If you are unable to get past the simple deterrent of the B-Movie label, then this film isn't for you. If you don't have a cheesy sense of humor, and find joy in what I consider alt. sci-fi (think Kilgore Trout or Phillip Jose Farmer) then this film is not for you. And if you are unable to remove the serious film buff that lies deep within you, then this film certainly is not for you.
However, if you do not fall into the above category, then count yourself amoungst the lucky. For World Gone Wild is nothing less then an addictive experience. You will be unable to resist the image of a cannibal standing on a heap of ancient crushed cars ressurected as a mettalic moat, drapped in a tattered american flag and singing along with a rock song using his machine gun as a guitar, or of Adam Ant leading a demonic cult of Charles Manson worshippers on a raid of pillage and rape from the one of the last surviving rural communities, or of a futuristic pot-smoking messiah self crucifying himself on a homemade pyre; from the explosion of humans to decapitation via deadly hubcaps, this film is defentiely a lost treasure.
And it is treasure at the films heart. The treasure of water in a post-nuclear war society ravaged by decades of drought and famine. In order to protect itself and its precious secret of an unending underground well from Ant's murderous cult, the community of Lost Wells hires a crew of rag-tag defenders in a final attempt to save man-kind. The resulting adventures and battle are both disgusting and hilarious, making this Seven Sumarai rip-off the best B film made to date. And defenitely worthy of a viewing, for nothing else than to witness the finest performances that Bruce Dern, Michael Pare, and Adam Ant ever delivered.

This movie is set in a Post Nuclear World in a village called Lost Wells. Lost Wells is unique because it has a constant supply of fresh water which is scarce in this Brave New World. The peaceful lives of the inhabitants of this village is soon disrupted by the arrival of Adam Ant and his murderous gang. So veteran actor Bruce Dern decides to take a ride unto the Big Smoke to find a few bad guys of his own. He is joined in his quest by Angie Banning, the school teacher played by the BEAUTIFUL Catherine Mary Stewart who alone makes this movie worth watching. Lots of violence, funny scenes and an big showdown. What more could you ask for?

I adore this movie. I want it on DvD so badly. I just wish they would release it!

As many of the other reviewers have said, it is not for movie snobs. It is for those who love a great cheese fest with memorable characters, snappy dialog ("These aren't the bad men; they are OUR bad men." -- though I may be slightly off...need to find out if I still own a working VHS machine...) and a camp plot that will never be entirely forgotten. I never looked at Adam Ant in quite the same way again...

Highly recommended for a good time.

This movie has something for everyone (over 13)! There is humor, there is death, there is war and hate. The bad guy (Adam Ant)is just as much eye-candy as the good guy (Michael Pare). The best part of the movie is Bruce Dern. A very talented actor with a sharp wit. I personally own two copies of this movie...just in case one tape breaks ;-)

i was suprisingly captivated by the intriguant that conceived this ironic and imaginative action thriller. the depth of characters, and dark humor places this film a cut above the rest. de facto, the father-less love child of tombstone meets mad max! if you can find it, watch it. high points: the unflappable performance of bruce dern as the consumate wise man, and the adroit dialog skills of writer jorge zamacona. typically violent as any film of this ilk and era, but clever,clever, clever.

It started out that I was only watching the movie to see Adam Ant...well, and Michael Pare. I found out that it was an incredible movie with an awesome cast of actors. I personally own two copies of this movie (worried that one might break eventually and I'd be stuck without this great movie). Bruce Dern is an incredible actor and pulls out all the stops. I'd recommend this movie to anyone who likes sci-fi, futuristic type movies...and even to thoughs who don't, but can appreciate a good bad guy.

I can't believe this movie has not reached cult classic status. Only people who enjoy this kind of weirdness would be able to give it 5 stars. This movie should not be so hard to find, and should be on dvd. Bruce Dern is a riot, as usual. Julius Carrey, Adam Ant, and Alan Autry were the perfect choices for their roles.
