Goofs

Early in the movie, when Trace has the Highway Warriors chasing him, he ambushes them, kills several and hides in a cylindrical abandoned building. While his enemy assaults the front, he escapes and returns to his vehicle and flamethrower. Torching several, he torches the last man, who is blonde when he ducks away from the flame. A second later, as his burning body comes flying out, he's wearing a protective hood, which can be seen quite clearly. See more »

Great one!
12 April 2016 | by dmdbSee all my reviews

I only write reviews of movies with low rating, which actually are not that bad. Give them a chance!

At first I thought that this is ''yet another Mad Max wannabe'', but this is THE BEST Mad Max wannabe! The main character looks the same as Max, they all drive similar vehicles, live in dessert... almost everything is the same, but still, it was great to me! I love post- apocalyptic movies, and if you like them too, make sure to watch this one! Don't expect something spectacular, this still is a rip-off, but the best one of all, at least for me.

6.5/10
