In the year 2025, a horrible nuclear holocaust during World War III has left New York City, among others, irradiated and decrepit, but not abandoned. The city, now a poverty-stricken hellhole, is inhabited by brutish packs of scavengers and telepathically-linked mutants, who are violently persecuted by a prejudiced Úlite. Keeping the people at bay is a reality television program called ENDGAME, where hunters and gladiators fight to the death. The film tells the story of Endgame veteran Ron Shannon, as he assembles a team to take a group of mutants, led by Lilith, to escape to safety through the desert, avoiding such dangers as blind yet deadly monks, nomadic predators, machine gun-sporting government agents from New York, and Shannon's former-friend-turned-nemesis Karnak.
Well of course in an Italian post-apocalyptic film your going to see Modified cars, fierce fights to the death, Raiders, Mutants, and George Eastman.
Now the story is okay but it has everything you would like to see in a film like this. Well the acting is okay but there was a lot of dubbing involved for the Italian actors still okay. I always like Al cliver I thought he did well in this. Well designs for the sets and what not are kind of a let down normally you are suppose to see a wasteland but I think Joe D?Amato tried to make it look like a western as well has a Post-apocalyptic film. The special effects are good lots of explosions and random acts of murder to keep you entertained.
Here are some facts I found (Well not Meany)
Out of all the film Joe D? Amato made he like this one the most. (He made more then 150 films)
Shot on a budget of only 1 million.
But overall I can say my final verdict is recommended but if you have to see any Italian Post-apocalyptic film see 2019 after the fall of New York that?s always been my favorite.
