Haunting low-key Sci-Fi Spaghetti Western
8 June 1999 | by Jens-28See all my reviews

"Atolladero" (name of a small southern town) takes place in the middle of the 21st century where a few (very few) decent people are surrounded by loads of vile and corrupt men (on both sides of the law). One good cop wants to get out of this bleak and wretched place and of course everybody wants to hunt him down. The 150-year old (!) Judge controls everybody and his major evil henchman is Iggy Pop (in his biggest role to date - he's dubbed in Spanish, though). The pace of the movie recalls "Dead Man" and the few but neatly done computergraphics suits the film. Everybody's wearin' cool outfits - no futuristic fashion statements here. And no technocrap soundtrack; Iggy did the titlesong and the rest is pure Ennio Morricone influenced. This "Django meets Mad Max" tale is visually haunting and should not be missed even though the ending is a kind of a letdown.
