Synopsis by Mark Deming
Three brave warriors take on a street gang that's taken control of a post-apocalyptic metropolis in this sci-fi action thriller. In the year 2010, civilization has been crushed by global thermonuclear war, and as anarchy spreads, two remaining police officers (Ice-T and Coolio) attempt to keep order. A group of thugs and criminals calling themselves the Ganglanders have taken control of the city, with psychotic Lucifer (Vincent Klyn) as their leader. A deadly flesh-eating disease is sweeping the city, and scientist Dr. Adams (Tim Thomerson) may have discovered a cure; when word gets out about the doctor's research, Lucifer and his henchmen kidnap Adams, realizing the cure could be a powerful bargaining chip in crushing any final opposition to their plans. Jared (Costas Mandylor) is a former military hero whose wife and children were killed by Lucifer and his Ganglanders; eager to get revenge and save the lives of those suffering from the plague tearing apart the city, Jared and two martial arts experts, Derek (Sasha Mitchell) and Alexis (Kathleen Kinmont), team up to rescue Adams and bring down the Ganglanders.
