California has separated along the San Andreas fault from a devastating earthquake measuring 9.5 on the Richter scale. Four hundred seconds of hell has changed the face of America, giving birth to the "New Eastern Sea" and a new island off the coast of Arizona - "Mohave Island" -born of the desert wasteland of Central California. Hovering over the New Eastern Sea is a toxic mist of gas and mineral deposits that effectively jam communication with the rest of America - if it still exists. A group of high speed nomads, defenders of an old world, saviors of the new, are determined to survive: Army Captain Nick Preston (Dolph Lundgren), Airforce Captain Sarah McBride (Sherri Alexander) and Marine Gunnery Sargeant Lucky Simcoe (Joe Michael Burke). Three branches of the military, three different philosophies, one mission: Survive, Restore and Rescue in the aftermath of the Great Earthquake and draw the last line of defense for the new western front of the United States. Armed with their ingenuity, they scavenge from the past to create something new for the future. They map their new world, rescue the forgotten and defend the coast. Always searching for food, fuel and fellow survivors. And maybe even a bridge back home. They are the only law in a lost land and the only hope, living by they're wits, guts and above all, invention. These are America's last defenders. And this is their Last Patrol.

Not sure why I rented this. Must have thought it was some intriguing cult film. Watched it on fast forward x4 and x8 rather than waste any more of my precious time here on Earth. Not to put too fine a point on it, It's a stinker, without character, plot, dialogue or tension. Best watch it on x16, or perhaps backwards, or better still see it with friends, turn the volume down and make up a funny dialogue. Absolute waste of film.
