OPEN WARFARE





























WARRIOR OF THE LOST WORLD, d. David Worth (1983)


aka Mad Rider aka Vigilante of the Lost Earth aka Raiders of the Omega Year


This Italian production takes elements of Mad Max and The Warriors and supplements them with a wisecracking supersonic motorcycle and a rebellion against an Orwellian police state over seen by Donald Pleasence. It is not entirely successful in it goals, and limitations of both budget and artistry are evident. It ends in a singalong, and there are many small explosions.

I have a fondness for these cheap post-apocalyptic movies - or is it a weakness?
