"Gangland" is a mindless post-apocalyptic action flick - but is it knowingly mindless? Generally it takes itself a bit too seriously, but there are times when it seems to be in on the joke (like the scene where a TV reporter is on the streets talking about the riots and the street gangs start chasing him, or the scene where a previously helpless blonde babe and the middle-aged doctor Tim Thomerson suddenly become kung-fu masters and take out a couple of guards!). The fighting - which of course is the No 1 matter of importance in a movie like this - is fair, though sometimes you can see the moves not making contact. Nevertheless, both Costas Mandylor and Sasha Mitchell have the necessary kickboxing background for their roles, and Kathleen Kinmont proves that she could still do action. Acting-wise, Mandylor fares best by keeping it low-key (at times he seems to be trying for a Stallone imitation), while Vincent Klyn fares worst by overplaying. I do have to give the film credit, though, for delivering at least one genuine shock (no need to say more, you'll understand if you see it). (**)
