Endgame (1983, Italy)

Endgame (1983) Theatrical PosterLet’s get right to it; is this movie the final installment of The Bronx Warriors trilogy that includes 1990: The Bronx Warriors and Escape from the Bronx, or not? The short answer in my opinion is no, it most definitely is not. It bears no resemblance, nor any connection to the previous films that I could detect; though it is supposedly set in New York, I don’t recall any reference to it in the dialogue.

“For an ENDGAME champion in the year 2025, there’s only one way to live. Dangerously.”

Kim Newman's Video Dungeon (February 2010)

It’s retro month in Kim Newman’s Video Dungeon. One the highlights from his selection this month is the 80’s flick Night of the Comet involving valley girl, Catherine Mary Stewart, fighting off zombies and mad scientists between shopping trips to the mall. The [Region 1] DVD cover just set’s the film up perfectly, with zombies, uzi’s and shopping. What more could a girl want?

Also in his pick from the 80’s comes three futuristic films (set in the 1990s!) from Enzo G. Castellari: The Bronx Warriors, Escape from the Bronx and The New Barbarians.

“It was the last thing on earth they ever expected.”
