Just a rehash of the Mad Maxx concept. Very colourful scenery.

The journey continues as I make my way through every single Jason Momoa film housed in the library catalogue.

In this one the Bearded Wonder Bro takes on the role of a man who dwells in a dystopian wasteland that not even a coyote could survive in. And yet he somehow manages to add on even more muscle mass...must be that free-range cannibalistic diet he's on.

Calling this film a love story is like calling "Silence of the Lambs" a delightful rom-com. That's stretching things past the point of believability. Just because the hatch-wielding Hawaiian with the bad Cuban accent does not eat you, it does not mean he loves you. It means he is not hungry...yet.

There are three things that you can take with you when you walk away from this one. And do yourself a favour, walk away. Very far away. Maybe even take it at a jog. Your brain cells will thank you.

1) Jason Momoa is most likely contractually obligated to be shirtless in a number of scenes in every film or television production he takes part in (When in front of the camera. I am not sure about what happens when he's behind one). This film is no different. Not that I am complaining. After all he always sports the most unique spray-on body art that requires a closer examination to take in all of that detailing.

2) There is a high chance that his shirts are stolen off set by rabid fan girls. This would not surprise me in the slightest. I have met this man in person. I can tell you that his shirts are incredibly soft and that he smells like the perfect combination of a sea-swept coconut and a majestic werewolf. I wonder what fabric softener he uses?

Which brings me to my last point...

3) Every day must be laundry day in the Momoa household.

That is all.

I have seen some twisted film in my time, but none were as entertaining and uniquely shot and scored as this one. The writer/director is really sharp and wields her artistic licence like a broad sword. Not for the faint of heart. You will either enjoy this immensely or hate it.

Big name actors, but no story. Gore for gore sake. The additional short film is just as bad. walk away from this one

A very bizarre love story!

I'm not really sure what to say about this very odd movie. I only got it because of Jason, he doesn't speak much but his shirt is off most of the time so I'm ok with that, you just have to look past the fact he's a cannibal.

I recommend putting the subtitles on and fast fwding through some of the slow parts. Can I recommend this film? Sure, it's not great but it's got a shirtless Jason Momoa.

This is not worth seeing; totally waste of your time. AWFUL plot and acting poor.

A romantic, technicolor fever-dream set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland featuring an at times, shirt-less Jason Momoa, toothless Jim Carrey, and a mustachioed Keanu Reeves as a creepy cult leader. Think Mad Max meets Venice Beach circa 1980's meets Burning Man. The musical score is fantastic. A great little film for those who love B grade post-apocalyptic odysseys and Jason Momoa.

A lot of mind bending drugs were taken during the making of this movie.

it seemed like a slow paced no action version of Mad Maxx
