Storyline

In a post-apocalyptic New York City, a policeman infiltrates the Bronx Warriors, which has become a battleground for several murderous street gangs. It's the dead of night, and nobody at all is on the street. On the other side of the bridge, a Manhattan runaway, girl named Young Ann is attacked by a gang of street hockey players! These guys are on roller skates, dressed in fiberglass safety gear, and are wielding hockey sticks as weapons. They chase Young Ann into a dead end and surround her, but then they are themselves surrounded by a much tougher-looking gang who at least have the self-respect to ride motorcycles. In the middle of this chaos, gang leader Trash steps in to take care of her. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Moronic but entertaining Italian ripoff
30 July 2006 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Ever wanted to see an Italian action flick that manages to simultaneously ripoff "Escape From New York", "The Warriors", and "A Clockwork Orange"? Well, heres your chance. This stupidity in this film reaches near surrealist heights, but is an entertaining way to kill some time. The plot revolves around how the Bronx of the future has become a gang no-man's land. Ruling over it is Fred Williamson as The Ogre. Gang leader Trash gets wind of a police attempt to infiltrate the city to rescue the president's escaped daughter, who has decided to become Trash's girl. He also discovers the man heading the investigation was a former member of his gang.

Already, you're not expecting Shakespeare. This film is DUMB. I mean I feel as if I lost brain cells just watching it. The characters and the gangs are meant to be cool and intimidating in that "Warriors" style, but their bizarre costumes do nothing but cause giggles. I mean a gang of tap-dancers that dresses up like Alex's droogs from "Clockwork Orange" is meant to be taken seriously? Another memorably surreal moment takes place in a meeting on a beach. All the major gang leaders are there to discuss the problem, and pounding drums are heard on the soundtrack. However, due to the camera's zooming out, we see a drummer sitting on the beach providing the soundtrack to the film. I'm not even going to attempt to explain this.

As far as performances are concerned, the usually good and charismatic Vic Morrow and Fred Williamson seem to be only interested in picking up a paycheck. This can also explain Enzo G. Castellari, who is usually seen to be a more competent director. The screenplay is full of tough guy dialog that comes across as wimpy and unintentionally homo erotic. Also, the actor playing Trash has one of the most annoying effeminate voices ever for an action hero. Not to mention that goofy walk of his, which apparently made the actual bikers on the set become convulsed with laughter. The film is entertaining in spots, but due to long length drags occasionally. This film is good for a beer and movie night with some humorous buddies, but don't expect great art (or even a great cult film). (3/10)
