In the 21st Century America has descended into barbarism, anarchy and disease. Only one person has a cure for the destruction - cyborg Pearl Prophet (Dayle Haddon). However, she is captured by cannibalistic Flesh Pirates, who plan to keep her knowledge to themselves. Only sabre-wielding Gibson Rickenbacker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) can save her - and civilisation.
Jean-Claude Van Damme, aka "the Muscles from Brussels", had only a few movies to his credit when he played the hero in this lame post-apocalyptic action flick from 1989. It's really just another martial-arts movie, dressed down with near-future trash and dirty sets that have "low budget" written all over them. Van Damme plays the protective escort for a half-human, half-cyborg woman whose programming contains a possible cure for a plague that is threatening to wipe out the entire population of Earth. But the woman is kidnapped by Van Damme's evil nemesis (is there any other kind?) while they are en route to her Atlanta headquarters. That leads Van Damme right into a lion's den of sadomasochistic torture and torment. If you've made it this far (and if you have, why?), you are probably a founding member of the Jean-Claude Van Damme fan club. To everyone else: don't say you weren't warned--this is the kind of movie in which naming characters after electric guitars (Van Damme's character is named "Gibson Rickenbacker") qualifies as clever screen writing. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

The film is set in an apocalyptic future where a plague has wiped out most of civilisation and few remain and those that do are starving and outnumbered against a goup of villains all named after a make of guitar,a bit cheesy me thinks,but hold on wait a minute,van damme is here to save us and all could well be good again in the world.
The film is enjoyable and uses sergio leones techniques where there are long moments with dialogue,and in places this works,in others its clinging on for dear life.This is saturday night fodder that you will enjoy,whether you put it alongside the best dvds in the world is entirely your call.
It doesn't really make much sense and it is ridiculous but there is plenty of action and pantomime villiany.
The fight scenes are as over the top and implausible as I remembered from this type of film.
Yes he does do the splits!
(I am just reviewing the film rather than any particular version or DVD extras)

I used to have this on VHS as a kid, and thought id buy it on DVD. Great film, highly recommend.Published 26 days ago by Keeley
This film is a post apocalyptic fun fest. Absolutely stupid and in no way a sci fi classic, doesn't provoke any serious existential questions or make us wonder if we truly know... Read morePublished 8 months ago by PeterD
