I don't understand why it still hasn't been released on DVD, but when it is, I'll be one of the first to buy it for my collection. The 1970s LIVE on and into the 21st Century!!!
There too we have a post-nuclear theme, in which all life on Earth has been wiped off the face of the planet, only to leave a few "desperados" alive, both on board of a U.S. submarine and on the shores, somewhere near Australia (the last bastion of life... but for how long?).
There too, we have a signal emitted from somewhere, in the northern hemisphere...
Yet, despite all similarities, this movie is a kind of updated version, with fine actors at the helm (although not of the caliber of said actors above) and a very interesting story development.
The difference is that this is less a drama-oriented movie and more an action-adventure-thriller oriented working of the subject.
If one remembers the period in which this movie was made (late seventies), baring in mind that this was a time of overblown "super-spectacular" apocalyptic, "end-of-the-world"-like flics, such as "Earthquake", "The Towering Inferno" and "The Swarm" (probably the last and worst of such movies), one can say that this one differs considerably in both quality and story-development.
I personally like this little "what if" effort. No big special effects, except for some stock footage of nuclear explosions, some pyrotechnics and varied color flavors in the sky (supposed to represent the variations in the Earth's atmosphere).
Sometimes, for a movie to be good, you simply don't need millions, just simply a solid story and fine acting. This is certainly a film that makes you think and entertains at the same time.Read more ›
Getting to Albany won't be easy for the group; they'll have to brave the one hundred mile wide corridor between the radiation belts known as "Damnation Alley" Fortunately for the group Major Denton spent his time at the military installation constructing two armored plated Landmaster vehicles that will carry them across the desolate wasteland to Albany. Will the Landmasters make it through Damnation Alley? Are there really other survivors living in Albany? You'll have to buy your own copy to see how this post apocalyptic cult classic ends.
Like other fans of this 1977 cult classic, I've waited for "Damnation Alley" to finally be released on DVD and after watching it last night; I'm a little disappointed with the picture and sound quality. I really thought the picture and sound quality from Shout factory for this long awaited DVD release was going to be spectacular, but it isn't.
The video transfer for the most part is pretty decent, although the picture does suffer from some noticeable grain and embedded artifacts here and there; not bad enough to ruin the viewing experience. I'd rate the video transfer about 7/10 because it's apparent no real picture restoration was done by Shout other than the standard digital remastering process.Read more ›
If I didn't grab you with the first paragraph then you surely didn't live those years. Me, I was still a kid about junior high age. I thought Damnation Alley was pretty cool and also pretty limited. I always liked the landrover. Jan Michael Vincent was cool as heck, and so was that co-star from the Bad News Bears' movie. I'm not sure of his name. Anyway, I bought this movie on VHS about ten years ago. I remember that I thought it was a pretty bad movie. I judged it for plot and other reality based issues, like where did they get FUEL for this vehicle, drinking water, FOOD and of course, what about the NUCLEAR FALLOUT or RADIATION.Read more ›
