In the alien-western world of Oblivion, a suave, yet lethal bounty hunter named Sweeney arrives to arrest the seductive outlaw Lash on multiple charges, including murder. Lash, who just "inherited" a mine of Derconium (the most valuable mineral in the universe) from Crowley in a game of cards, meets up with Redeye's brother, Jaggar, who wants the mine for himself to rule the galaxy. It's a fight over Lash between the sheriff of Oblivion, Jaggar, and Sweeney. But who will emerge victorious? Written by spyguy88

Zack Stone: Mr. Gaunt, how do you advise someone when he has to make a difficult decision? They have two choices and they don't like either of them.
Gaunt, the undertaker: I tell them a third choice is always possible.
Zack Stone: Really!
Gaunt, the undertaker: Yes, and that's when I bring out the mahogany casket. It's pricier than a pine or a walnut, but it's worth it.

User Reviews

More of the same, but not much happens
2 July 2017 | by fig-75275See all my reviews

Oblivion 2: Backlash has a promising start but after Sweeney arrives it loses its way. It just isn't as entertaining as the original. Sweeney (and later Jaggar) are simply not as much fun as Redeye and Lash.

Miss Kitty and Mattie are in this one a bit more but we get less of Gaunt and even less of Buteo and Doc Valentine. It's quite short too, and that makes it feel like it is just another episode and not a stand-alone movie.
