"You are pretty crazy like a mad warrior."
Ah, a film that opens with the title card and then a 2-minute freeze frame of an explosion. My kind of movie! Rex (Willie Williams) is forced to fight against friends to the death in the "arena" (a small dirt patch surrounded by logs) to amuse scarface baddie Malzon. Rex escapes from the camp with his son but they are soon found and his son is killed before Rex is saved by Rhea. She takes him to Ophelos, a camp with fertile land and gun powder. Of course, Rex still wants to get back at Malzon because not only did he kill Rex's wife and son, but, as the final confrontation reveals, he killed Rex's dad too. Clocking it at a whopping 73 minutes, this is MAD MAX: BEYOND THUNDERDOME Philippines style! None of it makes much sense, like the lead villain going all crazy when the full moon is out (the production actually shows a non- full moon). It is pretty budget starved with the barren countryside representing the post-apocalypse world. The last ten minutes houses most of the action with some big explosions and a lightsaber duel from out of nowhere. The dubbing is great though.
