Product Description

A post-WW3 movie starring Rutger Hauer. A group of warriors roam the desert challenging the local gladiators to a violent sports contest, using a dog's head for a ball. Gruesome at times.

4.0 out of 5 stars A BRILLIANT SECOND RATE MOVIE 3 May 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Rutger Hauer at his moody best. Very much in the vein of the later Mad Max movies, or more appropriately the Don Johnson pre-cursor to all these, "A boy and his dog", the post-apocalypse world. All this, meets Rollerball or Deathrace 2000.
A film of harsh violence but a film with a heart.
It is not a great film, but if you watch this without pre-conceptions and with your cynisim in check, it is an enjoyable one to watch.
I was probably one of the handfull of people who actually saw this at the cinema, and I really enjoyed it.
I can heartily recomend this film, from someone rarely satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rutger Hauer at his best! 14 May 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The film is compulsive viewing. The story is based upon a band of renegade 'juggers' on walkabout, welcoming any challenge eventually fighting their way to the top and in a quest to achieve their own personal goals.
A Jugger is a participant in this future game which is a cross between American football and the fictious sport featured in the film rollerball. The film is set in the future, with the five combatents being all having a part to play though the focus is on Rutgers' character and the female lead played by Joan Chen ( who was the pretty chinese women in Firewalk with me ).
The combat/sport scenes are very realistic and slightly graphically violent but hey, thats what the film is about but the linking scenes inbetween the showpiece 'games' tell a story of ambition, sturbborness and also suggest a certain sadness.
Excellent film, enjoyable on many levels, highly recommended as an action film and also very meaningful.
In my personal opinion Rutger was an excellent lead ( ref, Blade Runner, The Hitcher, Flesh and Blood ) and I don't know why he hasn't been more successful. I would have thought he would have made a perfect Magneto in the X-men series.
Seriously, rent it, buy it but watch it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable and moving far future picture 27 Jun 2003
By Martin Turner HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Salute of the Jugger is a memorable and moving far future picture, set in a desert world that could very well be five hundred years after Mad Max.
Rutger Hauer is the leader of a sports team in the only game that the future world knows, called simply 'the game'. It's like a combination of rugby, roller ball and tag wrestling.
Joan Chen is a village girl whose ambition is to be a Jugger like Hauer, taking the place of the 'Quick' when Hauer's own team mate is injured.
Although Hauer's team play on the surface, the real game is played in the League, underground in the five cities. But Hauer has been exiled both from the League and from the Cities because of a misdemenour in his youth.
The powerful finale is reminiscent of the best sports movies you've ever seen — even better than Mean Machine.
This is an unusual, even unique film, which avoids almost all the cliches of science-fiction and creates its own territory. One to own and treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood Of Heroes or Salute Of The Jugger? 15 April 2007
Format:DVD
I recently purchased Blood Of Heroes on dvd to replace my copy of Salute Of The Jugger as they are basically the same film, or so I thought! In theory they are but for the shortend ending which isn't as good as the latter of the two. It's still a cracking post apocolyptic action movie, well worth a watch, but needs the final 8 minutes replacing!!

5.0 out of 5 stars 80's classic! 28 July 2005
Format:VHS Tape
This video got to me pretty quickly and in good condition, I saw this film years ago and have been after a copy for a while. Great brutal sports action film sees Joan Chen join Rutger Huaer and his juggers to challenge other teams to a savage no holds barred sport, where anything goes! You score by placing a dog skull on a stake in the other end of the pitch. After roaming from town to town they challenge the top league team... Great ending!
