Two fellow prisoners, one a renegade and another mild-mannered engineer, are released on a desert planet with barren resources. Repeatedly Kyne and Adams come into contact for a final showdown that will determine the communities fate.
In sum, this plot follows many other sci-fiction futuristic tales of a post-apocalyptic society whose remnants fight over the scorched Earth. In this case, the Earth is a desert planet much like the Sahara or Mojave Desert. Similar to "The Road Warrior" "Waterworld" etc. the people are torn between being survivalists and trying to form some vision and some community for the future. Beyond simply a survivalist tale of good versus evil, this story has many valuable themes: man's nature towards good or evil versus environment shaping behavior, redemption, marriage and commitment, Biblical themes in the real world, etc.Written by

The TV Movie aired on the Sci-fi Channel the same year as the release of the science fiction film No Escape (1994). Both films have a similar plot. No Escape (1994) starred Ray Liotta as a imprisoned former soldier whom is dumped on a prison island and left there to survive or die and he agrees to help a fortified village inhabited by resourceful prisoners to defend the village from a gang of barbarian warriors that live in the jungle on the prison island. This film is about prisoners whom are dumped on a desert planet and find themselves fighting for survival against nomadic desert warriors on that planet. See more »
The Worst Film Ever Made
This, quite simply, is the worst film ever made. It's hard to say whether the almost entirely stolen story line, the horrific plot holes, the embarrassing special effects, or Alec Baldwin made this movie so ruinously poor. Probably all of those factors are very important, but mostly, the film is crashingly, achingly dull. Even the occasional random dip into soft core pornography with the lovely Lisa Bonet does not raise even the slightest flicker of interest, neither when the buggies come and circle round our "political prisoner" (He was imprisoned for writing a slogan on a wall, oh yes...).
Watch it, because this is a landmark.
