Trivia

The bulk of the film comes from a Roger Corman funded film called Welcome to Oblivion. That completed film received a limited theatrical release in the United States beginning in February 1990. However, the film was significantly re-edited and filled with footage from other Corman releases before being released to home video as Ultra Warrior in 1992. The original version Welcome to Oblivion has not been released on any home media. See more »

"It's alright to rip each other off. What we must never do is borrow from ourselves"*
21 March 2007 | by (Olympia, WA) – See all my reviews

And yet, with "Ultra Warrior" and a couple dozen other movies, Roger Corman has done just that. Ever since he invested a couple million dollars in "Battle Beyond the Stars" he's been making zero budget sci-fi and action movies re-using the same footage. "Ultra Warrior" is particularly bad, though, because the plot and all the exposition exists simply to hold together bits of other movies.

It is amusing, though. The plot involves this dude working for some big brother corporation in the future investigating mining a miracle mineral in an area controlled by mutants (and of course, evil mutant hunters) who eventually becomes "the chosen one". Every time two characters talk the film cuts away to "Lords of the Deep" or "Battle Beyond the Stars" to show us this giant fantastical plot that's supposedly going on at the same time. It's ridiculous, but that's why it's entertaining.

There are also two pretty good action sequences that were actually originally filmed for this movie, so it's worth watching even if you have seen all the source material.
