The seventies threw up some really quirky sci-fi movies and this is a great example.
A young Don Johnson travels a post nuclear war wasteland with his telepathic and highly articulate side kick, a dog called "Blood".
Together they forage the ruins of society for tins of food and female companionship.
Using a beautiful young woman as bait Don Johnson is lured down into a very strange underground society who are desperate to replenish their gene pool.
The trap is set and you are in for a very funny black comedy.

I was born in '75 - I remember watching this as a teenager and even then, thinking it was excellent. I was admittedly developing a life-long taste for Sci-Fi, but it was also unlike anything I'd watched previously(Note: That was the early 90's; there are now many films based in a post-apocalyptic world [Go watch Threads!]).

Like several other films of the era: West-world, Logans Run, THX1138, Silent Running - the ideas and concepts presented are quite alien to our generally hum-drum lives; you can miss out by being overawed at the strangeness of the story world.

Vic is a young man trying to survive in the barren wasteland - all that is left of civilisation after multiple nuclear strikes have reduced the world to ashes. Among the shattered remains of humanity his companion is a dog: Blood. Blood and Vic are linked by a telepathic connection that allows them to communicate with each other. The film details their escapades: trying to find food and get Vic laid. There are plenty of regular horrors on the surface to avoid - but below ground there is very real danger too.

Having watched this again as an adult - I still think it is a great story and a great film. If you like films that are all wrapped up at the end, with a happy ending, then this film might not be for you. Also, if you like awesome special effects and non-stop action where zombies/aliens/badguys are mown down in a constant hail of bullets/laser-fire/plasma - give it a miss. It was made in 1975 and, from the looks of it, on a budget. Don't get me wrong - the effects are not bad - but it can't compete with the big-budget, all-action sci-fi that is available today.

It is a glimpse into a horrific might-have-been-future, through the eyes of someone desperate to survive. The ending is...novel - I defy anyone to see it coming!

I've met many people who love sci fi ...

Talk will usually lead to rollerball, westworld & logans run.

Suprisingly most have not seen or heard of A boy and his dog -
Which is a shame.

It's a post apocalyptic movie set after world war 4 ...
the vision is not disimilar to that of Mad Max ,Arid barren landscape.

It follows the boy & The dog who are an unlikely pair - this is brilliant the dog is telepathic and we hear dialogue between the two.

The dog (blood) Is a sorta world weary cynical charactor which I always find amusing.

The film has a brilliant ending as well.

Based on a Hugo award winning short story by the brilliant Harlan Ellison - it's a suprisingly faithful adaption.

The print is great/sharp - some scratches here and there - something I like as I watch through a projector - It adds to the cinematic vibe, you understand.

No extras.

To conclude ...
If you like films like Solvent green, Silent running and the above mentioned.

I would strongly recommend this modest little gem to you.

4/5

A Charming film about a young adult and his dog "Blood", the story takes place in the not to distant future 2024. After several wars the world is nothing more than a crumbling wasteland with no rules all except one under ground city. This film is essentially about Vic (Don Johnson) getting laid, so this isnt your ordinary Mad Max Survival action film. all in all 10/10 for a truly timeless classic

Format: DVD
This film is wonderfully goofy, strange, and sexy; the DVVD edition that I have is on the Slingshot label (release number SDVD-9818, as available in the Dominion of Canada and in the U. S. of A.). As in all of Don Johnson's earliest films (his more frequently buttocks- and bollocks-baring "The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart" and "The Harrad Experiment", especially), this actor, in appearance and personality, was winsomely, alluringly cute, and enticingly sensuous in bearing. Johnson's occasional nudity, or, more frequently, his near- or partial-nakedness in this film, amply show off such elegantly youthful assets, as then usual in his burgeoning cinematic career. Johnson's spunky manner was delightfully insouciant and irresistably, potently sexy. He really has been the main reason, over the years, for continuing to want to see and to treasure this peculiar movie.

The film gets rather grim at some points, but the surrealism of it all makes the viewer laugh as well as squirm a bit. Don Johnson did not flinch at anything that his scripts might demand at this early stage of his life in film; it helped that one of his assets was being so naturally exhibitionistic and playful by nature, revelling in his own boyish beauty and lithe atheleticism.

As for young Vic's canine companion and tutor, named Blood, whose pet-human, hunting boy, and pupil Vic happens to be, that wily and domineering animal is shaggy and, not surprisingly, his dawggy lips don't move with his dialogue. Not to worry. It's a telephathic kind of thing!

Jason Robards is weird and theatening, just the right guy for one of the villains in the film's post-nuclear underworld.

As science-fiction films go, this one is very original and offbeat! I cannot see this film often enough, and you might find that viewing it becomes addictive, too!
