low budget;richly entertaining
21 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now i remember seeing this film on late night television for the first time when i was around ten years old. I remember loving it then, mainly for the action and thinking the main character of Hunter was cool (he rode a kick-a** motorcycle). As i grew older i always remembered this movie and tried tracking a copy down to no avail. I always. Remembered the sweet title ; "warlords of the 21st century. Well to my surprise and great delight i found this title under a different title of "Battletruck". I had to pick it up! Now i've read plenty of reviews who put this movie down. I honestly don't know what else they would want or expect from a low budget action/sci-fi film. I've seen multi million dollar Hollywood films that were not as entertaining as this film. Its a highly entertaining good versus evil film, and it was just as magical and great as i remembered from my childhood. This is simply one mans opinion, I'm a huge nerd for independent films. All i can say is that if you too like me are a sap for low budget independent cinema you cannot go wrong with "Warlords of the 21st Century (aka Battletruck)". Check it out, hope you enjoy!
