Stupid
Well stupid sums this sucker up. It's not bad, it's just stupid. Men and women fighting each other because it's lethal to have sexual intercourse. While normal thinking people would try to find a cure these people wage war. And instead of living platonic besides each other, or even ignore each other since no sex means no death, they rather wipe the other gender out. Luckily our hero Joe Knight (Bryan Genesse) has a cure, and has to convince men and women to stop fighting, take a drug and have sex. Yes convince them, male prisoners of war have to make a choice, be prisoner or have sex after 23 years with women, what a hard choice!

The worst part is that I saw this flick on a German channel (RTL television) who cut this flick, even though it was aired at 4:30 in the morning. So I missed the nudity, which is a shame because the women, and especially Kehli O'Byrne, are goodlooking. A good thing that in this apocalyptic future not only cars, weapons and ammo are abundant but the razors to shave legs and armpits are there too. So I don't know if I missed a lot of nudity, but I know it was there and that was actually the reason I kept watching this ;)

The film is very short, only 75 minutes and my guess is that they only had a hour real film, because there's at least 15 minutes of two different groups of men fighting each other for no apparent reason. (maybe it was explained but I can't understand German that well).

Bryan Genesse shows he knows some martial arts skills, and it's a shame they didn't use that more. Plus there's a whole camp full of scantily clad women so why not show them some more. I don't need to see Joe and his friend McCabe (James Brolin) sleeping with their shirts off. Show some boobs!

From the pre-credit sequence you know it's going to be a stupid movie, and it's not going to be any better than that. It's not the worst movie ever (Xtro3: Watch the Skies and Mutant Species to name a few are worse), Bryan Genesse, Kehli Brand and the few boobshots make this one at least a bit enjoyable. I don't recommend it though, but if you're lying in bed (like I was) there's no harm seeing it. It probably will help you fall in sleep faster too.
