This was the start of the Billy Jack Legacy as this movie hit the theaters on August 18 1967 starring Tom Laughlin as Billy Jack, Elizabeth James as Vicky Barrington, and Jeremy Slate as Daniel Carmody. A motorcycle gang led by Daniel Danny Carmody rides through the local towns terrorizing the people and the local law is afraid of them. Enters Vicky Barrington who races to the airport to pick up her dad only to find out that she was rejected again. While the gang is riding the come across a young kid who they beat up and Billy Jack comes to his rescue. Billy is arrested along with the bikers and thrown in jail. The gang ends up raping four women who they have threaten the women into not testifying. Vicki who was raped goes under the protection of Billy Jack who has also had several altercations with the gang. The gang escalates their pressure on both Vicki and Billy Jack to keep her out of the courtroom. Some facts you may not know. This picture was banned from Sweden because of its high violence rating in 1968, 1972, and 1975. When Billy Jack and Vicky go into eat at a local restaurant they are met by an astrologer. The astrologer asks Billy when his birthday is, Billy told him August 10, and that is the real birthday of Tom Laughlin. Thoughts on the movie! I thought it was a great movie that kept my interest all the way through. You can see way Tom Laughlin did all four Billy jack pictures because he was excellent in his role as Billy Jack. Elizabeth James was excellent in her role as Vicky Barrington. She was gorgeous riding around in that white bikini on her bike. Because of Vicky and the action in this movie I give this picture 10 weasel stars.

The Beginning of the Billy Jack EraReviewed bygaryldibertVote: 10/10
My husband and I stumbled on this movie late one night on our tv. We decided to watch it because we liked the other 2 Billy Jack movies and were hoping we would like this one too -- we didn't! We actually stayed up till 2 am to watch it all the way to the end, hoping it would get better, because the tv guide gave it a 3-star rating. We thought the acting was awful, what little plot there was made no sense to us, we didn't care about the characters and we thought the dialog was pathetic. It wasn't even "so bad that it was funny" -- we just found it boring. Even though the acting wasn't all that much better in the other Billy Jack movies, they at least had cohesive plotlines with characters that we actually cared about (and one had a hit song, to boot!).
Born Losers (1967) was the first of the Billy Jack series. Like most films that are later "franchised", the first film is usually the best and this one is no exception. No pontificating or posturing, it's what Billy Jack does best, putting in work and taking names. Watch the townsfolk back off of Billy Jack because they know what he's capable of. This was before the silly b Freedom School nonsense. Born Losers is just a straight forward biker white exploitation film. No flowery signifying from Billy Jack, no sir. Too bad he went into a different direction with the latter films, padded out with nonsensical scenes and overlong running times. He could have revolutionized action films. But I'll have my memories and enjoy this one for what it's worth. Biker trash pulling Billy Jack's chain and watching them pay the price!
Followed by Billy Jack, Trial of Billy Jack and Billy Jack Goes to Washington. Fun stuff.
