Warriors of the Wasteland (1984)

You've seen Mad Max right? Well so did the makers of Warriors of the Wasteland. That's what this is, a dollar store version of the Mad Max movies from our friends in Italy.

Synopsis: After a nuclear holocaust the survivors fight for their lives against a deadly wasteland gang known as the Templars, as they search for any signs that civilization has endured someplace in the world. When a stranger comes out of the waste, he offers hope, and may be able to defeat the Templars once and for all.

This film goes under a lot of different names including Metropolis 2000 and The New Barbarians. You know this movie is actually pretty well done considering how cheaply it was made. I mean it is still a rip off of a big budget movie, but still not that bad.

There is one really WTF moment in this movie. You see our hero is captured by the leader of the bad guys, and he is all tied up and you think he is going to torture him. Well he does...in a way. The bad guy rapes our hero! I mean it's not like graphic, but you know what is going on. This is how my thought process went down: "What is he....is he....Ohhhhhhh ewww he is." I mean I don't remember Tina Turner corn holing Mad Max in Beyond Thunderdome. Course it was Tina Turner, so she might have. I think she did that to Mick Jagger.

Anyway....Warriors of the Wasteland gets a 4 out 5 on the cheese-o-meter.

Until next time, see you on the front line.



  1. I've always wanted to do a "watch movies from my birth year" sort of marathon. This would certainly work.

  2. I'll have to see if I have any more 84 movies in the vault for you then.
