In the alien-western world of Oblivion, a suave, yet lethal bounty hunter named Sweeney arrives to arrest the seductive outlaw Lash on multiple charges, including murder. Lash, who just "inherited" a mine of Derconium (the most valuable mineral in the universe) from Crowley in a game of cards, meets up with Redeye's brother, Jaggar, who wants the mine for himself to rule the galaxy. It's a fight over Lash between the sheriff of Oblivion, Jaggar, and Sweeney. But who will emerge victorious? Written by
Very little plot, marginal acting, but better than Oblivion #1 .....
"Oblivion 2 Backlash" will never be mistaken for a good movie, yet there are obvious improvements over "Oblivion #1". First, the film moves along at a tolerable pace, as opposed to #1 which often dragged. Second, there are attempts at "black humor" in #2, some of which actually succeed. Third, more Musetta Vander, who is by far the most interesting character. Fourth, the cheesy cavern scenes are laughable, with the camera shaking to simulate a giant turtle emerging from his long buried hibernation. In summary, this movie can be enjoyed without even having seen the first "Oblivion", and is quite frankly better. Sort of the "cream of the crap." - MERK
