George Miller totally ripped this off in "Fury Road"
16 May 2019 | by oulamiesSee all my reviews

Rage is an obscure entry in the Italian post-nuke sub-genre of exploitation cinema. This probably because beside its obviously cheap and primitive nature, it lacks the crucial, downright bizarre elements that many of its brethren, such as "2019: After the Fall of New York" (fascist death squads on horseback, underground midget society, scimitar wielding ape-men) possess, making them memorable. Rage just sort of does what it's expected to, not wasting time in establishing that, yes, here's the reluctant hero embarking on a perilous journey as a last bastion of hope to deliver mankind from the doom of extinction.

In other words he must find uranium. Isn't that the stuff that caused the destruction to begin with? Nevertheless, the film presently transposes into a plot that reminds me somewhat of the new Mad Max movie. The circle closes, eh? The action is not great, but you've seen worse, and the bad guy Slash is actually a pretty cool character! Most of the scenes throughout are done in what appears to be the same hectare and a half of desert, where motors roar and guns do most of the talking. Also tossed in are a few scantily clad babes, trigger happy as well, to enrich our viewing experience.

I'd recommend Rage to fans of the genre, accustomed to seeing this kind of film a dozen times already and still finding themselves coming back for more. The recommendation stands exclusive to this group.
