24 February 2002 | by bloody-3See all my reviews

A sci-fi camp comedy musical set in Sydney of the future. The cast is well suited to comedy-Dasha Blahova (who has since returned to Czechia) & Ralph Cotterill and Jeff Duff & Machs Colombani make memorable duos. Trivia:Blahova and Cotterill both appeared in The Howling III.

It was interesting to read the IMDb comments from director Gary L.Keady about the underground locations used. The director has stated that in some of the locations he saw graffiti from the 19th century! I wonder if people can still go there? The soundtrack was great, it was very uplifting music in particular "Fighting for You". An enjoyable movie and my favourite Aussie film of the 80's.
