Planet Earth, 2039: The superpowers of the world have destroyed the continents with nuclear warfare. The New Order, a fanatic cult with a pseudo-scientific fixation on large robots that had been previously used to mine the center of the Earth, rule the surviving population with a doctrine of militaristic slavery. An opposition group, The Fighters, live like scavengers and avoid the New Order's death troops while plotting how to overthrow their reign of terror.


Expository and unnecessary dialogue litter this fan film-ish home movie. Props, set locations, acting and camera work leave a lot to be desired. On the other hand, the inane dialogue is clearly recorded. Many of the props are shared between characters. I suppose there was a script, but it doesn't look like it contained a comprehensible plot. I have my doubts the cast and crew understand what this movie is about. Example: a character mentions a need to avoid something environmental which will cause great harm, then proceed to briefly avoid the threat, then carry on like the threat no longer exists, while the threat does clearly still exist. Fight scenes make no sense. Enemies appear out of no where, then fail to make use of their tactical advantage. This movie is so bad the only value in watching it is to document all of the short comings.
