Storyline

In a post-apocalyptic underground society ruled by rival religious cults, Dakota is working as an assassin, or "Shepherd" for The Church of Miles. He has been given an assignment to take out a female Shepherd from a rival cult, but balks at completing the task when he sees that his target has a young child. The two assassins and the child all find themselves being hunted down by both cults, and so decided to stick together as they run for their lives. Along the way, they encounter several other strange religious compounds, as well as random thugs living on the outskirts of society. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Very disappointing
9 March 2011 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

Although I was somewhat wary before watching this movie, because Roger Corman produced it, I decided to watch it all the same. Actually, for the first part of the movie, I thought, "Hey, maybe this might turn out to be good." That's because despite having a low budget, the movie's computer special effects, sets, and props were a lot better than you usually get in a Corman movie. However, the movie soon collapsed in my eyes. The story is pretty incomprehensible at times, and it was hard to get interested in the characters' plight at times. The action is also not that special, coming across as dull and badly edited at times. Howell does try hard, even taking off his clothes in one scene, but we didn't need to see that. If you're a fan of Carradine, be warned - his appearance lasts less than five minutes.
