I love all of Carpenter's work, even The Ward, but this...
This is just bizarre. It's not like the idea of a cannibal Mars western is bad in itself, but the execution is all over the place.
I remember seeing this as a kid, but now, I just can't hold my laughs. Everything, and I mean it - everything is messed up. The tone is semi-comical, the dialogue is randomly generated, the action is not great, the production feels like a cheap 80ties Italian Mad Max rip-off. The film also strongly reflects the things of the early 2000s - cheap nu-metal-like soundtrack, Marilyn Manson-lookalike villain...Ice Cube as an actor.
And the dissolves, man...the dissolves...
This still could've been a dark comedy or a parody, but the way it's handled...I can't make anything out of it.
