Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn is a 3-D film directed by Charles Band. It is set on a distant desert planet in the far future. However, the details of this setting might elude the viewer as they are only spelled-out in detail in the trailer. As an audience, we are thrown directly into the action, such as it is. The film, a sci-fi western heavily influenced by The Road Warrior, incudes long stretches of slow, poorly choreographed, automotive action. The main character, Dogen (Jeffrey Byron), a leather-clad, gravelly-voiced ranger (as if that means anything in this setting) drives around in an all-terrain vehicle looking for Jared-Syn. While Dogen’s vehicle might have looked cool in 1983, today it comes across as a car with an aluminum shell welded over the top of it. Along the way, he encounters mutant cyborgs led by a pre-Night Court Richard Moll, the beautiful miner Dhyana (Kelly Preston), glowing soul crystals, sand pits, dog-faced snakes, slow-moving monsters, murderous locals, and much more. Oh, so much more.
