City Limits is a Sci-Fi biker movie made in 1984. Despite two now famous actors (James Earl Jones - was he ever young? - and sexy & young Kim Cattrall) it's a B-movie, but not bad for a B-movie. The movie is a bit a "Lord of the Flies" meets "Mad Max". There are also a few actors/actresses that you'll recognize from TV series.
In this 85 minute movie, you get to see a lot of motorcycles, mostly dual-purpose or dirt bikes. The movie is a bit disjointed, and the color is quite bad, specially in the night scenes. It does feature probably the fastest spark plus removal scene in the history of movies...
There's one scene with a woman's breast, you don't need to see the movie to know whose breast it is..
Strangely, some of the male characters are very hard to tell apart, since they look a lot alike.
Quotes: "Boy, I told you to go out and find adventure, not bring it home!" "If you kill me, someone just like me - or worse - will become my replacement. I am inevitable!" "Guns are for scro's, Ray. Besides, it's a waste of good beer"
Plot: Years after a mysterious plague has wiped out most of the adult population, the surviving children have grown up to form violent motorcycle gangs. Young Lee, tired of life on the farm, goes out in search of adventure and soon winds up in the middle of a war between a pair of rival gangs. Soon after Lee proves his worth and is accepted into one of the gangs, however, a new threat appears in the form of the evil Sunya Corporation, which wants to utilize the gangs for their own purposes. Can Lee lead his new-found friends to safety?
Verdict: Okay enough movie, the idea is good, the script isn't, but the acting is not bad as is the stunt work, and there sure are a lot of motorcycles in this movie.
