Lots of action and scantily clad girls, but little else

It's hot.

It's the desert (well, actually, it's a gravel pit in the Philippines masquerading as the desert)

They're fighting over water.

End of story.

Once you get past the fighting over what appears to be only a few gallons of water, the plot of this post apocalyptic grindhouse flick becomes nonexistent, as entire reels of film go by with either not much happening, or several lengthy car chases and explosions and shootouts. Most of the characters here are never even given names, let alone do we ever find out anything about them. It's also rather difficult to learn anything about the characters when there is hardly any dialogue to the film.

Good looking girls in shorts, and good action in the first half hour and at the climax are about all this has going for it. Its climactic battle between the Chuck Norris lookalike leader of one tribe, aided by the Keebler elves, against the other tribe led by one-handed Anton LaVey lookalike was reasonably exciting and well done, but it's a LONG wait for it. If you can turn your mind off and just enjoy the action scenes, this movie might be more watchable for that and the good looking half nude girls, but if you want more than that, look elsewhere. I'm also a fan of William/ Bill Ostrander, so I was disappointed by his somewhat small role in the film, and by the fact that his voice was apparently dubbed for his few lines. Also, this movie looks like it was filmed a year or two prior to its release, as Ostrander looks noticeably younger than he did in Christine, which was released only three months after this.
