Storyline

In one of many unpopular and unsupported policy decisions, the US government of the near future outlaws vehicle petrol in an effort to curb the overuse of limited natural resources - except, of course, for official purposes. There are many renegades who oppose the authorities, and will stop at nothing to allow themselves the freedom of burning around the countryside. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Announcer on Radio: Meanwhile, in a speech to Congress today, the President deplored the actions of the ten states which have voted to allot oil and gasoline supplies to citizens in defiance of federal orders. He declared that any return to the use of petroleum supplies for, in his words, "privileged personal purposes" would constitute a threat to national security.

Psychological futuristic piece with great upside
17 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that even if you don't agree with the concept, the director does a splendid job of making you think, much like "Unforgiven", in which you are compelled to side with a "murderer or women and children". Here, you are compelled to side with self righteous mechanics of the future. This is extremely difficult since mechanics pretty well control America today. But the writing and directing is very clever. In the future, the government controls gas and motor vehicles. One young man is part of a small family type group that rebels against this and has their own vehicles. He agrees with the government. The girl he is interested in, insists otherwise. Meanwhile, McClure has the catalyst role. He leads some soldiers in the area who are responsible for keeping the regulations. One of the soldiers is an extremely macabre, deranged man. Here again, the film is cleverly drawn to show how the truly dangerous and deranged men are often not the ones who paint their faces, but rather pulling strings. Unlike other movies in this genre, the action is very realistic, and the people react in a way that doesn't make you roll your eyes. They are human and make mistakes. No comically choreographed fight scenes here. This is both a thinking man's piece, and a movie with action. The characters present an upside. One of the best movies of this genre.
