Storyline

In the post-nuclear wastes of Earth two civilizations fight for survival. The Tyrogs, who dwell in the City of Doom, and the Drones, who live underground, free from the high levels of radiation brought about in The Cataclysm. Baktar, leader of the Tyrogs, has just had a child, but the radiation has caused the child to be born a mutant, so he sends Zerak (Lou Ferrigno), his right hand man, to find an unaffected woman. Racela, a beautiful Drone, has chosen the wrong time to venture out of the underground shelter, as Zerak finds and captures her for his leader. However, while guarding her in prison, Zerak falls for Racela and decides to leave the City of Doom with her. With the two groups about to go to war, Zerak must fight his way through his former allies to get Racela to safety. Shot on location in the Philippines, the sprawling landscapes provide for massive battles in this faced-paced science-fiction saga. The nuclear war is over but the fight for survival has just begun... Written by TheUnbeholden

Oh my god..
24 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is probably the worst thing that I've ever seen. Yeah, I'll give some credit to Lou Ferrigno, I guess.. But the acting is horrible, the special effects make me want to punch a hole in my wall. I watched it over to my friends house because I had heard it was so cheesy that people in the room passed out from laughing so hard, but it made me more angry then humored. The storyline is senseless, and serves basically no purpose what so ever.

I could probably roll up toilet paper, paint it yellow and pretend to shoot it out of a gun and you'd have better Lazer gun ammo then you see coming out of these semi-plastic guns that they're using in this movie. This is guaranteed a first take movie. I'm almost 100% positive that they never did more than 1 take.. I wonder what the director was thinking.. Ed Wood is said to be the worst director of all time, but after seeing this movie, I think I appreciate him more.. My god.. Brace yourself if you decide you watch this.. Although, you might find it hysterical. I laughed through some of it, haha.
