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).

Another Santiago Mad Max Ripoff
12 March 2001 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Goofball reworking of MAD MAX that seems strangely competent for Cirio Santiago, but it's still a mess. Instead of gasoline, warring factions battle for gunpowder. It's all highly watchable and relatively painless, and actually contains some lively characters. Who would have thought? It's still a big mess, though.....
