Quotes

[first lines]
Salera Elizabeth Hawke: This is the Earth, the year 2638. Six world wars, three of them in the last 200 years. One third of the population, six billion people, dead. Radiation storms, disease, famine, claim another 1 billion lives annually. Two factions are still at war for control of what remains. Genetically enhanced humans called Alphas, mutants and non-altered humans called Rebels. This time it was called the Cleansing War.

Ugh!! What a Waste of Time!!
17 November 1998 | by Robert-53See all my reviews

The saddest part of this "movie" (if you can even call it that) is seeing the great talents of Michael York being completely wasted in this piece of trash. The special effects are mediocre dime-store at best, and the plot of 2 sides at war on earth teaming up for something never defined until the end is plodding and dull. The video shop should have paid ME to see this......
