Trivia

When Annie asks Petra about Ballard, Petra mentions that before he became a soldier, Ballard had been a Feral kid raised by nomads. An obvious nod to "Mad Max 2" which Brian Hannant was co-writer. The main protagonist Mad, a drifter befriends a boy called The Feral Kids. See more »

Woeful
26 December 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia.) – See all my reviews

This really is a very poor US/Australian sci fi film with Carrie Fisher in it. Bog average acting, dodgy script, plot and effects and token shots of the "outback" and a really dull set of bad guys (police and the laughable "Jen Deki") combine to make this a really obnoxious viewing experience. Dont bother unless you are really bored, arent paying for it and have absolutley nothing else to do (that includes scrubbing the grime from in between the tiles in your shower).
