Director: Rick King
Writer: W. Peter Iliff
Genre: Futuristic Rollerblading
Johnny Mnemonic without the heart? Blade Runner without the soul? Max Headroom without the brain? In any case, the future is bleak, my friends. Gary Lee and his gang of trench-coat flappin', drug-dealin' rollerblading baddies are busy whipping the youth of an economically devastated U.S. into a frenzied nation of white supremacists. The police are forced to turn to Griffin, a former buddy of Gary Lee, in a last-ditch effort to bring down the evil Rollerboys. Unfortunately, Griffin seems more interested in boffing sexy, undercover cop Casey than destroying his one-time friend. Denizens of the near-future, heed this cautionary tale.
