Patrick Swayze stars in this post apocalyptic retelling of "Shane." The Bodhisattva plays Nomad, a nomad who wanders into a small community of farmers struggling to survive against the evil land baron, Anthony Zerbe. The film follows the story from "Shane" fairly close except for a general swap between the husband and wife figures, with Lisa Niemi as the leader of the farming community and Brion James as her partner. Most of these warrior-of-the-wasteland films are pretty awful, but this one is actually pretty good. Sure, it's low budget and corny, but it's fast paced, unpretentios and quite entertaining. This film is also unique among it Mad Max ripoff peers in that it embraced more of a "Conan" aesthetic, having the people of the wasteland fighting primarily with swords and not with guns or technology from the old world. In general, there really is very little evidence of the pre apocalyptic world and this wasteland seems more like something from an alien planet, which also makes it somewhat unique. This film also boats a score by "Mad Max" and "The Road Warrior" composer Brian May, which helps quite a bit. You also get perennial villain Christopher Neame, who seems to play Nazis a lot, and also John Fujioka and Arnold Vosloo in an early role. Overall, it's a silly bit of sci-fi, but quite enjoyable if you're in the right mood.
