In one of many unpopular and unsupported policy decisions, the US government of the near future outlaws vehicle petrol in an effort to curb the overuse of limited natural resources - except, of course, for official purposes. There are many renegades who oppose the authorities, and will stop at nothing to allow themselves the freedom of burning around the countryside. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

On the WORST movie list

This movie is included in a documentary "The Worst 50 Movies Ever Made". A synopsis of it is:

The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made is a documentary that "celebrates" the kind of cinematic schlock that helped keep Mystery Science Theater 3000 on the air for many seasons. The film consists primarily of clips from some of the films widely considered to be the worst of the worst. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

A clip from "Firebird 2015 AD" is included with Darren McGavin looking visibly embarrassed saying "Yes, a Burner. I'm a BURNER."
