It gets very dark at night....
on 22 January 2014
Made at a time when these post apocalyptic movies were heading right down the pan, Salute of the Jugger, is one of those films I wanted to watch for a while, and, 22 years after its release, I get to see it, and be sorely disappointed.
I for one, we're expecting some sort of Mad Max meets Rollerball, with some fun chucked in for good measure.
What I got was a miserable bunch of injured people walking across the desert, with a little bit of Land Of Doom and Solarbabies thrown in.
It's not the casts fault, Hauer and Co are perfectly fine, it's just edited poorly, lit poorly, and so uninvolved, you really care less what happens to the 'rag tag' team.
Some people call this a cult movie, and a film for the ages, it's not, it's a cheap, miserable little film, with an okay performance from the cast and little else.
If you like maundering people walking across the desert chucking a skull on a stick,then welcome to the pleasure dome.
Otherwise, stick with Mad Max and Blind Fury.
