The Reverend's troopers patrol the streets and the slums with assault rifles, ready to prevent any trouble from the revolutionary Kropfelders. Joe Gage and his brother Artie are petty criminals, involved in illegal vitamin trading and smuggling refugees into Mexico. Their business takes a downturn during Joe's stay in prison, and they find themselves without gainful employment. During an altercation in a flophouse, they meet up with Mila and Blaise Hart - two antique hunters who are looking for muscle to protect them while they do a little freelance archeology.

A pinnacle of it's genre.

Rising Storm is an all around excellent film. A post-apocalyptic, satirical, B movie that no true movie buff should miss. If you've gone beyond the thunder dome with cherry 2000 and helped the ice pirates destroy Jared Syn, then this is definitely for you.
