Noel Murray The Dissolve Exterminators is mostly a mediocre Road Warrior copy, with a few genuinely exciting chases punctuating long stretches that range from tedious to terrible. Rated: 2/5 Mar 10, 2015 Full Review John Beifuss Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) One of the Max-iest of the post-'Road Warrior' used-car-lots-of-the-apocalypse, the movie contains enough synthesizer-scored stuntwork, goofy plotting and odd dubbing ('Let's purloin that water!') to make it worthwhile for easily amused genre fans.

Audience Member In a post-apocalyptic world where disaster and shortage rule, water has become the new currency. Two heroes seek the water. One is a boy who is trying to help his people and the other a barbarian named Alien who seeks his own desires. This is an Italian Spanish movie filmed in the the same area as the spaghetti westerns with Clint Eastwood. It has adventure similar to the film Mad Max but lots of character development. It's a B movie at best but I love the acters and the story. Give it a watch and you may love it too, it's one of my favorites. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid Italian Max Mad ripoff has tons of tricked our car and motorcycle desert chases, along with some pretty good Road Warrior copycat costumes, which is fun, even if the action is nothing compared to George Miller's groundbreaking films. Instead of fuel, the survivors of this post apocalyptic hell are in search of water. Though lacking the massive production values of Kevin Coster's "Waterworld" or even Miller's "The Road Warrior," director Giuliano Carnimeo (billed as Jules Harrison) manages to infuse some decent thrills out of his minuscule budget and the corny script from the same writing team who brought you the equally silly "1990: The Bronx Warriors" and "The New Gladiators" (they also wrote the Lucio Fulci horror classics "Manhattan Baby" "The House by the Cemetary"). However, the film is hampered by lousy acting, a dull story, and terrible dubbing (though that does offer camp value). Also, the film takes a major nosedive in terms of pacing once the main character comes across a community of wastelanders. From there, it's a bunch of boring talk about how they can get more water and nothing much of interest. That is until the final's climactic road battle, which although nothing spectacular and plays out more like a demolition derby than a coherent action sequence is still a step above most low budget warriors of the wasteland films of this ilk. Overall, far from a classic, but solidly enjoyable if you enjoy this sort of disreputable film genre. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Total rip off of Road Warrior/Mad Max but still a fun watch. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member This is my favorite of the POST-NUKE movies: "The Boy With The Robot Arm" . . . I love how ALIEN played by Robert Janucci always tries to ditch The Boy With The Robot Arm "Tommy" played by Luca Venatini and Tommy won't "let go" of Alien because Tommy's father was killed by Crazy Bull during a reconnaissance mission to find water. Its a Road Warrior rip-off that has ALIEN, TRASH (Alicia Moro), and TOMMY: The Boy With The Robot Arm out trying to literally save the last vestige of Humanity from dehydration. ALIEN'S car is called THE EXTERMINATOR and when CRAZY BULL'S (Fernando Bilbao as Fred Harris) gang eventually shoot-out THE EXTERMINATOR'S tires, Trash presses a button and the tires re-inflate . . . I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Most people wouldn't really like it because its pretty shallow, but I love the themes in the storyline and the music by Detto Mariano Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Very fun Mad Max rip-off. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Of all the Road Warrior ripoffs that came out in the 80s... this is one of them. It's not really that bad. It's actually pretty interesting and misogynistic and cheap. Some of the action and stunts are REALLY good for an Italian rip-off. Still, it is a lot like the Mad Max movies. The villains look like they were taken right off the set of the Road Warrior (along with the cars) and most of the action is similar. But with The Road Warrior being one of my all-time favorite movies, I really had no problem sitting through this low budget movie. It's far from perfect and some may not enjoy it, but if you're into Italian rip-off movies (which there is basically an entire genre of) then you'll likely LOVE this movie. There's plenty of good action to keep one entertained. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
