Storyline

Gibson Rickenbacker is a hired fighter living in a plague-ravaged apocalyptic America where a plague has infested most of the United States and the rest of the world. In New York City, Gibson encounters a woman named Pearl Prophet. Pearl reveals to Gibson that she is a cyborg who is carrying vital-information for a group of scientists in Atlanta who are working on a cure to the plague and Pearl hires Gibson to escort her back to Atlanta. But Pearl is kidnapped by "Pirates" a murderous gang led by Fender Tremolo, who wants the cure for themselves and they decide to take Pearl to Atlanta themselves. Gibson, joined by a young woman named Nady Simmons, goes in pursuit of Fender and his gang, as Gibson sets out to rescue Pearl, stop Fender and his gang from reaching Atlanta and defeat Fender who slaughtered Gibson's family.

Goofs

Although you never see more than two men on deck and four or five below decks on the 40-foot boat, when Gibson catches up in Charleston, Freddy has a lot more men with him. In addition to the cyborg and at least one "pirate" guarding her off-screen, Freddy is joined in one shot by another 13 pirates, and this is after Gibson has already killed five. That's a total of at least 21 on the small boat. See more »

Quotes

Fender Tremolo: First there was the collapse of civilization: anarchy, genocide, starvation. Then when it seemed things couldn't get any worse, we got the plague. The Living Death, quickly closing its fist over the entire planet. Then we heard the rumors: that the last scientists were working on a cure that would end the plague and restore the world. Restore it? Why? I like the death! I like the misery! I like this world!

3 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the best "post-apocalyptic street fighter" movie ever. it's so bleak, so raw, sadistic; rather cheesy, and yet it is not at all "campy". how is this possible?? great acting, that's how. i mean great acting--given the context. it's a unique film. the sets and costumes are great. fender is a great villain. i was like 10 or 12 when i first saw this and i still get chills thinking about fender. i've seen it 4 times but not in a while now. i remember the dialogue being sparse, in fact i remember long stretches that were rather silent, and yet i was rapt. maybe the street fighter "blade runner"?? don't laugh, i'm serious. van damme~ford. fender~roy batty. i can't wait to see it again.
