MST3K had a great time riffing this. The movie is very good material, and I think it's a real classic in it's genre(crappy low-budget Nineteen Eightyfour motorcycle Mad-Max ripoffs).
The movie is a great example of "so bad it's good". We have a lot of ridiculous action, which is good, since many movies like these try to have some sort of "story" which just takes time and bores you to insanity. Warrior throws that crap out of the window and concentrates on what's important.
There is a computer, Einstein(credited as "itself"), who wins the "Most annoying computer of all time"-prize without even trying. Seriously, I'd take HAL before this one. There's Ginty, referred to as "Paper Chase Guy", who is the best mumbler ever to play hero, and best of all, there's MEGAWEAPON, a huge truck with flamethrowers and spikes.
This movie is awful. But unlike Mad Max, it doesn't try to take itself seriously. It's good fun and a good MST3K episode. Watch it!
