Los Angeles has finally had the really big earthquake everyone was afraid of, and what remains is now an island. Because the country's ultra-righteous President-for-Life Cliff Roberton wants it that way, all the weirdos and freaks that previously inhabited New York in large numbers, and the rest of the U.S. in smaller concentrations, have been quarantined on the island of L.A. The president has Snake taken from the nice, decent prison he was living in for a special mission in L.A. The president's daughter has joined the resistance movement determined to overthrow his one-man rule, and has stolen his secret "black box" a doomsday machine to boot. Snake is given a poison which will kill him in a few hours unless he returns to the president for the antidote. His mission is to recover the black box and kill the president's daughter.

    Kurt Russell Fan

    To me this was an awesome movie!! Especially the beginning when Kurt Russell is putting on his leathers. I melted right to my chair. I enjoyed the whole movie. The surf boarding part was a little cheesy but it was definitly a movie collection addition.

    it could have used a little work in the plot of the story and a little more explanation of the "black box". But overall,its a good movie to watch and has one the best endings i've ever seen.
