Storyline

In a future United States, the only transport available to an individual is public transportation. Predicated on an assertion that "the oil has run out", an increasingly totalitarian central government has ordered all personal vehicles be impounded by law. One man, a former race car driver, yearns again for his ability to choose his own roads and destiny. He reassembles his race car hidden from confiscation, and sets out for "Free California" which has broken away from the new regime, aided by a young technically savvy teen who feels alienated from this "social" society. Agents of the new government must stop this man at any cost to destroy the symbology he represents, and the instability that such a desire for personal autonomy could mean to the society. An old Korean War veteran and his F-86 Sabre jet are called into service to chase down this dangerous man, and end his flouting of the will of the state. In the words of one of the government agents, "People going where they want to,... Written by AGC

Quotes

Hawkins: What do you see there, Captain?
Captain J.G. Williams: I see a car and two people. Wow! Look at that... son of a bitch!
Hawkins: Much more than a car and two men.
Captain J.G. Williams: Well, that's all I can see.
Hawkins: This man's dangerous. This little joyride he's on is undermining the entire balance of this country.
Captain J.G. Williams: Sir, this is just one car... I mean, a little exhaust isn't going to upset the whole balance of the universe.
Hawkins: You are missing the metaphor.
Captain J.G. Williams: There's a meta-who?

Steve Austin and exploding cactii: need I say more?
22 June 1999 | by (Prince George, Canada) – See all my reviews

Seeing a movie like this gives me a feeling deep in my bowels that someday, I might become an action movie hero. This is an incredibly horrifying movie about the future that could be. I was compelled to watch this movie from front to end, hoping that somehow this movie could get cheesier, and my wishes came true. It is great to know that once an incredibly bad movie gets worse, that it comes out on top again as an entertaining vision of our fears as they were in the early-Eighties.
