As the blue sky was often used to 'key' the optical effects for much of the film, when the camera panned or moved upwards, it resulted in the special effects moving with the camera and/or revealing clear blue sky elsewhere in the shot. See more »

Now this movie aint great (far from it) but it aint horrid either. Just yer basic post nuclear sci-fi apocalypse survival flick.
Survivors get from point A to point B with a bunch of trouble in between. The trouble actually doesn't add up to much (look for roaches!) and the acting and storyline are at a minimum....BUT!!!!!!
The following things kicked ass!:
Beginning!--->creepy slow suspense as the world faces nuclear destruction!
Score!--->Great music sets the tone for the scenes (saving many)
Sky FX!--->tripped out! The skies are the best looking I've seen in any apocalyptic movie...way cool!
The SUV!!--->They actually built this thing! it works and works great! No scale model here, although I'm sure its looks are best viewed on the outside, but its done well, not cheap, handles the road great, and if i could find one, I'd buy it (look carefully at wheel design....amazing!)
Dats it, Dats all. B-movie sci-fi fun. No brainer..great for 2 for 1 rental, follow it with something that will get brain workin again.
