Storyline

Bloodthirsty factions rule the barren earth. It's the 21st Century and a biological disaster has ruined the planet. Here, in a world where gunpowder is more valuable than gold, a few hundred survivors wage the final conflict for power and control. Yet among them rises a new warrior, destined to shape the aeons which will follow -- a man who stops at nothing to achieve his ends, and for whom courage is the only commodity. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

Don't watch this movie, even if your live depends on it.
31 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The point of the movie is that there is a shortage of gunpowder in a futuristic nuclear waste land, however throughout the whole movie gunpowder is just shamelessly wasted. Mortar shells are used on helpless peasants, and each person is shot over 10 times. Also the sound and stunts are so off that people fall over dying before shots are even fired. The side love-story is also a complete joke. Also why is it that only football pads survive nuclear war. Not a single bulletproof vest exists in this movie. If you have the choice of killing yourself or watching this movie, killing yourself might be the better choice.
