Key Characters:
The Lone Hero (Mike Waters)
Zordax (Tolga Karaer)
Dr. Cergum (Christo Lepovsky)

The year is 2045, and civilization was previously decimated by humanity due to "absurd logic", and after nothing was left, a nuclear holocaust came, causing the era of the atomic nightmare. Chaos, radiation, epidemics, all of this was pure madness and imagined by the obsession of mankind's germ annihilation. (Take that penicillin!). Ok so we don't know what really caused the initial downfall, but since we have a nuclear (or nukular) holocaust, we'll use that.

The Story:
Out of this chaos we have a leader, Zordax!!!!! (emphasis on the ax) who's main purpose is to destroy what is left of humanity. And he has followers too. Why I don't know. So the beginning of the movie starts out with our lone hero wandering about scavenging, and the dude with the bmx gear above shoots him. Ok so now he's captured.

For some reason Zordax has Dr. Cergum doing something with our lone hero. This is especially odd as seeing that he wants to eradicate all the humans. Anyways I can't tell you anymore since it's a short flick.

"Someone tell this dude this was lame even in the 80's, oh and KISS SUCKS!"

The Rating:
This was a short at 12 minutes, and I must say it's well worth the 10 bones. It's very inventive and you even get to to see the weird guy (above) running in heels! Awesome! The theme, overture, and action music were done by "Chernobyl Cha-Cha", how appropriate. Any PA fan will want this on their shelf.

The DVD can be purchased off Syl's website (listed at the top) for $10. The dvd contains versions in the original french, subtitled english, and dubbed english. Again don't worry, I didn't give away the whole movie. No spoilers here.

Special thanks to Syl for the DVD.
