Audience Reviews for Prison Planet (Badlanders)

The studio described Badlanders as "Mad Max meets American Gladiators". Mad Max meets a short bus would've been more fitting. There's a very solid argument to be made that this was originally a porno - it was one pizza guy and (or) plumber during the virgins scene away from fitting the bill - that ended up getting its steamy, erotic sex scenes replaced with a nonsensical, misguided stab at a plot. The acting and writing are certainly two valid points in defense of it. Full review at

It is cheaply made, but the money was enough to fill it with stupidity. After a writen introduction, two rebel agents are breaking into some building... it seems they are looking for some valuable piece of information... but they are just looking for a way of getting the guy into Prison Planet to find the old king of an opressed planet; the old king is key to help rebelion free the opressed planet, or something like that because is not very clear. From there they move to Prison Planet and start a sucession of clumsy dialogues, awful performances, pleanty of mistakes, and a terrible screenplay. The action that takes place does not make sense, just as the Prison Planet itself, and it just seems to be an excuse for very cheap-cheese action shoots.
