There needs to be a name for this genre of post-apocalyptic genre mash-ups with ironic musical cues, retro sexuality, and post-modern self-awareness because, quite frankly, there are just too damn many. Down the pike comes another one, "Bounty Killer," adapted from an obscure comic book, a market that is producing more material for film than "Save The Cat." This one, which combines the aesthetics of westerns, futuristic wasteland actioners and mock-grindhouse cheesecake, is at least worth recommending due to a filmmaking team generally going for the jugular. Complete dedication to your idea doesn't outweigh vision and wit, but if you're ever watching at home, you might possibly not change the channel, which is apt considering how much this feels like a late night SyFy Channel offering.
