Low-budget, futuro Eurotrash of the best kind.
14 April 2003 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

Martino's cyborg movie is definitely one of the better exploitation flicks of it's kind. Daniel Greene makes a good beefcake hero roaming the well-photographed wasteland wasting the sleazy corporate villains. The dire dialog and rather slow pacing tend to work with this Italian B-movie shlocker rather well.
