Nightmaster (1987)


Australian action films don’t get much attention over here unless Mel Gibson is in them, so this mainly good picture is pretty obscure. It is set in the “future” but the only clues to this are the laptop computers in a school classroom and an early idea for DVD.

However, we know it is 1980s due to the music by a wannabe Billy Idol.

The story is a bit hokum but is delivered well and you are never quite sure where it is all leading, making it more an action-thriller.

Not too much dialogue keeps the pacing just about right.
