After the MAD MAX movies made the postapocalypse THE place to be, dozens of cheapo producers jumped on the bandwagon with knockoffs. Some are kind of OK, some aren't.

At their best these ripoffs have a special exuberant recklessness that's hard to resist. The biggest budget line-item on WARRIOR OF THE LOST WORLD was probably for gasoline and matches but that's OK. With the utterly charmless Robert Ginty and Persis Khambatta, the bald lady from STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, who grew some hair for this movie.

You'll grow some hair too if you can make it through this barrage of demolition derby vehicles and implausible science. There's a truck known as the Megaweapon, if you're into that kind of thing. Even though great thespians Donald Pleasance and Fred Williamson pop in for a cup of coffee, the best actor honors go to Ginty's wisecracking computer Einstein who says things like "dickheads!" and "bad mothers!".

Originally known as EXECUTIONER OF THE LOST EARTH. (Lars)
