"After a nuclear war, society breaks down into two groups, the evil Euraks and the rebel Federation. A mercenary named Parsifal is hired by the Federation to infiltrate New York City, which is controlled by the Euraks, to rescue the only fertile woman left on Earth. (IMDb)
Yeah, this is another Italian post-apocalyptic action flick. It was just released here on dvd and features again the dynamic duo Michael Sopkiw/George Eastman. Sopkiw looks like a rock star and Eastman is.. well he´s Big Ape The female leads are Anna Kanakis ( The New Barbarians) and Valentine Monnier, very beautiful ladies. The movie was directed by Sergio Martino.
Sopkiw and Monnier looking to the future
It´s a very good Escape from New York rip-off including some Mad Max II themes as well. Violent action, cool characters and a great synth score. Gotta love it!
This is indeed the most entertaining of the post-apocalypse Escape from New-York / Mad Max rip-offs by far ! Yes, it may be cheesy.. but it's also highly enjoyable from start to finish.
The first time i saw this was somewhere around 1987.. It was kinda hard to find in the 90's.. and eventually turned up on dvd in 2003 in a razor-sharp transfer courtesy of US dvd-label Shriek Show.
And the funny thing is, i like this one as much today as i did almost 25 years ago.. and i'm sure i'm not the only one !
