Troma, Surfing and Nazis
6 December 2012 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

When the grandson of a gun wielding woman is murdered by neo-nazi surf punks in the post-apocalyptic future, this grandma hunts them down for some bloodthirsty revenge.

There is not really all that much surfing, at least not with the Nazis. Seems like mostly stock footage. I wanted to see gun battles on the water, but maybe I forgot that Troma could not afford such awesome things. The movie could just as easily been called "Beach Nazis".

What I like about this movie is that it makes no attempt to provide social commentary. It does not have a serious view of racism, or of white supremacist groups, or even of children leaving their families for gangs. It just has an angry woman trying to get revenge. Thanks, Troma, for just making a quick, fun, silly film and avoiding any attempt at depth.
