Warrior of the Lost World (1983) (part 3 of 6)

In another part of the field, Rider is fixing his bike while mumbling the usual “I don’t give a shit about your war” line you get from the hero in this sort of movie in the first act.

Fred and his levitating pal try to get him to change his mind (well, Levitating Mystic does; Fred just sort of stands there), saying that he has a destiny, and that’s why he was able to pass through the “sacred wall of illusion”.

God, if I was 13 years old watching this, I’d think it was the most awesome thing in history. Alas, I’m not, so it’s just sort of stupid now. Still kinda fun, though.

Levitating Mystic notes that only the pure in spirit can pass through the wall, which in light of the sullen douchebag in question, may indicate the wall needs some maintenance.

Rider scoffs at this as well, which prompts Fred to start in on him, telling him he’s been chosen, and making a King Arthur reference along the way. Yep, not only is this movie a rip-off of The Road Warrior, it wants to throw a little Star Wars into the mix as well.
