La Guerra del Fuoco - Ironmaster (1982)

Guerra del Fuoco - Ironmaster, La (1982, ITA/FRA) C-99m. * D: Umberto Lenzi. Starring Sam Pasco, Elvire Audray, George Eastman, Pamela Prati, Jacques Herlin, William Berger, Ottaviano Dell'Acqua. A caveman (Eastman) is cast out of his tribe after committing a crime, but returns with a sword after a volcanic eruption has shown him how to make metal. He becomes the leader of the tribe and a true tyrant, but young Pasco tries to overthrow him. Preposterous, cheap actioner, probably influenced by Annaud's GUERRE DU FEU (1981). Score by the de Angelis brothers is not bad, neither are some of the ape costumes. British video version was cut by 11 minutes. English title is simply IRONMASTER.
