Movie Info

This bleak post-apocalyptic science fiction actioner substitutes a plague instead of a bomb as the reason for civilization's demise but the result is the same -- grizzly motorcycle gangs with a ton of gasoline to burn. In City Limits the older generation has been wiped out by the plague, and the younger generation lives in a state of anarchy in a world controlled by biker gangs. The gangs live by rules discovered in pre-apocalyptic comic books. Two rival biker gangs, the Clippers and the DAs, have taken to dividing up a city amongst themselves and live under a fragile truce. Utilizing a comic-strip version of medieval times, a code has been established for violations of the pact between the gangs -- competitive jousting or acts of reciprocal retaliation. When a person dies, like a post-Holocaust Viking funeral, he is cremated along with his motorcycle. But this shaky peace between the bike gangs is threatened when the fascistic Sunya Corporation attempts to take over the city with the cooperation of the DA bike gang.

Audience Reviews for City Limits


Would be decent setting turns into a slow dull action-lacking mess. The characters aren't too developed, nor fun enough to follow. The post-apocalyptic world doesn't have the most remarkable scenery, but it works. The story is bland and tired.

In this cheesy apocalyptic film, a group of teenagers must stop the rivalry of two biker gangs which are ruling the remaining population after adults died from an outbreak. Extremely boring.

I'm assuming this was an attempt to cash in on '80s fads like "Breakin" to get the kids to come see a movie. This was pretty bad, but the MST3K episode was excellent.
