D’Amatorama : a selection of trailer from Joe D’Amato films
Engdame – Bronx Lotta Finale (1983) directed Joe D’Amato. Original title : Endgame – Bronx Lotta Finale
Sarring Al Cliver (Warriors of the Year 2072, 2020 Texas Gladiators), Laura Gemser / Moira Chen (Black Emnanuele and 28 other Joe D’Amato’s films), George Eastman / Luigi Montefiori (about every post-apocalyptic movie ever made in Italy), Hal Yamanouchi (2019 After the Fall of New York, The Wolverine), Gordon Mitchell (Le Coup du parapluie)
In 2025, World War III has caused a nuclear holocaust. The United States is governed by a dictatorship. To entertain the masses, the totalitarian state has created the ENDGAME, where modern gladiators fight in televised duels to the death. Ron Sherman est le champion de cette arène moderne. He is recruited by Lilith, a beautiful mutant with telepathic abilities, to escort her and her companions out of the contaminated ruins of New York, and across the wasteland. Shannon gathers a crew of fearless fighters to protect the mutants and to face the many dangers they will encounter on the mission.
Endgame – Bronx Lotta Finale Endgame may be seen as a pound shop Mad Max / Escape From New York / Rollerball combo, but it’s also, in retrospect, rather compelling and prescient. It’s odd mixture of genres, sub-genres and exploitation tropes sets it apart from more obvious knock-offs that were endlessly churned out by Italy’s film industry during the 1980’s. Ironically, what was once very much the edge of film entertainment – that netherworld of horror, sci-fi, smut and exploitation – now very much resides in the mainstream, with many of today’s movies mixing the same outlandish elements with far superior budgets (but not necessarily greater results!) Post-apocalyptic fans have declared Endgame a must-see for the genre. The film was never released in HD, and not even on DVD in many countries (including France). Finally, restored form a brand new 4K scan, it can be seen in all its glory thanks to a proper Blu-ray / DVD combo, worthy of the expectations conjured by its cult artwork.
