Critic Reviews for Damnation Alley
Slow moving, with cheesy visual effects and some nasty B-movie trappings. But the story and setting are both dreary and fascinating. And performances are top notch.
The world is damned...if not for Peppard, a momma tank, and his early A-Teamers.
Audience Reviews for Damnation Alley
Jack Smight's cheesy post apocalyptic road movie is a fun ride, it concerns five survivors of a nuclear holocaust who travel cross-country in "Landmaster' a specially-designed 12-wheeled armored all-terrain military vehicle, which is equipped with front and back cannons and twin overhead rocket launchers, they are searching for other survivors and settlements, along the way they will encounter giant scorpions, man-eating killer cockroaches, some murderous radioactive hillbillies, freak storms and floods with a sky that is a mass of swirling colors. Awful dialogue with some of the cheapest looking practical special effects you'll ever see. As for the cast which is led by the late George Peppard, who is a campy delight as by-the book officer, Major Eugene Denton, a wooden Jan-Michael Vincent as rebellious junior officer, the late Paul Winfield, in a good turn as Vincent's officer buddy, and Dominque Sanda as the token female eye candy member of the group. Overall an enjoyable guilty pleasure. Recommended.
Another of the countless 70's disaster movies. Cheesy, but fun.
Whatever it has laughably bad effects, that include giant scorpions that are the worst superimposition job I've ever seen. It's got a couple cool part, with flesh eating bugs and a group of dudes gone crazy in the aftermath and are hostile to the crew, but above all it doesn't really have anything that other films haven't done better. It did entertain me.
