    Dead End Drive-In
    The premise in this actioner (set in the 1990s, which probably seemed futuristic at this time) is that the world's economy has hit the skids and in Australia, street punks are looting cars for their spare parts. In order to control the mobs of roaming gangs, the Aussie government rounds them up and stashes them in prison camps. When Crabs (Ned Manning) takes his girlfriend Carmen (Natalie McCurry) out to a drive-in movie on a date he does not realize he has just pulled into one of these prisons. In no time at all his tires have been stolen and he sees that he's been trapped. The rest of the action (spliced with humor) involves Crabs fending for himself and trying to finds a way out. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

      I remember seeing this at the rental store but never pulling the trigger and hearing about alot recently so i bought it. It reminded me of Mad Max meets Escape from NY. The last act just fell flat or maybe rushed. Overall I enjoyed it, better that most movies i see.
