The weapons used by the white-suited guards of the 'American' government look exactly like the weapon the Jane Fonda used in Barbarella. (It even featured on some of the posters.) If they aren't the same props being recycled, then they are very faithful replicas. See more »

If you are reading this, you probably are interested in post-apocalyptic movies and you probably already seen movies like Mad Max and Escape From New York. It's not a secret that this movie was inspired by those films, but that doesn't mean it's bad. Actually I think if you liked those films, you'll like this one too. Maybe it's not that good, but it has more gangs, more colorful characters and much more action sequences (mayebe even better action sequences). Since Mad Max have already showed us what the future is going to be like, this movie gives us an opportunity to travel around a post-apocalyptic wastelands to get to know better this kind of world and to experience all sorts of adventures. There's all sorts of different characters like cyborgs, lonely wasteland warriors, infected people and many others. Like I already have mentioned, this movie has a lot of great action. There's some great car-chase scenes, which were surprisingly well made and looked very exiting. Also there was lot's of fighting scenes, with some great acrobatic tricks and the fighters sometimes used strange looking weapons, which cosed lots of blood and some chopped-off limbs. Shoot-outs were great too, only there was too little of them. The acting (if you care about the acting) was good, actually there was lots of great actors in this film, though not many of them are known today. So if you are fan of post-apocalyptic movies, you just have to watch this one.
