Like watching camel dung dry...
9 January 2004 | by (Slagelse, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Exceptionally dull post-apocalyptic effort from schlock director Deodato, stars ever-wooden Miles O'Keeffe (sporting another ridiculous hair-do) as Garrett, "The Lone Runner", a low-rent Mad Max on horseback, constantly out to free a princess (Savina Gersak) from the claws of greedy kidnappers, who are after her father's diamonds. Not much plot to get involved in, but a repetitive and mindless actioner with very little entertainment value. Huge disappointment from the director of "Cannibal Holocaust". It does, however, feature an outrageous performance by cult favorite John Steiner, acting like the errant offspring of Robbie Williams and Adam Ant.
