Side note: This is popularly known as The Blood of Heroes, but the version I reviewed was technically the extended one called Salute of the Jugger.
I expected as much going into the film, given the fact that not only did cinematographer David Eggby work on the 1979 Mad Max, but the film's editor, Richard Francis-Bruce, also worked on Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.
