Warrior of the Lost World (1983)

How bad is it? It's the worst Robert Ginty film (don't worry if the name doesn't register).
Should you see it? Yes. It starts to drag, but it starts well.

Robert Ginty starred in a bunch of low budget films in the 1980's, which almost no one saw (for good reason) and which never developed a following. This one is squarely Mad Max territory, with lots of action. After radiation wars, a guy on a motorcycle rides through the wasteland after the radiation wars - it looks pretty suburban, for the most part. His cycle's computer gives him messages like "Dorks" and "Bad Mothers." He gets chased and crashes into a wall which is really just an illusion and he gets medical help. Persis Khambatta leads him through an industrial complex to rescue her father and we get to see a VERY slow S&M-based dance sequence. Ginty and Dad escape in a helicopter, leaving Khambatta behind. Then Ginty meets up with outcasts, where they stage fights - and they're stagy - and teams up with them to rescue the girl.
