Storyline

In the post-nuclear wastes of Earth two civilizations fight for survival. The Tyrogs, who dwell in the City of Doom, and the Drones, who live underground, free from the high levels of radiation brought about in The Cataclysm. Baktar, leader of the Tyrogs, has just had a child, but the radiation has caused the child to be born a mutant, so he sends Zerak (Lou Ferrigno), his right hand man, to find an unaffected woman. Racela, a beautiful Drone, has chosen the wrong time to venture out of the underground shelter, as Zerak finds and captures her for his leader. However, while guarding her in prison, Zerak falls for Racela and decides to leave the City of Doom with her. With the two groups about to go to war, Zerak must fight his way through his former allies to get Racela to safety. Shot on location in the Philippines, the sprawling landscapes provide for massive battles in this faced-paced science-fiction saga. The nuclear war is over but the fight for survival has just begun... Written by TheUnbeholden

User Reviews

It falls under the "so bad it's good" genre....
12 February 2009 | by kingofdepew2003See all my reviews

...but still not even THAT good. It has its moments, but the entire thing is horrendously padded with endless shots of people walking through hallways, walking through deserts, driving through deserts, etc. There's honestly about 6 scenes in the entire movie, I'd say literally about 80% of it is time wasting coverage scenes, with no dialogue. There's some hilarious scenes, and the acting is a riot. My favorite guy is the doctor with the glasses. I was so sad when he died. Half of the cast and the Drones look like the directors' neighbors. They don't even bother to do another take when they trip over their lines.

Overall, not bad but there's better bad/good movies. Like Never Too Young to Die!
