Whatever happened to Empire Of Ash one?
12 November 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In your typical post-apocalyptic drama, we have mutated survivors and men dressed in rags sparring off against each other. They drive around in big trucks, swear a lot and take orders from scantly clad ladies with massive fringes. If anybody is captured, they have the white blood cells and bone marrow literally sucked out of them to preserve the lives of the people at the top. The heroine is a young woman who goes on a journey to save her sister from this terrible fate. She is a bit handy with a gun, and picks up a mysterious hunk on the way, with whom she shares an obligatory sex scene (after the obligatory shower scene, of course). There is lots of bullets flying around, some very unconvincing explosions, plenty of incoherent dialogue and a mad preacher guy who baptizes, then kills you. Viewer gets bored around the hour mark, removes cassette from VCR and throws it across the room. Want to know the end? Waste your own time.. 2/10
