Storyline

In the nuclear ravaged wasteland of Earth 2087 water is as precious as life itself. The isolated Lost Wells outpost survived the holocaust and the inhabitants guard the source of their existence. Now an evil cult of renegades want control of their valuable water supply. And the villagers are no match for such brute military force. Only one man can help the stricken community - a mercenary living in a distant cannibal city. But even he, and his strange henchmen, may not be able to survive in the world gone wild.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The original version implied that the dangerous cult based itself on one of the few books remaining after the holocaust: L. Ron Hubbard's "Dianetics." Lawyers for Scientology got wind of this and threatened to sue Apollo Pictures, who removed all references to Hubbard and Dianetics. See more »

Goofs

Ethan says, "We have Hydrogen dioxide," meaning water. But water is known as dihydrogen oxide or dihydrogen monoxide. Hydrogen Dioxide would be HO2, which cannot exist. See more »

Fast Forgetable Fun
22 October 1999 | by (Minneapolis, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

I remembered Michael Pare and Adam Ant as heart-throbs from my highschool days in the early 80's, and so snapped up this so-called futuristic action flick when I saw it on the cheap shelf at my local video rental shop.

The cast are a notable list of where-are-they-now's doing their best with a rather unimaginative Mad Max clone.

Worth seeing for a few dazzeling action sequences, and some amusing one-liners, if you've nothing better to do on a weeknight. Just don't expect Thunderdome.
