In a post-apocalyptic scenario, a group of murderous zealots kill mother, kidnap son, and leave father for dead after shooting him multiple times. 17 years later, father is hunting this group for revenge.

Let me start by saying that this film is the creative offspring of Lukas J Culshaw (producer, co-writer) and an individual who calls himself Kantz (co-writer, director. This strikes me as pretentious and puts my teeth on edge right from the start.

This simple revenge tale - desert locations, small cast and crew, some martial arts setpieces - is the lowest of low budget films, But, for all that, it looks quite good: Michael McCants (I'm not going to play silly name games with him) has some ability behind the camera. The action sequences are quite well done.

The cast look good, especially the group of improbably attractive and erotically clad young Asian women. Regrettably, not a single one of them is capable of acting, in which endeavour they are not helped in the slightest by a script which would have made Olivier look like an amateur. There are also some distracting, pretentious and unhelpful touches in the editing.
