Plot:

Shot in 1983 but not released until 1985, this low-budget sci-fi adventure is set in a degenerate society sometime in the near future, with humans thrown back to the level of Neanderthals by nuclear war. Three astronauts, two men and a woman, are in charge of a space station armed with nuclear weapons when World War III erupts on earth. They remain in space to stay out of the conflagration but are forced to crash-land several months after the war has wiped out most of civilization. After the crash, one astronaut is killed, another is captured, and the third stays with the downed space station in a series of chase-and-capture scenes. Marauders have taken over a lawless world and the future looks bleak for everyone, even the remaining astronauts.

Review:
Also known as Defence Condtion 4, this odd little entry into the 1980's cycle of post-apocalyptic sci-fi films is modest but entertaining stuff for genre fans. Def-Con 4 has an interesting structure, starting as a claustrophobic drama between astronauts aboard a ship before returning to earth. The events of the second and third acts will be of a more familiar variety to genre fans but the script has an attentiveness to characterization and theme that helps it rise above many of its post-apocalyptic competitors. Paul Donovan's direction is solid if somewhat hampered by budgetary limitations. His action scenes are a bit lacking in visual pizzazz but he makes up for that with an ability to get good performances from his cast: Tim Choate makes a likeably atypical hero, Maury Chaykin brings a quiet intensity to his role as a pragmatic survivor and Kevin King lends an amusing cold-bloodedness and intelligence to his role as the youthful king of the wasteland. In short, Def-Con 4 is not as challenging or bracing as other post-apocalyptic efforts but its thoughtfulness and attention to small details pays off nicely, making it worth a look for genre buffs
