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>

Quotes

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. Meanwhile, in Des Moines, Iowa, terrorists carried out their second strike of the week at a U.S. Army fuel depot; this time escaping with...

Laughable Sci-Fi!
9 January 2001 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

Firebird 2015 A.D. is meant to be a futuristic yarn about a period in which cars are illegal and the government sends out hit men to blow up the cars that are still being illegally operated. Sounds like a decent premise but what really sinks this movie is the incredibly low budget. The whole thing was shot outdoors in the woods and in the country (which don't cost anything to rent of course) What's worse, this film only has about ten characters or so with speaking parts in the whole movie! It's like watching a TV western from the 1950s. The special effects are in short supply and pretty laughable on their own. Firebird 2015 AD at least is good for some unintentional laughs. If you look closely at the actors, you can clearly see the discomfort on their faces. Who can blame them?
