                         Americana Review
                  EQUALIZER 2000


Starring: Richard Norton , Corrine Wahl , Robert Patrick

Directed By: Cirio H Santiago



Copyright © 1986 Concorde Pictures

"Equalizer 2000 "is one of Richard Norton's early films. Made and released in 1986.The film is quite rare to find. Not released on DVD anywhere in the world,as far as i know.

It is a "Mad Max" type of story with the world covered with sand and rock after a nuclear war. The radiation has changed the world. Nothing is the same! The only thing that remains the same is mans lust for power! With a group called the "Ownership" an unrivaled military group. Controlling most of the land and the most treasured resource...oil. Richard plays Slade a high ranking officer in the group who is beaten and left for dead by a commander Lauton.

Slade swears revenge on Lauton(William Steis).With his search throughout the wastelands. He shoots and fights(filmed too fast to see any real style.)his way through gangland members. One group is lead by Robert Patrick from T2.Although i think this was  a learning movie for Robert in his career. Richard looks fantastic. He is in probably the best shape of his life in this film.

The film has plenty of action in it. More gun play than Martial arts fights. A small amount of romance is thrown in between Richard and a rebel leaders daughter(Corrine Wahl).Not to be missed is Richards assembly of a machine gun. With grenade launchers and who knows what else attached .

That will give the group who owns the gun unrivaled power over everybody else.

With low budget and low production costs. This film is only really for Richards true fans. His presence on screen is really the only thing that keeps the audience watching the movie. With  other faces from Richards other low budget film.

This film is a good watch if you like Mad Max type movies.Don't expect too much of Richard fighting his way through the enemy with his bare hands. Do expect Richard shooting his way through just about everything else.
