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 »
As the ship takes off for Alpha Centauri at the end of the film, Parsifal and others are simply standing around on the ship without being strapped in. This is especially odd since the President has specifically referred to his inability to endure the g-forces during takeoff. See more »

Absolutely irresistible Italian variation on ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. The great, sadly failed, action star Michael Sopkiw as a man who must single-handedly save the continuation of the human race by finding the last fertile female alive. (Nuclear holocaust wiped out most of the rest of humanity and rendered all women infertile.) The plot was silly, but enjoyably campy. The budget was very low, but the lack of funding adds more than takes away in some cases as the bad special effects are quite fun to watch. Massively well directed and edited action scenes and some of the most entertaining music I've heard. Of all Martino's films, this is probably the easiest to appreciate. Truly a great, harmless, even lovable movie if you can look past its flaws.
