Plot:

During the Third World War, the American government initiates a secret project code-named “Army Bacon” in order to create a super-soldier by breeding human beings with pigs.

Twenty-five years later, a breed called “Muzzles” occupy the top of the food chain, eating and farming humans like animals. Rob Justice is an ex-bounty hunter working for the last line of human resistance – a group of survivors hiding in a nuclear bunker deep underground. His mission is to find out how muzzles came to power and destroy them…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

Bullets of Justice is enjoyable even if it isn’t particularly cohesive. The storyline gets completely buried in the craziness and the film does its best to shock you […] The action is impressive and I certainly laughed plenty throughout the film but is it a great film? Not really but there are worse ways to pass 76 minutes.” Entertainment Focus

” …for 50% of it, Bullets of Justice is one of the most impressive gonzo action movies you’ll see today. There’s very little of worth past the first half (certainly not its middle finger of an ending) but its action sequences are so good that it’s worth powering through everything else just for that. If you can stomach it, that is.” Horror DNA

” …apparently intended as the pilot of a TV series (!), it has a certain pastiche comedy edge, but lacks the sweetness of Six-String Samurai or Turbo Kid (both of which it echoes slightly) as it tries to be a porcine spin on the well-remembered Frogtown pictures […] It’s still a pretty thin pitch for cultdom.” The Kim Newman Web Site

” …there’s somewhat of a language barrier and then it seems like there were a lot more ideas and plot threads that the budget would allow and it takes some filling in of the gaps to make sense of this story – which means ultimately each audience member is bound to create their own tale and their own spin on what they’ve seen.” Nerdly

” …guarantees Lynchian laughs aplenty for the keyed-in viewer ready to go along on this rough ride. There is nothing else out there that is quite as, well, out there as this rambunctiously paced and crazily stylised midnight movie – and its final sequence pulls the rug from under so much balls-to-the-wall genre posturing.” Projected Figures
