Movie Info

A feature-length pilot for a possible cable TV series, Deathlands: Homeward Bound was inspired by a series of novels and audio-books written by James Axler (actually a joint pseudonym, shared by several prominent science-fiction authors). Sort of a "Mad Max Meets the A-Team," the film is set in a post-apocalyptic future, where crime and destruction is the norm and law-and-order is in the hands of a few courageous mavericks. Vincent Spano stars as justice-fighter Ryan Cawdor, who travels the scorched countryside in his "SecWag," or military security wagon. Cawdor's hearty band of cohorts include his half-mutant girl, an angry Albino teenager, and a geeky weapons specialist called the Armorer. Not surprisingly, the original "Deathlands" book series was incredibly popular with long-distance truck drivers, presumably the audience to whom this ultra-macho thriller is geared. Deathlands: Homeward Bound debuted May 17, 2003, on the Sci-Fi Channel.

Audience Reviews for Deathlands

Having read many of the Deathlands books by James Axler I was appalled after only watching 20 minutes of this movie. I realize that many book movies need to be changed slightly in order to be properly rendered on the big screen but they just butchered this one. Many of the key points of the novels were just blatantly abandoned. The only things reminiscent of the books in this movie were the names and some of the background. Vincent Spano was pretty good at portraying Ryan Cawdor but seemed to lack something. Overall this movie on it's own would be a very bad sci-fi movie. The fact that they connect it with a decent series of novels is just a travesty. If it werent for the fact that you need to enter a score to review movies I wouldnt have rated it at all.
