For Italian post-apocalyptic die hards only
18 June 2009 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Three scientists are in their underground lab when WWIII goes down. They make it to the surface and, after 8 short hours (yes, 8 hours), mankind has already broken down into a ROAD WARRIOR do-or-die landscape. Brad (Italian Bruno Bilotta billed as Karl Landgren) is the only scientist to survive and soon finds himself battling a mutant gang (led by THE BRONX EXECUTIONER's Alex Vitale). These mutants are so ineffective in that they fall asleep when the sun sets.

Believe it or not, this is the second film I've seen in the past few weeks that borrows footage from THE FINAL EXECUTIONER. Boy, those Italians sure do cannibalize their young. Thankfully, Woody Strode is given a pass in favor of random scenes involving a motorcycle chase and a fight over canned goods. If I see that footage one more time, I might start my own nuclear war. There isn't really much going on here outside of the obligatory chases in a rock quarry. Vitale wears the exact same post-apocalypse chic outfit he wears in BRONX from a few years later. Director Giuseppe Vari did most of his work in the late 60s/early 70s with gladiator and spaghetti western efforts. He bowed out of the film industry with this masterpiece. Also features the wonderfully named Bjorn Hammer.
