Mixture of The Warriors and Mad Max
18 July 2018 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I don't know anything about the director Mike P. Nelson except that he was clearly inspired by movies that I loved when I was young. There is no doubt in my mind that he was inspired by The Warriors (1979) from Walter Hill and by Mad Max (1979) from George Miller. By The Warriors for the narrating radio voice that warns about the different gangs operating in different sectors, and by Mad Max for the apocalyptic view of the world and the customized vehicles. I couldn't stop thinking about that while watching the movie and apparently I'm not the only one since I read another review thinking the same. I loved The Warriors, and I still do after all those years, so to me it was easy to like The Domestics, because in a way it brought back those memories. But The Domestics was just inspired by it, for the rest it's a totally different movie and story. I can get that people don't like it. Those people would probably not like The Warriors and Mad Max either. But if you did like those I'm sure you will like this one as well. The acting was certainly not bad for a so-called B-movie. I'm aware that the story doesn't make much logic sometimes but I was not expecting that either with this kind of post-apocalytic story. I's just a bit of easy entertainment, the kind I like everynow and then.
