Audience Reviews for Phoenix the Warrior


"Lets wait till nightfall, go in there, and kick some ass." That's probably the best B movie attack plan I've ever heard. That and more awaits you in She Wolves of the Wasteland. Have you ever wondered if after the apocalypse, mutants would gather in the desert and watch old reruns on their analog TVs? That answer is a definite YES! Also, sometimes all you need to run the earth is a box of gizmos and a room full of plastic drop cloths hanging from the ceiling. This movie has more missed bullets than all of WWII combined! I loved it's extremely poor acting and shoddy post apocalypse cars. The character names rocked too! Definitely watch this one.

Finally, after years and years of woman's rights groups protesting, women were finally given their own Mad Max type film to watch and bask in. Renegade women live in a post-apocalyptic world where there are no more men, but plenty of makeup, hairspray, and bullets. An evil witch (or something) rules over half the lands while another is inhibited by amazonian women (who do have one decent naked dancing under the waterfall scene). These two tribes battle it out for control over a woman (Peggy Sands, who is just awful in this film) that is pregnant with a male child. The good is Kathleen Kinmont (Halloween 4, Bride of Re-Animator) and the bad is Persis Khambatta (whose also bad in this). This film goes beyond campy exploitation at times into down-right awful territory, but I will give the film credit for appearing as though the budget was higher than it really was and for trying to pull off a story that must've sounded much better on paper. Silly, laughable, atrocious, yes. Worth a watch? Maybe...especially with beer and friends.

This was campy stupid fun. A nice entry in the "So Bad It's Good" category. I'm gonna watch it again with friends. I recommend it to folks who don't always have to have stuff be serious 100 percent of the time.
