Warlords of the Twenty-First Century

In my opinion, this is the most accurate portrayal life in the twenty-first century that's ever been made. This is especially impressive since the film was made way back in 1982.

After the oil wars, large areas of the American countryside have become lawless wastelands. A crew of merciless bandits scour the land, looking for diesel fuel. They're lucky enough to find a whole bunch of it, but then their only female runs off on them. She gets picked up by some schmuck on a dirt bike, and he takes her to the little democratic commune of Clearwater. Then, her old buddies catch up with her. They take over Clearwater, but the girl escapes and runs back to the dirt bike guy. Together with some of the people from Clearwater, they decide to fight back against the tyranny of evil men.

To be fair, it's no worse than most of the other low-budget action movies from the eighties. But it is bad. There's some violence and a few explosions to keep it kind of interesting, but it doesn't do much good.

I actually saw this, or at least some of it, when I was a kid. I remember thinking it was silly as hell. My opinion hasn't changed much.
