The New Barbarians

  • Film

Time Out says

The minestrone version of Mad Max 2. The new Barbarians rule the post-holocaust desert with a doddery death-cult philosophy, an inexhaustible arsenal, a fleet of tackily customised dune buggies, and a fetching SM wardrobe eventually explained away by the revelation that they're all gay. They kill Christians (a new Moses included) and rape our hero - an insipid automaton with all the charisma of Mel Gibson's big toe - before being blown away by Fred Williamson's exploding arrows, a wild child's slingshot, and our buggered road warrior's instrument of poetic revenge, a massive corkscrew up the rear. For aficionados of true dreck only.
