Mad Rider (Europe: English title) (video box title)
After the third world war the world is a mess and ruled by a gang of criminals known only as the Omega. The leader of the
Omegas is known only as the Professor (Please, no Gilligan's Island jokes.) One is standing firm against the tyranny of the
Omegas, but all he cares about is staying alive with his suped up bike Einstein.
But he get recruited into helping some people known as the Elders and a beautiful woman named Nastasia to rescue her father
from Omega hands before he is forced to give them the secret location of their base.
This is not a horrible movie by any means, it's just not a good movie either. It's fair and only fair, so-so. Now I will tell
you why. My favorite character is Einstein the motorcycle. That's right, the supped up motorcycle. Which really isn't saying
much. The character names aren't really complicated are they? The Rider, The Professor, Henchmen. Didn't exactly rack their
brains coming up with these names did they? Also, I would have explored more the world of tomorrow. The destroyed cities and
what not. The cast does a great job acting with what they were given and I wish we got to see more of the Sewer Mutants, not
much light in the sewer. All and all a fair movie but I wish they put more effort into making it a great movie and not settled
for just okay. 6 STARS.
I agree with Zedd on this one, because it's just so-so. The story, the characters and even the action was just so-so. Could
have been better and could have been much, much worse. So I too will be fair and give it 6 STARS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ ACTING (The acting is pretty well done consider what they had to work with.)
+ EINSTEIN (Gotta love that bike.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER (Writing, action and story could have all been done better.)
