Jax M. (Destructa) from SAN JOSE, CA
Reviewed on 1/15/2008...
I don't know where that guy on the cover came from, or the title for that matter, but this is bargain bin gold. This movie is much better than any other low-budget post-apocalypse flick I've seen. Narrow escapes, tragic deaths, and gritty atmosphere carry the viewer through a simple enough plot: Bandits roam the wasteland, terrorizing the settlements. A madman leads his army to conquer what's left of civilization, and a few brave soldiers seek out a way to keep the good guys in the fight.
I fully expected a tasteless spectacle of dumb characters, gratuitous nudity, bad effects, and groan-inducing dialogue. I was wrong on every count!

Great Cormania!
W. Gantt | Birmingham, Alabama United States | 01/26/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As presented by Roger Corman, the famous producer whose SciFi
epics have launched stellar Hollywood careers, "Raiders of The
Sun" on DVD allows current audiences the nostalgia of a return to the movies of the 1980s and '90s that were influenced by the success of "Mad Max" and "Road Warrior." Martial arts movie great Richard Norton proves to be a compelling hero in one of his early lead roles - demonstrating the charisma upon which he built his starring career in action films. Solid character actor William Steis shows up as a henchman. The plot has all the classic apocalyptic ingredients. We are treated to
generous doses of anarchy, insurrection, and ultimate salvation
from the dark forces who rule with an arsenal of explosives and
vehicular hardware. Typical of Corman's releases, the budget is
not so generous, but a reliance on emerging talent and film
makers - over high costs - is often part of the Corman formula
and always a part of the fun in seeing his movies again. Enjoy!"
