After The Fall of New York  is a cheesy knock-off of the cult classic Escape From New York. But like most knock-off they're parodies of the original source material and have achieved cult status on their own. This one is no exception. From "Martin Dolman" (Sergio Martino) comes a tale about a once great city that has fallen during World War III. The city's inhabitants are dead or dying from radiation or have mutated to it's filthy surroundings. The "government" has hired a man who looks like a hybrid of Mad Max and Snake Plisken to travel the nuclear wastelands and sneak into New York City to find the "prize". Someone who's very being is key for the survival of the human race.

Filled with action and cheesy special effects, After The Fall of New York is a very entertaining sci-fi/action film. Takes one part Escape From New York, one part Mad Max, throw in some Mad Max 2 and a dash of Alien and viola! For fans of 80's Italian b-movies and lovers of bad cinema. Just remember the filmmakers were having fun. Not to be taken seriously folks. "George Eastman" steals the movie in a great guest star appearance (man can he swing some mean hardware!).
