Who would have thought the the apocalypse could be that bad!
The future can be exciting or it can be scary. In "Damnation Alley", it can be interesting. Here you have two Air Force soldiers: 1st Lt. Jake Tanner (Jan-Michael Vincent) and Major Sam Denton (George Peppard, 1928-94) who are stationed at a missile silo in California. They set off a missile retaliation strike at some oncoming nuclear missiles which results in devastation. After the attack, radiation and mutation results. Following the aftermath, the two men decide to travel to Albany, New York to find radio transmission. They are set off on the trek in a Landmaster. These vehicles are very durable, especially in a spot called "Damnation Alley". On of the vehicles gets caught in a storm that kills an Airman ( Kip Niven). The other survivor joins the other two, goes to Las Vegas, meet another survivor and meets his end in Salt Lake City by some very hungry cockroaches. Throughout the travel, the encounters become more perilous after the other. And it's amazing that the Landmaster can travel on water as well. Interesting movie, a more interesting novel. It's fun once you take the time to understand it. 3 out of 5 stars
