What it is: ROAD WARRIOR clone

It’s after the apocalypse. Water is scarce. People fight over it. Carnage ensues.

In this future world, water is scarce. So is meaningful dialogue. However, there are some things that aren’t scarce: guns, bullets, leatherware, short-shorts, motor vehicles of all sizes, gasoline, rocks, short snatches of imperative dialogue (“Let’s Go!”, “Move!”, “Stop Them!”, etc.), hair stylists, makeup, dwarfs (there’s a whole tribe of them), hoary cliches, and, by the end of the movie, dead bodies. I found this movie on a collection called “Grindhouse Experience Volume 2”; that should tell you volumes.

Let’s face it; some movies aren’t meant to be reviewed. They’re meant to either be a) not watched, or b) watched and quickly forgotten. Let the memory clearing begin!
