DVD review: Warriors of the Apocalypse (2009)
Warriors of the Apocalypse is written and directed by Len Kabasinski. The plot isn´t very complicated. After WWIII has devastated America, a small band of female warriors consisting of Luca (Darian Caine), Spring (Pamela Sutch), Vick (Amara Offhaus) and Carrie (Renee Porada) attempt to survive long enough to make it to the last city left. The problem is dictator Rollins (Debbie D) doesn't want her city overpopulating so she sends out her team of mercenaries to hunt and eliminate any "survivors" in the wastelands. The females, along with the help of Harris (Brian Anthony) a man out to avenge the death of his family, fight their way to the city combating mutated scavengers, wasteland renegades, and the city's own mercenaries along the way! We get tons of bad acting, ineptly made actionsequences, there are several scenes of close combat, apparently in the post apocalyptic USA everybody knows martial arts but these scenes are badly made and badly choreographed. The soundtrack is bad, there are several badly chosen songs (different heavy metal tracks) which feels missplaced. On the techniqal side I would like to mention that the camera work and editing leaves a lot to be desired. There is some gore in the film but it´s badly made and it´s mainly done by CGI. Warriors of the Apocalypse. The pacing is high but I kept watching the clock.
Rating: 0½ out of 7 I wouldn´t recommend Warriors of the Apocalypse to anybody, it´s a badly made flick with zero suspense and zero atmosphere.. Don´t waste your time on this one!
