Burst City DVD
Acknowledged as an influence on the cyberpunk genre, this irreverent and kinetic feature fuses the postapocalyptic settings of "Mad Max" with Japanese punk music, as a group of Tokyo's punk bands and their fans prepare to clash with a company planning to build a new nuclear power plant. Just as Yakuza thugs and the police appear to have tamed the uprising, two biker warriors arrive and the construction workers stage a wild revolt. Michirou Endo, Shigeru Izumiya star. 116 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Japanese Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English; photo gallery; theatrical trailer. In Japanese with English subtitles.
