Right out of the gate, you can tell this is not the highest budget, big production movie of the year... but that's OK! Hollywood should take notice of little indie films like this that do a lot with very little.
The movie itself is a mishmash of Mad Max, survival wasteland and some chop-socky tossed in for flavour. If you can look past the low budget and the 'slightly' over the top acting, it really isn't a half-bad movie! Certainly entertained me more than 'Drive' which I watched earlier this evening.
Fans of cult films will certainly get a kick out of this (pun intended)and I hope the makers do more in the future. I think with a big studio behind them, they could really create something special.... maybe even the next Matrix or Saw, who knows?
