Welcome to the future. Civilization has been obliterated by natural catastrophes and global economic collapse. In the rotting skeletons of once great cities, the remnants of mankind struggle to survive under the brutal reign of vicious warlords who rule by fear and the power of the fist. The only hope for a courageous band of street urchins is the brave fighter Jonas, the last surviving keeper of the secrets of an ancient martial arts dynasty. Jonas must challenge the heartless Bosco in a fight for freedom or death ... only then can he become master of mankind's destiny. Written by
The director himself said, that this wasn't supposed to be seen in cinemas (it was shown at the Fantasy Filmfest at several cities throughout Germany), but was made for TV. So having that in mind, you might rate it a bit higher than me. And the director seemed like a nice guy (he even showed his movie in China at a festival and they loved it there, he told us). Why the loved it? One can guess because they didn't really catch onto the fact, that the people "acting" in this movie, couldn't really be called actors and so they just enjoyed the action scenes instead.
And if you're only out for the action, than you will enjoy this too. But if you're looking for something deeper, something meaningful, stay away from this film. Apart from the fact, that there's no real acting in this movie, there's also no story to found anywhere near it also. There are of course other martial arts movies who were great, with little-to-none story also, but they had even better fight scenes. That of course brings us back to the beginning: This movie did not have much money/a big budget! I don't think it deserves more than 3 points (out of 10), but I might have considered some of the facts I listed above into my vote ...
