The Postman


Another futuristic drama. In the year 2013, America is devastated, and the common man severely oppressed. Our hero arrives at a settlement in a borrowed Postman uniform. This is taken as a sign by the residents, who see him as a saviour come to rid them of their evil, murderous overlord. The hero eventually gets around to doing something, having a love affair along the way. The overlord sees that a lot of innocent people get killed too.
The critics have not been too kind to this movie.
