Audience Reviews for Omega Doom
This came as part of a double feature with Blind Fury on DVD. While I liked it a bit more than Blind Fury, it moves a bit slowly, doesn't show enough of the "post-apocalyptic wasteland" mentioned in the synopsis, and has too few fight scenes to break up the monotony. The story has no human characters, and the humanity they try to infuse in the shallow robots falls flat. Hauer turns in his usual low-key performance.
This film's premise had promise but as you go on the story starts to make less and less sense. For example one of the Robots in the film has a "Water Bar" Why would a a Robot need to drink Water if it is non organic? Rutger Hauer and the actor who plaid "The Head" seem to be the only two actor's in this film who could act! This film feels like a really bad attempt at a Blade Runner sequel and fails on almost all levels!
The late 90s post apocalyptic direct-to-video approach to Yojimbo. It's pretty bad on a massive scale, not even bad enough to laugh at. Its only saving grave is the power of Hauer, which was lacking anyway. This was just a bad translation with none of the character counterparts making sense and there being literally no budget. Sadly, it's nothing like Kurosawa or Sergio Leone's previous movies.
