Movie Info

From the maverick director of Gojoe and Electric Dragon 80,000V comes a futuristic tale of chaos and anarchy driven by an energetic punk-rock soundtrack and set in a bleak future where nuclear-power-plant protesting punk rockers clash with riot police and yakuza with predictably bloody results. In the future Tokyo wasteland a powerful factory owner is preparing construction of a large-scale nuclear power plant. When a group of dissenting punk rock bands and their legions of loyal fans show up to protest the building of the plant, riot police and the tough-talking factory owner's underworld friends show up to ensure work continues uninterrupted. The volatile situation already strained to the breaking point, all hell breaks loose when a gang of leather-clad bikers arrive and the disgruntled construction crew stages a daring revolt against their dictatorial boss. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Cool visuals, but could have been better. It seamed to go on a bit long and was kind of boring, but the visuals make up for it. This is true cyber-punk
