Enjoyably cheap Mad Max rip-off that manages to establish an identity of its own.
Basic set-up: lone anti-hero protects the last remnants of civilization from the murderous mitts of a gang of psychotic (yet somewhat charismatic) would-be genocide artists named Templars. Some amusing B-movie level lines, plus some pretty impressive B-movie special effects (Templars exploding under crossbow fire - heheh ) held my attention for the running time. A pure 80s synth track proves the icing on the post-nuke mushroom cake. However the real point of stand-out in this film remains the abundance of futuristic (by 80s sci-fi standards) technology littered around the wasteland (the nuclear war takes place in 2010, nine years before the events depicted on screen). If you like trashy-yet-terrific sci-fi, post-apocalypse flicks or a good laugh, give this the once-over!
