On this month’s episode, we’re taking a look back at 2000’s The Last Patrol (also known as The Last Warrior for its American release)! In this post-apocalyptic-esque story, Dolph Lundgren plays Nick Preston, a military captain who leads a small group of survivors across a California wasteland in the aftermath of a cataclysmic earthquake! Joining me to discuss this film is David Rosen, host of the Piecing It Together podcast! How exactly does an earthquake turn the state of California into a desert (one that looks oddly like Israel)? Could Lundgren’s band of survivors be one of the oddest teams ever assembled on film? In what ways were Lundgren and director Sheldon Lettich hampered by the film’s meager budget? And what exactly was the husband-wife writing/producing team going for when they conceptualized the screenplay? Join David and I as we embark on The Last Patrol!
Major thanks to director, Sheldon Lettich for taking the time to answer my questions! Also, thanks to David Rosen for joining me. Please check out his movie review podcast, Piecing It Together, as well as his website and Youtube channel!
