Storyline

In the post-nuclear wastes of Earth two civilizations fight for survival. The Tyrogs, who dwell in the City of Doom, and the Drones, who live underground, free from the high levels of radiation brought about in The Cataclysm. Baktar, leader of the Tyrogs, has just had a child, but the radiation has caused the child to be born a mutant, so he sends Zerak (Lou Ferrigno), his right hand man, to find an unaffected woman. Racela, a beautiful Drone, has chosen the wrong time to venture out of the underground shelter, as Zerak finds and captures her for his leader. However, while guarding her in prison, Zerak falls for Racela and decides to leave the City of Doom with her. With the two groups about to go to war, Zerak must fight his way through his former allies to get Racela to safety. Shot on location in the Philippines, the sprawling landscapes provide for massive battles in this faced-paced science-fiction saga. The nuclear war is over but the fight for survival has just begun... Written by TheUnbeholden

Perfectly Awful!!!!
25 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is hands down the greatest film ever created. I spent nearly 4 years searching through bad movies attempting to find the worst (and subsequently the greatest) film ever made. Desert Warrior is the summation of that quest. I have seen literally thousands of the worst movies ever made, and Desert Warrior has risen to the top. The cream at the top of the sewage barrel. In case anyone is interested the #2 worst movie ever IMHO is Octaman. If you get a chance enjoy Octaman, it is truly a "gem". But always pay homage to the "Cullinan" of movies--- Desert Warrior! As a credit to it's greatness, I have watched Desert Warrior more than 30 times. I hope you are lucky enough to see it once.
