    Very underrated 80's Post-apocalyptic drive-in prison. Creative to a high point. They just don't make movies like this anymore. If you've never seen will make your day memorable. 5/5

    I finally got around to seeing this one, and this movie serves as a reminder of how Australian films are the best at portraying the Wasteland.

    Starts by ticking you into thinking it's going to be one of the 47 million Mad Max rip offs that was released around the same time, but quickly takes a left turn into "poignant social commentary". Keeps the punks though, so that's cool.

    Strong premise but with an unsatisfactory pace.

    A more colorful "Mad Max". If Trump becomes president this film will loom like a documentary.

    A lot of ozploitation fun. Under the surface there is some great dialog about oppression and consumerism.

    Gonzo ozploitation about a near future where drive-in theatres act as concentration camps for troubled youth. It's dumb, it's trashy, it rocks.

    I really enjoyed this for what it was, sure, some of the acting was sub par, but the production design, premise and stunts made it really worthwhile.
