

    The series drops plot threads faster than the Harley prototype leaked oil, but it makes up for a lot (including hokey dialogue and predictable story turns) with thrilling race sequences.

  • Sonia Saraiya

    Everything else is kind of a mess: The story never fully makes sense, and the characters are rarely fleshed out. It’s hard to begrudge the motorcyclists their fun, but Harley and the Davidsons is a historical production that doesn’t feel authentic in any capacity.
