Critical reaction

Rotten Tomatoes records an aggregate rating of 60% from 5 reviews.[2] Village Voice found it "self-impressed film", and considered it an over-deliberate attempt to create a cult film, which failed, "funnier on paper than in reality", making a negative comparison to the Mad Max franchise.[3]
