Endgame ★★★

Parts Road Warrior part The 10th Victim and maybe original Judge Dredd or X-men comics, Endgame mashes up and masticates post-apocalyptic ideas and spews them readily all over the place.

A punk gloom looms over post-WWIII wherever we are, ruthlessly guarded by Security Services (SS) gas-masked militia, killing the mutated and the impoverished and shilling “health” supplements.

For my money, Endgame is much more imaginative and eclectic than other Italian Mad Max knock-offs. Still, it’s 3 star movie with higher ideas and aspirations pumped through the pulpy action, deadly karate chops and all.

Though it’s a different subgenre indeed, Endgame might be a good double feature with Fulci’s Conquest.
