Always remember to wear proper eye protection when you're wasting irreplaceable rockets blowing up a deserted village.

The safety glasses are a nice touch.

I considered renting this once just to see how bad it was, I expected something roughly SyFy channel level, but jesus this is even beyond my expectations.

This is the movie Fist of the North Star should have been. Also, why not blow a hole in the wall there you inconsiderate bastard.

"Sir? Which is harder to get in the post-apocalypse? A handy torch and someone willing to burn down a village, or a bunch of guided missiles?"

I'd forgotten how much influence "The Road Warrior" had on late 1980s/early 1990s post-apocalyptic movies.
Back then, we never even considered the idea of an Earth overrun by jungles or grasslands. Everything was going to be deserts.
Check out "Neon City". Michael Ironside and Creed from The Office in a bit part.
Although plenty of "future sucks" movie are set in city ruins or sterile dome, I think Waterworld was the first post-apoc movie I'd seen not set in a desert.
Yeah I think you're right. I'd say A Boy and His Dog and Wizards as preceding examples, but I saw Waterworld way before I saw those. I still want to get my Waterworld treasure map tattoo.
hmm.. come to think of it, I guess Boy and his Dog did meet the city ruins part of your argument, sort of.. it's been a while. Umm.. Planet of the Apes? I mean, they blew it up, but the book's a lot more ape-forward than the movie, almost like Logan's Run.

maybe a pushing the boundaries, but Silent Running is set in space, although it may ass well be a dome city.
