Alternate Versions

Contrary to popular belief the film was never cut by the BBFC for either cinema or video. However the video was slightly pre-edited by the distributors before submission and toned down the rape of Scorpion by One. The Vipco release is the full version and released in widescreen. See more »

Crash! Boom! Bang!!
23 November 2007 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Early 80's cult cinema – and particularly the Italian rip-off industry – made it look so easy to make a film. You only needed an idea that is crazy enough to sell (a fully written screenplay is an unnecessary option), a fairly large selection of grotesque costumes and flamboyant post-apocalyptic vehicles and, last but not least, a charismatic actor who was big in the 70's but desperately needed work in the 80's. Copy & paste all these elements together, add some cheesy Goblin tunes, and you've got yourself a genuine bona fide cult gem that is pretty bad but at the same time enormously entertaining. The year is once again 2019 (that appears to be a dangerous years, as Sergio Martino's "After the Fall of New York also takes place in 2019) and the world is badly recovering from a nuclear holocaust. There actually are only two groups of people left on the planet, namely petrified survivors who travel in caravans looking for remnants of civilization and the Templars; self-acclaimed prophets that dwell the wastelands and kill people for committing the crime of being alive. Then, finally, there are two lone warriors (and a ridiculously young blond mechanic) that courageously defend themselves against the Templars, yeah! "Warriors of the Wasteland" has no significant plot but at least it's never once boring thanks to an overload crazed battle sequences, vehicle-showdowns and silly gimmicks. The hero at one point wears a see-through bulletproof Plexiglas outfit, the blond kid goes around killing Templars with a slingshot and former Blaxploitation star Fred Williamson fires off arrows that explode upon impact. Williamson's character Nadir has a bit of an ego issue, as he clearly worships himself and continuously assures his buddy Scorpion that he is better than him, and the leader of the Templars (portrayed by the awesome exploitation star George Eastman) seemingly suffers from a slight personality crises. In other words, he's probably gay but doesn't realize it yet. Briefly summarized, "Warriors of the Wasteland" is a dumb but fast-paced "Mad Max" rip-off with a massive amount of cheesy showdown and explosions, in order words the ideal entertainment for undemanding 80's fans.
