So bad it's (almost) good!
7 March 2005 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Totally grotesque post-apocalyptic romp from (of all things)the french film industry ! This means action and suspense are replaced by "auteur" posturing and pretentious dialogue, mixed here with the same corny special effects and settings you can see in all the Italian Mad Max 2 - wannabes. Expatriate American director Robert Kramer, normally an appreciated moviemaker, here totally loses control of his film. Putrid dialogue, lackluster performances from a usually talented cast and a completely preposterous and incoherent plot make up for an ultra-camp movie experience. Whenever the french tried to do "science-fiction" or "fantasy", the result turned out to be a disaster, and this movie is no exception.
