Clash of the warlords (1985)

directed by:Willy Milan

cast:Anthony AlonzoJohnny MonteiroPaul Vance

Well…This is where words fail to represent the actual outcome of a movie.In this blog,I’ve pretty much written about each and every sort of movies.Bad movies,good movies,stupid movies,trashy movies e.t.c.Still the Filipino post-apocalypse action trash-orama entitled “Mad warrior” is a combination of all aforementioned adjectives.A trash extravaganza.Cinematic silliness and exploitative badness in superlative.

The surreal Synopsis of the movie,lo and behold…

World War 4 is over,yet the survival element in man still exists,however pitiful the existence may be.The game of life,to live,is embedded in all.The fights have started…to kill or be killed.The warlords have decreed that no man shall retain the right of life.Any human,apart from the soldiers of death,will be exterminated. Until…

One day a soldier deserts to join the “other side”.Vengeance strikes in the clash of the warlords…


This is plain freakin’ insane.The movie starts with a nuclear mushroom on freeze frame.The characters are cartoonish and the villain of the movie gets mutated every time the moon is full.Anyway the plot is absolutely irrelevant to the fact that the movie is a guilty pleasure.There are scenes and set-pieces that don’t make any sense and the dubbing is atrocious.

However,this movie isn’t just peaches and cream.It isn’t a perfect movie ,even in terms of trash cinema.Some moments are extremely difficult to sit through,especially due to the disjointed plot,but trash fans and post apocalypse completists will have a laugh or two…


Τι να πει κανείς για το “Clash of the warlords”

Λοιπόν…Ταινία made in Philippines,χώρα στην οποία άνθισε το τραγελαφικό war/action/exploitation κατά τη διάρκεια της δεκαετίας του ’80.Το παρόν πάντως αποτελεί μάλλον το μοναδικό δείγμα post apocalypse action που προήλθε από την Ασιατική χώρα.

H πλοκή αψηφά τη λογική.Όσοι από σας διαβάσατε τη σύνοψη της ταινίας στην παραπάνω αγγλόφωνη κριτική,παρακάμψτε την εγκεφαλική βλάβη που πάθατε και ψάξτε να βρείτε το φίλμ.Ένοχη απόλαυση.Ειδική μνεία πρέπει να γίνει στο dubbing το οποίο προσεγγίζει το μεγαλείο,χωρίς να το φτάνει βέβαια,του καρασκουπιδιού “Ζombie ’90:Extreme pestilence” του Andreas Schnaas.Oι φάνς του τράς θα προσκυνήσουν.
