Completely lacking ANY redeeming qualities
19 May 2015 | by tofu-1See all my reviews

I am known for my ability to sit through horrible movies and find something entertaining about them. Having said that.....this is the only movie in my entire 50 years of life that I have ever paid to see and walked out of the theater without finishing it...I felt so bad about it that I didn't even ask for a refund...felt I deserved the punishment for having the audacity to think that this might be up there with Mad Max: The Road Warrior (which is the genre I assumed they were trying to emulate)Anyone who says this was an excellent movie needs to have their head examined. Horrible script, stupid special effects and just plain bad acting....years later I am surprised at the number of higher level actors that were involved with this.....
