Storyline

In the alien-western world of Oblivion, a suave, yet lethal bounty hunter named Sweeney arrives to arrest the seductive outlaw Lash on multiple charges, including murder. Lash, who just "inherited" a mine of Derconium (the most valuable mineral in the universe) from Crowley in a game of cards, meets up with Redeye's brother, Jaggar, who wants the mine for himself to rule the galaxy. It's a fight over Lash between the sheriff of Oblivion, Jaggar, and Sweeney. But who will emerge victorious? Written by spyguy88

Quotes

Zack Stone: Now don't get me wrong. I have great respect for women like you and Miss Kitty who manage to maintain their dignity and their loneliness in a hellhole like Oblivion. I want you to know that I am here for you... as your Marshal, as your friend, or anything else you damn well need me to be.
Mattie Chase: Zack, I haven't had sex in three years.

Finally!
6 January 2007 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

Long time forgotten movie on my local Blockbuster. Heck, since the mid 90's this movie has been on the Horror shelf and sadly, as far as I know, nobody ever rented it.

I refused to rent it until I watched every single Horror movie on the shelf. Some were utter crap, some were decent. The time for "Backlash 2" came and boy, I regret for not renting it before!

I haven't seen the original "Oblivion" but this sequel is entertaining as hell and perfectly displays clichès from Western movies but in Full Moon's strange perspective. Yes, there's lot of futuristic action in the West. Some cheesy weapons but still impressive.

The acting is also weird but likable. A bunch of cowboys in the style of Metal Gear.

There's minimal Horror in this movie but still it should please a conventional Horror fan.

Musetta Vander (Queen Sindel from the second Mortal Kombat movie) is hilarious and very sexy! Extremely sexy I'd say. The story is entertaining and might keep you wondering "what the hell is going on?".

Give it a try if you are into Full Moon's campy sense of movie making.
