Audience Reviews for Steel Dawn
The post-apocalyptic incarnation of Road House. While it's not as fun or innately campy, it's just worth watching for the crazy costumes and characters. Patrick Swayze embodies the nomad lifestyle, a drifter that only cares about himself and has no ties to anyone. However, Kasha and her son make his heart strong and he begins to fight for a cause. While this is no doubt the poor man's Road Warrior in every way possible, it's just so honest and straight-forward in what it gives you.
Why does being a great warrior always involve doing hand stands? Both Yoda and Swayze are ga ga for them.
Despite the entire concept of this film is a bit daft, the filmmaking itself isn't half bad.
Above average, but sometimes bore set in the post-apocalyptic future has martial arts warrior joining in to help widow protect a colony of peaceful settlers.
