Bottom-of-the-barrel action fare and a clinic of cinematic mediocrity.
21 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is awful, even by Cirio H. Santiago standards and I've seen a lot of his work. When watching this painfully lame movie, it's quite obvious to the viewer, just how little care or effort (let alone passion or enthusiasm) was put into this sad and tepidly-paced attempt of an action movie. The films hero is a middle-aged, sword-swinging, David Carradine..... but temper any expectations you might have, because he looks and sounds completely bored with the movie and he no doubt just showed up to get paid.

Just to cover some of the films short-comings (and there are many), you have the indifferent and uninspired direction of Cirio H. Santiago (he put more effort into his earlier PAW films, one strongly gets the since he was just bored while making this movie). The acting is mostly lame and flat, with some occasional over-the-top moments. The film's dialogue is remarkably boring and cliché-ridden and generally delivered with zero enthusiasm. And lastly the sets in this movie are insanely cheap looking, even for Cirio H. Santiago standards, which is really saying something. On several occasions I could plainly see the flimsy, paper-thin set's shake from the concussion of the pyro-charges during the film's action scenes.

I won't waste time explaining the plot, it's just not worth mentioning. There's precious little in the way of vehicular stunts (most, if not all good PAW flicks have those types of stunts), even the gun fire and explosions sound weak and muffled, the film's soundtrack is modestly effective - but generic as hell. As I said Santiago's earlier PAW films are noticeably better, especially WHEELS OF FIRE! However by 1990 when this crap-heap was made, Cirio H. Santiago must have been bored out-of-his-mind with these types of films.

From experience I can say that Dune Warriors is the kind of movie that literally saps your energy, as you sit waiting and wishing for it to be over with and any semblance of a good mood you might of been in, has long since soured due to sheer boredom and disappointment. I hated every minute of Dune Warrior's and I was lucky enough to see to see the "Director's Cut" which is even longer and more boring. Having seen lot's of movies of this type, I can say with confidence, that NO ONE should waste their time or money on this absolute dud of a movie. Dune Warriors flat out sucks!

From what I've seen of his work from this time period, it's pretty obvious at this point, that Carradine was a middle-aged burn-out and was simply making a living, ambling from one lame, low-budget, production to the next - in a state of chronic mediocrity. Not unlike Bela Lugosi decades earlier, Carradine seemed to except ANY script that was handed to him. What other conclusion's can one draw. If you've seen Future Force and it's sequel (or several others from that time) that only strengthens my point. Sad to say, but Future Force is actually a slight up-grade from this movie...... just plain pitiful.
