Storyline

The Plot In a post-apocalyptic American Frontier, a lone soldier fends off a brutal warmonger to rescue a girl fated as the savior of humanity. Our hero joins forces with a cynical veteran and a slimy thief to bring the girl to safety, encountering mysterious invaders and traveling showmen along the way. The Look Dust of War can be billed as a South Dakota flavored Mad Max, infused with the earthy textures of Dances With Wolves and the stark beauty of Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal. South Dakota's savagely beautiful landscape will serve as the perfect backdrop to a classic action-adventure picture. Written by Anonymous

Looked promising.....kinda
18 May 2014 | by tezcan66See all my reviews

I wasn't quite sure what to expect, perhaps a bit of MadMax mayhem, modernity and maybe even a plot. Sadly all were in short supply. The film starts on a promise of good things to come with a good slow pace and an urgent feeling of where am I. Halfway thru and to the end your still wondering. Its a real slog to try and get to grips with what is going on. In almost every scenario, this movie brings up many questions that never get answered. So a colony is living out in the desert? With no visible means to sustain themselves,? no water?, livestock? Although it seems rattle snake is a very popular dish or its the only dish. And when this very same village is being raped and plundered, in a nearby tent a group of little kiddies are having a tea party??? wtf??? The baddies are easily identified but you are not sure why they are the baddies. And just when you think you can join the dots, the plot over reaches in aspiration and falls to dust which is where most of the movie is based. As for the lead character Abel, my mouse pad is more animated ..i mean seriously, squinting and smoldering at everyone can only say so much.. Great cinematography and score but where this came from and where it wants to go..who knows or cares. Oh and as for the half medieval-half... what ever it is, seems it is part of the plot but again, what convolution it is.
