It's World War III, and whoever's winning, humankind seems to be losing
- and that's only accelerated when one side (which one is the name of the
blame game) tried to develop a super soldier by crossing humans with pigs.
The good news, the experiment succeeded beyond expectations, but the bad
news, the experiment succeeded beyond expectations, to an extent that the
crossbreed, called Muzzles, has since become the dominating race of the
planet, and they're feeding on humans. And so successful have the Muzzles
become that they have begun to keep humans in cages to forcefeed them. Of
course, they haven't captured all humans (yet), but are continually
roaming the wastelands for humans to feed on. Of course, humankind, united
against the bigger foe, has tried to stop the Muzzles via biochemical
warfare, but all they succeeded was making all creatures sterile, all but
the Muzzles' Queen Mother, who does her best to keep their numbers up.
However, now the humans have captured Benedict Asshole (Alexander
Ralfietta), one of the Queen Mother's confidants, and they're ... setting
him free again to have him via a secret tracker lead their top soldier Rob
(Timur Turisbekov) and his mustachioed stepsister Raksha to Queen Mother
herself. But nothing is as it seems in a world reigned by Muzzles as it
turns out there are many humans turning against their own kind, including
those Rob and Raksha trusted, plus Rob's old nemesis Rafael (Semir
Alkadi), the only man with a sexier ass than his own (that's the reason
for their feud, actually), seems to be seminal for an operation leading
Rob and Raksha, and as a consequence humankind as such, to their doom ...
fave Danny Trejo plays Rob and Raksha's foster dad, who gave her life
saving them when they were young.
Ok, the premise for Bullets
of Justice is silly as can be, the dialogue's very much on the
clichéed side of things, and the film has the feel of any number of 1980s
sci-fi/action epics, with Hell
Comes to Frogtown coming to mind the most readily - and all of
this seems to be purely intentional, and really is half of the movie's
charm with the other half being its rather insane sense of humour that
doesn't shy away from crossing the line to bad taste - repeatedly - and at
times just seems to push for silliness. But that said, this movie's still
more than just a nostalgic gag show, it's actually very well conceived,
with action and special effects at least on par with today's low budget
actioners, all of which falls together to a really fun ride.
