A world after the 21st-century oil wars – with energy at a premium, a global fuel shortage and the Earth’s food and resources running out, marauding gangs are terrorising the remaining peaceful people.
Lone warrior hero Hunter, a “bike rider”, joins a group to fight the “battletruck” used by a gang of bloodthirsty, oil-hungry pirates. The fight for survival is on.
Further friction occurs when Annie McEnroe, the villain’s daughter, is caught between the opposing camps.
This rather juvenile Mad Max 2 clone has lots of fast-paced mayhem, and the New Zealand locations provide an intriguingly atmospheric background to the irony and sharp wit of the screenplay.
