Goofs

Early in the movie, when Trace has the Highway Warriors chasing him, he ambushes them, kills several and hides in a cylindrical abandoned building. While his enemy assaults the front, he escapes and returns to his vehicle and flamethrower. Torching several, he torches the last man, who is blonde when he ducks away from the flame. A second later, as his burning body comes flying out, he's wearing a protective hood, which can be seen quite clearly. See more »

Ugh!
20 April 1999 | by CervaiseSee all my reviews

Hideous rip-off of the "Road Warrior" genre -- low-budget and low-brow, the worst of the worst. It might be sort of amusing in that MST3K way, with goofy scenes that recall "R is for Rocket" and the Morlocks, except that the whole thing is so disturbingly misogynistic. If you decide to rent this, don't tell anyone whose respect you want that you're doing it.
