The Ultimate Battle For Human Survival The Apocalypse has come: an asteroid has destroyed the world and civilization as we know it. Out of the rubble rises a new world order including humans and human-looking mutants with super-human powers. Parish (Lance Henriksen) is the leader of this new civilization and has declared war on all mutants, driven by his fanatical need for a Pure Human society, and his personal pursuit of Rage, the mutant leader. While the mutant freedom fighters rise up to confront Parish and his merciless soldiers, Parish continues his obsessive search for Rage. When Parish and Rage meet face to face, the dark secret of their past is finally revealed.

Summary: Moe's Review
Comment: Dream Worrior was'nt what I was expecting however it was'nt a real bad movie. Just you have to be a real fan of this kind of end of the world stuff. I am so many movies like this I find fall short for many. In fact if it was'nt for the cast of good actors I would even be disapointed. I feel it was worth watching.

Summary: Stay light years away from this movie
Comment: You're kidding right? This can't be real, I mean this movie can't actually exist because that means someone spent the money and time to create it and why would anyone do that? If only MST3K were still on the air, they would have had a field day with this fetid lump of manure.

It's a post-apocalyptic world where some people are born with special powers. The new world leader, Parrish, played by a somnambulant Lance Henriksen obviously daydreaming of the days when he could get real acting work, is trying to wipe them out so the race stays pure. There's some other bullcrap about a baby being born to fulfill a prophecy, but by the time that happens you'll already be bored stupid.

Summary: Stay away!
Comment: I like post-apocalyptic theme in computer games and movies, I really do. I dig b-graded stuff that many people call "horrid" and "not watchable" - if it deals with survival of human race after the whole world has been set on fire it usually is enough for me to be able to enjoy.. But I made a big mistake the day I purchased this dvd without reading any review. Must be a Mad Max clone, I thought. I was wrong, oh how I was wrong. There are no costumes, no barbaric weapons, no barren landscapes.. Script, actors' performance, director work - just plain horrible. Please read reviews below - and do not repeat the mistake I did when purchasing this piece of *beep*. My copy of this dvd goes straight to the trash can.

Comment: ...then you are going to love this movie!

Same as many others I was lured in by the spiked club-wielding, armor-plated lunatic on the front cover. It's obvious pride at being a B-Grade movie just fooled me into thinking it was going to be a fun little apocalyptic nightmarish movie. Well, the nightmare part was certainly true.

The only possible way you can you enjoy this movie is to watch it with some fellow Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans while getting drunk. By the end you won't be able to feel the pain that this puddle of monkey drool was designed to inflict on the movie-renting public. Seriously, let me lay this out for you:
the acting is bad, the sfx are done with Photoshop 4.0, the plot is indecipherable, and the sets establish new thresholds for "cheap" (only cost as much as a few citations for trespassing).

According to the future as told by this moview, there are few things the post-apocalyptic future has no shortage of (oh an asteriod hit Earth and apparently caused lots of green grass, trees, and blue skies to appear--yes awful I know)... I present these things to you in no particular order as a way of summarizing the plot in "Dream Warrior": white cotton thongs, gasoline, cheesy-motorcylces, vintage trucks, cardboard boxes, white facepaint, black eyeliner, trench-coats, scarves, makeshift pistol weapons, grenades, mobs of pasty, bored-looking extras, and women who want to sleep with Lance Henriksen.

Keeping in turn, here is the list of things that ARE in short supply in the future: ballistic weaponry, cars with doors, buildings with walls, men who can throw a punch, women who can act, plot, narrative, character development, and apparently also things that float.

Lance Henriksen obviously owed somebody some favors (perhaps the writer is his actual illegitimate child, you know like in the movie?). He is at least delivers the nasty tripe that are his assigned lines very well. Isaac Hayes is good but his character is basically random, inane, and confusing. Though admittedly after a few drinks he's the most awesome thing about this movie. His best move comes when he uses his "mutant power" (his sudden movements can make people flinch) on the goth people (the second most awesome thing about this movie).

Well bad plots, writing, lighting, sets, characters, stunts, special effects, endings, acting, and directing aside this moview was worth at least 1 star for the partial nudity and and the random yet satsifying inclusion of Isaac Hayes in the film.
