Raiders of the Sun

Raiders of the Sun

This guy and his sweet flamethrower are not found in this film.

like every future,
it’s post-apocalyptic
and explodes a lot.


Note #1: There is almost an obscene number of mortar explosions in this movie. An average one explosion every ten seconds would be a conservative estimate. A great deal of this movie is just people running across rocky landscapes with big, harmless explosions happening a safe distance away. For a society where gunpowder has become more valuable than gold, they use it with curious frequency.

Note #2: This is another one from the team of noted Filipino director Cirio H. Santiago and “King of the Bs” Roger Corman. Angelfist! TNT Jackson! About a hundred other ones!

    Since when can a movie be in the tradition of Death Race 2000 AND Blade Runner? It’s like some kind of 80’s sci-fi inbreeding. The movie appears to have potential though: swinging on Tarzan ropes with shillelaghs? Awesome!
