This high-camp, independent fantasy adventure mixes elements of comic books, Westerns, post-apocalyptic science fiction (particularly The Road Warrior (1981)), chop-sockey action films, Elvis Presley musicals, and road pictures into a postmodern stew. Jeffrey Falcon is Buddy, a samurai guitar player wandering through a dystopian, alternate-reality America. In 1957, the Russians dropped nuclear bombs on the country, which is now mostly a barren wasteland of sand dunes, save for "Lost Vegas," which has become the new U.S. capitol and the residence of Elvis, who is now quite literally the King. News arrives that Elvis has died, and Buddy sets out for the City of Sin to take the ruler's place, accompanied by a mute kid (Justin McGuire). Along the way, the pair will face numerous villains, including Death (Stephane Gauger) and his trio of archers, as well as cannibals, mutants and three lethal bowlers. ~ Karl Williams, All Movie Guide

As I was watching this movie, I kept thinking: this is a very clever idea, they're quoting all the right movies (from "Once Upon a Time in China" and "Beyond Thunderdome" to "American Graffiti"), the star has decent kung fu moves, but the dialog (seemingly improvised) and editing are so sub-standard that it is impossible to enjoy it. Someone ought to remake it with a decent cast, script, and fight choreography that provides passable villians. Then I saw in the credits that this WAS a remake of a short film. I would have thought they'd have done better the second time around.

Totally flips out. by MLouv July 11, 2002 - 1:03 PM PDT

Despite the strange voice dubbing, this is one of my favorite movies of all time. Seeing death wail on a guitar is timeless. I'm assuming this is the single biggest influence on
