Storyline

Dopo una guerra atomica il caos è piombato sulla terra e la legge della jungla ha preso il sopravvento. Nisus e Maida si incontrano quando il gruppo di cui fa parte Nisus, che si è dedicato a riportare la giustizia, la salva. I due decidono di andare verso sud dove finalmente si sta cercando di ricostruire in pace. Ma, dopo qualche anno, dopo la nascita della figlia Kezia, il posto viene attaccato. Sembra destino che non debbano mai trovare la pace. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Trivia

The ax originally cleaved Donald O'Brien's head, not his chest. However, Joe d'Amato and some others then thought that it was too rough and looked too realistic, and so they re-filmed the scene. A still from the original scene has survived. See more »

If you like this sort of thing...
7 March 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I found Texas Gladiators (the english version) to be an excellent source of entertainment, but only because it was a piece of purile rubbish. The fact it was made in 1982 only heightens my abhoration of the costumes, which if the words "typical 80's bad guy" do not sum up I don't know what does.

From big things like the absence of a script and/or plot to the little things like labeling a 44-gallon drum with the word "DINAMITE", this film (if we can call it such) made me glad one of my friends paid the rental fee.

Luckily we rented this video in the frame of mind of looking for the worst movie we could find, and I believe we attained that goal in renting Texas Gladiators.
