Storyline

Returning from outer space, an astronaut calling himself "The Survivor" finds a nuclear war has left the Earth as a desert wasteland. The Survivor spends 10 years roaming the desert wasteland in search of other people who may have survived the nuclear war. His 10 year search leads him to finding a woman who tells him about a rumored underground city that lies somewhere beneath the desert wasteland and The Survivor thinks the woman knows where it is. But the woman is kidnapped by a man named Kragg before she can reveal to him the location of the underground city. The Survivor goes in search of the underground city as he goes in pursuit of Kragg and his men and rescue the woman from her captors. Written by Daniel Williamson

Tsk, apocalypse happens and everyone starts calling themselves "Kragg"
18 September 2002 | by wildwSee all my reviews

Man returns from space to find war has devastated the earth . . .starts promisingly with a solar powered train, and the hero almost dying, but alas we are not spared the rest of the film. What few people he comes across all try to kill him, except for a scary foreign girl that he becomes. . .erm. .. friendly with.

Well, she gets kidnapped by some bad guy (what is it about the future? There's an apocalypse and suddenly everyone changes their name to Kragg) and being the only woman he's seen, he has to go off to save her. Not too bad a film in the "so bad it's good" sense. A rare accurate post-apocalyptic world - no water OR petrol.
