Bryan Genesse chews up the scenery with relish & mustard as the villain, while Gary Daniels looks grimly annoyed as the protagonist (and somewhat gentler as the twin brother). He has a Dark Secret which is quite sad albeit handled clumsily. Scream queen Barbara Crampton has a decent turn as a scared but resilient woman. The action is really worth seeing at least once, with furious hand-to-hand fights that almost make you feel the punches. I gather the post-apocalyptic wasteland is supposed to be in America, but a mish-mash of accents and atmosphere leave it up in the air (turns out it was South Africa). I've seen worse.

Quite possible the worst movie ever, Cold Harvest involves unlikely plot twists, impossible story direction, and a cast that would be better suited for latin soap-operas. At points in the movie I and my family were able to quote what the characters were going to say without having ever seen the movie before, making it as mundane and boring as could possibly be. If you are incredibly bored and feel like wasting time and money, see this movie just for the pure fact that you will never see another movie that is worse. -DragonDeadite

"This has got to be one of Gary Daniels best movies. The story was okay, the acting average, but the action and martial arts was way above average! The only bad thing in this movie was Daniels western theme song which was so annoying. However the shootouts where great especially when Gary Daniels flipped off a wall shooting a guy behind him during the flip! So far I have never seen something like that even in Hong kong movies! So buy this movie for its great sound and great action. P.S. The end fight between Daniels and the villian is top notch!"
It's all about taste!

"Due to the nature of low budget films, some film directors do not get the opportunity to bring more to the screen and show the true potential of a film project;...Such is the case of "Cold Harvest", a low budget martial arts action thriller which attempts to combine the post-apocalyptic feel of "The Road Warrior" with elements of the old-western frontier and stylized martal arts action.
Because of under-average production quality, an underdeveloped storyline and script, under-average music, and poor acting from the extras and a few of the lead actors, "Cold Harvest" ultimately suffers from a lot of mediocrity, which leaves much of the film's true potential to be desired. Fortunately however, what saves the film from being almost unenjoyable is the much improved fight choreography and stuntwork that is desperately needed for western action cinema, combined with the efforts of stuntman and co-founder of the extreme martial arts stunt team "Alpha Stunts" Akihiro "Yuji" Noguchi, along with slick editing and great foley mixing, and the athletic talents of Gary Daniels and Bryan Genese.
If you don't mind watching a film with great action sequences despite the flaws that result from a low budget, then Cold Harvest will make a great addition to add to your collection.

"For you Gary Daniels fans this is a must see. This is probably the best movie he has in his filmology. You will not be disappointed with this one."
