Post Apoc flavoured Kiwis.. mmmmmmm
5 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Loved Battletruck. Awesome movie.. very watchable again and again. Its got a really gritty post apocalyptic feel to it and i think its just as good as Mad Max 1 and 2 and BETTER than Thunderdome. The opening sequence with the radio announcer and the smoke in the picture is great.. so simple.. but very effective.

What i will say in the way of criticism is that there is no need for the filmmakers to pretend this is shot in the states... The American accents from the NZ actors are awful for starters ("Gaaad Daayyum") and then there's the fact that the film obviously does not take place in the US (right hand drive, the NZ mountain ranges) NZ is great.. show it off !
