Michael Sopkiw is our hero for the day, the standard loner we get in this sort of movie. This time, his name is Parsifal and he ends up teaming up with a few random characters who serve mainly as cannon fodder but a few do stand out, mainly Big Ape (George Eastman), a huge pirate with a rather simian appearance. Eastman is great as usual, exuding his usual blend of charm and menace.
There really isn't much to talk about plot wise as it's pretty much wall to wall action and violence with some impressively gory footage here and there.
Director Sergio Martino does a fine job lensing things and happily, he knows exactly what sort of movie this is and doesn't waste our time with a "message". There's some good car chase stuff with the usual insane Italian stuntmen saying "Safety measures, hah!", a bit of humor here and there plus some oddness to go along with the cheap models and cheese.
After the Fall of New York is a fantastic piece of 80's cheese. Not too long (95 minutes is about the most a film like this should run so this is just at the limit) and full of action, it's one of the better Italian action films and a definite must-see.
