Firstly - the DVD cover is a bit misleading in relation to the film inside. I will ignore that and review the film as a standalone piece.
Did you ever sift through the bargain-bins at the back of a supermarket looking for something to spend your pocket money on? Robocop remakes, cheesy westerns and unknown badly dubbed Chinese kung-fu flicks: these were the staples of those bins.
They weren't high-budget, sometimes the English translations were way off, but they were fun to watch on a Saturday afternoon when you wanted to see something new! 'Deadman Apocalypse' is throwback to these films. A future earth made uninhabitable by its denizens, led the poor to dig tunnels for the rich under the surface. This subterranean maze is populated by would-be-kings, mad-men and people racing round on suped-up go-karts.
Sounds mad? Well it is. The cover (misleading!!) makes this seem like a fairly high budgeted film, which the film itself clearly isn't. The sets may seem a little shaky, and some of the props a little ropey but this movie pays homage to the over-the-top bonkers bargain-bin movies of the past.
The acting is not what you'd see in a Hollywood blockbuster but fits this style of movie well, with the younger actors doing a particularly good job.
Go in with your eyes open (ignoring the cover), suspend your belief, and enjoy a nostalgic blast from the B-Movie past. A fun short film to pass the time on your Saturday afternoon.
