low budget;richly entertaining
Battle Truck aka Warlords of the 21st Century Now i remember seeing this film on late night television for the first time when i was around ten years old. I remember loving it then, mainly for the action and thinking the main character of Hunter was cool (he rode a kick-a** motorcycle). As i grew older i always remembered this movie and tried tracking a copy down to no avail. I always. Remembered the sweet title ; “warlords of the 21st century. Well to my surprise and great delight i found this title under a different title of “Battletruck”. I had to pick it up! Now i’ve read plenty of reviews who put this movie down. I honestly don’t know what else they would want or expect from a low budget action/sci-fi film. I’ve seen multi million dollar Hollywood films that were not as entertaining as this film. Its a highly entertaining good versus evil film, and it was just as magical and great as i remembered from my childhood. This is simply one mans opinion, I’m a huge nerd for independent films. All i can say is that if you too like me are a sap for low budget independent cinema you cannot go wrong with “Warlords of the 21st Century (aka Battletruck)”. Check it out, hope you enjoy!
Simple, but Effective
“Warlords of the 21st Century” aka “Battletruck” (as it is known to me) was a movie that I saw once when I was about eleven years old. It came on late night television and it left an extremely good impression on me.. Since then I’ve been trying to obtain the film on VHS for nearly eight years. It was so hard to get, even when I was in New Zealand I couldn’t get my hands on it, as it was only for rent and no one would sell it to me.
Seeing it again it didn’t give me the same rush as I was little, but still, it was very entertaining. This low budget “Mad Max”-like action flick is no blockbuster, nor is it surprising since the storyline is very straightforward.. But the battletruck itself looks scary, the music is a little creepy and the acting performances are good enough.. Great for an evening on the couch with some friends, IF you can get your hands on a copy..
