After a nuclear holocaust tears the world apart, mankind is forced to the harshness of not only the oppression of others who are much more powerful, but the dead earth which seems to be getting worse with every passing moment. But a savior has risen from the ashes, a man who will defeat those who would torment the weak and make the world a livable place once more. A man named Kenshiro.....

Toyoo Ashida, the director of the film, directed Vampire Hunter D one year prior to directing the anime Hokuto No Ken movie. See more

All home video releases (with the exception to the Italian VHS release) contain censorship of blood and gore. Certain shots were censored or cut by Toei upon the film's original home video release in Japan, due to complaints from parents and PTA groups. These shots include Shin stabbing Kenshiro with his fingers, the death of a villain whose skull explodes out of his head and subsequently emits geysers of blood from the neck, and another villain squishing the head of a crowd chanter. It is believed that the uncensored 35mm reels were destroyed in a fire; the only form in which the uncut version exists is through an Italian VHS release from the 90s. However, on this release, some shots remain censored. See more
