"...A pulsing, throbbing orchestration....The film alternately, and sometimes simultaneously, suggests the rhythm and texture of BLADE RUNNER, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and THE WARRIORS..."

"...[With] a pulsating mix of flashy cutting and Ry Cooder music....A guilty-pleasure cult movie..."
Beautiful young rock singer Ellen Aim is kidnapped off stage by a motorcycle gang. Her manager then hires a young adventurer to help him rescue his client, but what he doesn't realize is that the man he hired was once Ellen's boyfriend.
Romance and violence collide in this rock 'n' roll fantasy set against a background of highly stylized urban decay. A sexy female singer is kidnapped by a gang of vicious bikers and her cool, laconic ex-boyfriend must come to her rescue. The pounding soundtrack features songs by Stevie Nicks, The Blasters, Ry Cooder and others.
