Well, as only I can manage to do, I missed an important link yesterday, but Joe Maddrey pointed it out to me, thankfully.
It’s a doozy too. The incomparable Outlaw Vern, at Then Fuck You, Jack: The Life and Art of Vern, yesterday reviewed Savage Dawn, a 1985 post-apocalyptic effort starring Lance Henriksen
SAVAGE DAWN is a post-apocalyptic-town-harassed-by-bikers movie very similar to STEEL FRONTIER except way crappier looking and without all the great cars and car stunts. I’d almost give it a very, very lenient semi-pass just because Lance Henriksen, with bleach blond hair, gets one of his rare leading man roles, except… no, I wouldn’t want anybody to think I sort of recommended this movie. The best thing I can say is I’ve seen worse…
…Henriksen plays Stryker, a mysterious veteran badass who has been away somewhere for a while and now came back for some reason. In my opinion you can tell that he’s cool because his name is Stryker. I don’t think there’s ever been a weenie named Stryker, only heroic warriors and villains. In this case it’s the heroic warrior.
Please read the whole piece. The impressive Vern never disappoints.
