Storyline

After an environmental disaster, the arctic regions of Scandinavia have become a wasteland, a battlefield for the army and rebels' guerrilla troops. A bunch of crooks with motorbikes, lead by 'Duke', is terrorizing the civilians. An escaped prisoner, Jake, has personal reasons for killing Duke, and he gets help from the locals, including a girl suffering of amnesia and a harmless nutcase. The time for payback is to come, but Duke has decided to strike first. Written by B-rapunSaario

a Cheap Mad Max rip-off?
23 March 2018 | by zzzorfSee all my reviews

Looking at the cover of my DVD I expected this movie to be a cheap Mad Max rip-off, I was partly right. It was similar in a lot of ways, but in lot a bit different.

I did get the cheap part right though. If IMDb trivia is to be believed than this movie lost a lot of its budget and it was quite evident in the quality of the movie. The movie had potential, it just needed that backing to help it reach it.
