About the Movie
Blast off on a high-powered adventure starring Peter Strauss as a galactic bounty hunter menaced by a mechanical madman. It is the year 2136 and Wolff (Strauss), while answering a distress signal from Terra Eleven, agrees to rescue three beautiful maidens from the plague-ridden planet. When the women are kidnapped by henchmen of Overdog (Michael Ironside), the wicked half-man/half-machine who rules the planet, Wolff takes off in hot pursuit. As he challenges assorted monsters and mutants, circumstances throw Wolff together with Niki (Molly Ringwald), a spunky waif who agrees to guide him to Overdog's scrap-metal kingdom. Wolff's exploits in the Forbidden Zone are packed with extra-terrestrial thrills, plus special effects guaranteed to dazzle you.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It attempts so much that it will probably remind you of at least a dozen other pirate, gladiator, horror and science-fiction stories, because its own plot is none too distinctive and is seriously overcrowded.
Rotten: A muddled science fiction tale.
I remember this one
This is a good adventure flick that is worth checking out, if not to see Molly Ringwald play something other than Pritty in Pink. I won't devulge details of the story (you can read them up above) but it is a typical damsil in distress story and the main character is a dead ringer for Spike Spegal in Cowboy Bebop. Good music, decent visuals for the time and imaginative sets with intresting cast of characters make this a good watch. Check it out.
Saw this in 3d when I was a kid.
Good old fashioned red and blue glasses. I saw this in 3d when I was about 8 or 9. It was actually a fun little action move. I rather enjoyed and if your nostaligiac for some good action 80's sci fi with ok acting and story at least give it a rent.
I saw this for the first time on HBO in 1984.
