Young Lee, tired of life on the farm, goes out in search of adventure and soon winds up in the middle of a war between a pair of rival gangs. Soon after Lee proves his worth and is accepted into one of the gangs, however, a new threat appears in the form of the evil Sunya Corporation, which wants to utilise the gangs for their own purposes. Can Lee lead his new-found friends to safety? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

User Reviews

And upon his head...
10 May 2002 | by mothygamerSee all my reviews

John Stockwell appeared to have a promising career ahead of him. He co-starred with Tom Cruise in the horrible "Losin' It," with a car in Stephen King's "Christine," and with a dinosaur in the quite forgetable "My Science Project." For whatever reason, he, James Earl Jones, Rae Dawn Chong, Kim Cattrall, and Robby Benson signed on to make this post-apocalyptic story. But he wears a (very fake) animal skull as a motorcycle helmet, and for that reason alone the first few minutes of the film are worth watching.
