Audience Reviews for Steel Frontier


This starts off with a good opening shot of a guy with his legs torn/cut off just showing bloody stumps...a very 'Verhoeven' style to it I must say and gets you all excited. A gloriously hammy tongue n cheek future distopian western with B-movie classic Brion James in his usual baddie role but looking alittle like his 'Fifth Element' character. Mix 'Mad Max' with most Clint Eastwood western classics and you get this, it looks cheap in places but not too bad in others and the gun fights are actually pretty neat in an over the top kinda way, plus there are actually some really good explosions including a massive demolition of a huge factory type chimney. The hero is a rip of Clint with his cigar's but also a slight precursor or copy of 'Jonah Hex' and 'Soloman Kane' in the looks department, whilst all the baddies are the usual 'Waterworld' 'Mad Max' style looking cannon fodder hehe Very cheesy but actually not too bad for a unknown film (never heard of it myself), hidden gem :)
