“Four punk lads making a sortie into an amusement park where they antagonise customers and come upon a group of teenage girls. They are consistently thwarted by the apparition of the 'Knights Electric' who ultimately squire the girls away. Told with a remarkable fluency and gusto.” BFI Newsletter, August 1981
