Black marketers loot an abandoned Soviet bio-weapons lab in Siberia, releasing a weaponized strain of Small Pox which quickly turns into a global pandemic. The remaining 2%, who survive the 98% mortality rate suffer varying degrees of blindness, physical deformation, sterility and madness. Without any food source coming into the cities, what food stocks have not already been looted have been hoarded. With starvation threatening the plague survivors, they turn to cannibalism, preying upon each other. The unscarred Lionel Verney, by default, becomes the strongest man standing, competing for his existence against entire clans of diseased survivors among the ruins of what once was the 21st century.Written by
Kudos to the director for this attempt. The movie has many flaws, but I am accustomed to below par production in my line of work.
In the end I was very impressed with what the director managed to do with the money he had at his disposal. Yes, the acting was weak at times, but I've seen much worse. Yes, the lighting was sometimes off and there were sound issues. But overall the production quality is good enough to know whats happening and the story is engrossing with a no holds barred approach. The acting may have not been up to par to the script, but still I enjoyed every minute of this movie.
This film has many flaws but the 3,3 IMDb rating is ridiculous. At least this movie has a great story. Liked it much more than The Omega Man (with Charlton Heston) or I Am Omega (with Mark Dacascos).
People act like acting and top-notch production qualities is all that matters. I would tell these people that they are hooked on eye candy and that sometimes they should really put stuff into perspective.
Overall a decent 7 in my book. Two thumbs up.
