in the genre of "Class of 1999", this movie kicks but!
I saw this movie shortly after it came out in 1991, and I immediately fell in love with it.

This movie takes you to the worst place possible: the not too distant future! In this future, the government has failed, and there is total chaos in society. There are hardly any jobs left, you have to pay even for basic education, Harvard has been relocated to Japan, homeless shelters have become homeless CAMPS (which look like prison camps), and the pizza guy delivers the pizzas with an M-16!

A gang called the Rollerboys is "buying back America, one piece at a time". but in doing so, they are sterilizing the populace with a drug called "The Rope". The Rollerboys talk about "The Day of the Rope", which is the day they say they will get even, and hang all their enemies. The Rollerboys are a prejudiced group, and their enemies are those who are not white, and those who are too weak and who take their drugs.

It is left up to the pizza delivery boy (Griffin, AKA Corey Haim) and what is left of the governmental agents to stop this madness, and to capture the leader of the Rollerboys, Gary Lee, before he can do any more harm to those that Griffin cares for.

This movie is a great combination of the movies Solar Babies and Class of 1999, with it's own twists....a must have for any one who is a fan of bleak futuristic movies!
