     Welcome to Terminal City, a decaying world where the citizens wallow amidst a mind-boggling profusion of discarded consumer goods; a ruthless world where television is exploited to its fullest to sell yet more needless junk to eager consumers; a bewildering land where the unreal is real and the real, unreal. Alex Stevens is hurled into this bedlam where he finds himself pitted against the maniacal Ross Gilmore, Mayor of Terminal City, and the evil Bruce Coddle, agent of Gilmore's Social Peace Enforcement Unit.

This release proved the value of film: the potential to provide effective visual imagery when making points about the real world. Jello Biafra and two from DOA are among the cast and add to the potency of this film. Why isn't this film in every DVD store on the continent? Additionally, there was a fine soundtrack that accompanied this film. The release of this film coincided with the first gulf war courtesy of the elder Bush war-criminal. Amidst a very strange and civilian-slaughtering time, this film gave viewers a frightening taste of the ultimate power freaks. It was also good to see a film of this quality made with such a small budget. Ricochet was further proof that a film need not have an extremely high budget.
