Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Around 1 hour 14 minutes, after Big Ape says he wants to stay with the fertile girl, there is a shot of the rest of the heroes which pans to a close-up of Shorty. Behind him, a crew member is moving out of frame inside or behind part of the car. See more »

Crazy Credits

The film's credits list this as an "Italo-Frenchy" co-production. See more »

Classic post apoc melodrama
20 December 1998 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

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.
