Storyline

Years after a mysterious plague has wiped out most of the adult population, the surviving children have grown up to form violent motorcycle gangs. Young Lee, tired of life on the farm, goes out in search of adventure and soon winds up in the middle of a war between a pair of rival gangs. Soon after Lee proves his worth and is accepted into one of the gangs, however, a new threat appears in the form of the evil Sunya Corporation, which wants to utilise the gangs for their own purposes. Can Lee lead his new-found friends to safety? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

How to make a post-apocalypse movie for $5.00...
19 July 2000 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Though I enjoy the post-apocalypse genre, even I'm hard pressed to mention anything that I liked in this dung heap. Well...some of the music wasn't bad, though it got repetitive eventually. The rest of the movie I was simply amazed at how lame the action and story were, and how cheap everything looked. This actually got released to theaters? Amazing. I hope James Earl Jones and Robby Benson only accepted their (tiny) roles for the money.

Maybe this is fun to watch in the MST3K version - but it's certainly a chore to watch in the original version.
