Storyline

Bloodthirsty factions rule the barren earth. It's the 21st Century and a biological disaster has ruined the planet. Here, in a world where gunpowder is more valuable than gold, a few hundred survivors wage the final conflict for power and control. Yet among them rises a new warrior, destined to shape the aeons which will follow -- a man who stops at nothing to achieve his ends, and for whom courage is the only commodity. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

Yet another low budget post-nuke movie
17 June 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I've seen a number of low budget post-apocalypse movies, and the majority of them haven't been that good. I have also seen a number of movies directed by the prolific Filipino director Cirio H. Santiago, and the majority of them haven't been good. "Raiders of the Sun" is a Cirio H. Santiago post-apocalypse movie, and it's a bit better than average for both categories. The production values for the most part aren't bad, with sets and props that obviously took some time to build, and other attributes like dozens of extras. Also, some of the action sequences are fairly decent. However, the movie has some big problems. There isn't much of a story here, and even at just 80 minutes there is a lot of padding. Also, not much is given to flesh out Richard Norton's hero or the main bad guy. You shouldn't go out of your way to see this movie, but if you are finding it hard to find a better movie and this movie crosses your path, it'll help 80 minutes of your time pass by relatively painlessly.
