So the apocalypse has happened, and mankind faces new Dark Ages. There is one dictator guy, Prossor (Donald Pleasence), who's just plain evil and who's the leader of the Omegas, and then there's a good guy, McWayne (Harrison Muller sr), leader of the Elders ... who has unfortunately become captive of Prossor. There's of course also this bad-ass loner, only known as the Rider (Robert Ginty), who loves nobody but the onboard computer of his fancy motorbike. The Elders think in the Rider they have found their Chosen One, and they send him along with McWayne's daughter Nastasia (Persis Khambatta) to Prossor's headquarters to litterally save McWayne from execution. The two succeed, but when they get away with McWayne, Nastasia is wounded and the Rider has to leave her behind.

Of course, at first the Rider plays the hardened man who cannot be bothered with anything other than riding his beloved bike, least of all saving Nastasia from the tyrant, but ultimately, he does of course just that, leading McWayne and his men back into the lion's den, killing hordes of Omegas in the process. Eventually, they make it to Prossor's sanctuary, but when they want to kill him, they find out he has in the meantime brainwashed Nastasia, and she's quick to shoot (but not kill) the Rider, but when Prossor tells her to turn her weapon on her own dad, she turns it onto Prossor instead, blowing his brains out.

So of course, everything ends happily ... or does it? The Rider turns his back on McWayne and Nastasia (who has in the meantime dutifully fallen in love with him) to ride the plains some more with his motorbike. And Prossor - he hasn't died for real, Nastasia has only shot his android double ...

Genre fave Fred Williamson plays one of McWayne's henchmen who's really in league with Prossor though. Despite all of this, his contribution to the film's plot is minimal.

 

Very obviously made as a cash in on the then very popular movie Mad Max 2/Road Warrior, Warrior of the Lost World has not only got none of that movie's charm, it also hardly lives up to most other Road Warrior cash-ins - and not because it's so crappy (there are far crappier ones, actually), but because it feels just so sloppily and tiredly made. There is lots of action in this movie, but no tension, shoot-outs aplenty but no emotional involvement, chases but no (virtual) adrenaline shots. Everything is just presented as as-is, the directorial effort never goes beyond this. Add to this then that the budget of the movie was obviously very low, so regular street cars and motorbikes were equipped with spikes to double for futuristic vehicles, and a defintiely unthreatening quarry truck is supposed to pose as the "Megaweapon", and you're left with a slight feeling of what-the-fuck, but not in the so-bad-it's-good-way, just in the I-couldn't-care-less-way.

Rather a disappointment, really!
