Deathlands wannabe Movie

"Being a huge Deathlands reader mark, I was extremely excited to finally see a Deathlands movie come out.
But alas, it failed miserably on so many areas.
Actually the actors who portrayed Ryan Cawdor and Krysty Wroth were good, and actually dressed and looked the part. The other ones who played Jak Lauren and J.B. Dix were terrible.
Even with a low budget, this easily could have been a classic B-movie post-holocaust action/adventure movie. It actually showed promise at times, but failed miserably at its very core. Too bad. This long running action series could still be made into a hot Hollywood production hit if it were made right. And it actually would not cost that much to produce.
But if you are not a harcore fan like myself, you might see it in a different light. As I can tell from some of the positive reviews here.

"If you are a fan of the Deathlands SciFi/Adventure novels penned by James Axler, then you are going to be reluctantly satisfied with this film. It is very low budget, but I am thankful that the powers that be even attempted to make a film adaptation of the Deathlands series. Yeah, it has lots of room for improvement, but at least it was made. Vincent Spanno did a great job as Ryan, and the rest of the cast was well received. The cinematography has a lot to be desired, and the lighting in particular throughout the film was poor. The red filter used for the outdoor shots was extremely annoying. Yes I know they were trying to visually convey the radioactive skyline, but it really took my attention away from the story. The script was well done, and the acting above par. As a 20 year +/- fan of the Deathlands series, I give it a 4 outta 5 star rating. Thanks SciFi for finally releasing this on DVD for the fans! SciFi Channel rocks!"

"I've read this book and many more in the series. I don't know why others in the series have not been made into movies. This movie followed the book somewhat but lacked the fire of the book. The movie was slow and rather bland. If you have a choice buy the book and not the movie."

"This is the bottom of the barrel for "B" movies. It doesn't come close
to the acutal book by Axler. Whoever wrote the screenplay should find
another occupation. None of the actors come close to representing what
the lead characters actually look like or act like their respective
characters in Axler's Deathland series."
