A bandit and his posse travel in an armored vehicle in a post-apocalyptic future where fuel is a precious commodity. This film was made in New Zealand and was called "BATTLETRUCK" and was filmed in the South Island.
"Awesome movie.. very watchable again and again. Its got a really gritty post apocalyptic feel to it and i think its just as good as Mad Max 1 and 2 and BETTER than Thunderdome. The opening sequence with the radio announcer and the smoke in the picture is great.. so simple.. but very effective."
