Storyline

Only a few people still live in New York City in 2012. They are organized in gangs with their own turfs. One of them is led by Baron, another one by Carrot, and they are constantly at war with each other. Baron's gang is more peaceful and have developed seeds that can germinate despite the virus plague. The lone ranger Carson is hired by Bishop for protection. Written by Mattias Thuresson

User Reviews

apocalyptic action -- no more, no less
2 March 1999 | by mr. dugSee all my reviews

This is just an action movie: the acting is crappy, the directing is cruddy, the sets are cheesy, and the effects are cheap... but so what?!? This is Yul Brynner stripped to the waist, fighting with knives!!! It's just brilliant!!! If your fantasy involves the sky falling, you'll get off on this. And just in case you're keeping track, this one came after 'Omega Man' and before 'Mad Max'.
