A martial artist hunts a killer in a plague-infested urban dump of the future. He is the protective escort for a half-human, half-cyborg woman whose programming contains a possible cure for a plague that's threatening to wipe out the entire population of Earth. But a woman is kidnapped by the martial artist's evil nemesis while they are en route to her Atlanta headquarters. That leads him right into a lion's den of sadomasochistic torture and torment.
He's the First Hero of the 21st Century...And He's Our Only Hope.

More Movie Taglines:
- He's the First Hero of the 21st Century...And He's Our Only Hope.
- Willy: Go to hell! Fender Tremolo: Been there.
Pearl Prophet: Why did you help me? Gibson Rickenbacker: I thought it was somebody else.
Fender Tremolo: First there was the collapse of civilization: anarchy, genocide, starvation. Then when it seemed things couldn't get any worse, we got the plague. The Living Death, quickly closing its fist over the entire planet. Then we heard the rumors: that the last scientists were working on a cure that would end the plague and restore the world. Restore it? Why? I like the death! I like the misery! I like this world!
- 'Moeller, Ralf (I)' (Brick Bardo) had such a thick German accent that all of his dialogue had to be dubbed.
The character names Gibson Rickenbacker, Nady Simmons, Fender Tremolo, Marshall Strat and Pearl Prophet are also names of musical instruments or manufacturers.
This was the last official theatrical release for Cannon Films after going bankrupt in 1987.
The gun used by Gibson Rickenbacker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) are paintball guns, Tipman SMG-60's. This is important in the abandoned factory scene. Rickenbacker runs behind a dumpster and unscrews a 9 oz. CO2 bottle then, inserts another one to simulate "reloading" the weapon.
Director Albert Pyun originally envisioned the film as a heavy opera without dialogue, shot in granulated black and white, but the proposal encountered the refusal of producers.
