For most of the movie, the pretty female lead (who has some rather admirable musculature in her arms) is exiled from her apparently post-apocalyptic underground lair where most time is spent in virtual reality, to the barren Earth's surface, mostly sand and snow. Mutated human beings try to capture her, but Bruce Campbell saves her. However, they both get captured and pulled under the Earth's surface where Campbell is put to work mining for pre- apocalyptic items like Cuisanart blenders, and she has more in store for her than that.
However, that's not where the movie starts or ends. It is bookended by some confusing scenes in the underground lair and in the virtual reality. It's unclear what's real and what's not, and I didn't understand the ending at all, I'm afraid.
For those looking for gore, there is some and it is pretty good, but I wouldn't say there's a lot of scenes with it.
