Doomsday has already happened and ravaged Mother Earth, so all we're
left with now is wastelands, with those unlucky enough to survive having
pretty much said good-bye to civilisation and fallen back into a
dog-eat-dog mentality to make it through the day. And that there are
weapons in abundance makes this a bloody mess.
Enter Rhyous (Brendan Guy
Murphy), a notorious loner who claims to care for nobody and takes no
shit, and all he wants to do is find Eden, the paradise, which might or
might not be a myth. But many are in his way, may they be humans or
cyborgs or something in between, and may they want to employ him or rob
him or kill him ... but Rhyous is having none of it, and he leaves a
bloody trail behind - which impresses Solek, a bumbling mercenary, enough
to become his sidekick, whether Rhyhous likes it or not. Later, when he
saves two girls (Kali Sherwood, Melanie Macy) from prostitution, he even
gets himself the closest to a partner he'll ever have in the girls' friend
Neve (Carol Cardenas), and she saves his ass more than once. But even so,
it seems that Rhyous' path is heading to utter disaster ...
ok, the plot of Wastelander might be a bit over-convoluted and
over-populated, maybe even a bit episodic - but the film steers through
these shortcomings remarkably well, presenting the audience with one
bloody action setpiece and gory shoot-out after another, without ever
running out of steam, and packing it all in very cool retro-futuristic
visuals, caught by fittingly nervous camerawork and enhanced by the film's
chosen colour-chart that looks fittingly off. And sure, Wastelander
is somewhat reminiscent of the Mad Max movies - which can be
said of most post-apocalycptic films since -, but on closer inspection
it's more of a very nihilistic Western, and works very nicely in that
Well worth a look!
