A cool film about a guy named John (Dennis Hopper), who is a Space Trucker. He delivers freight for the Company until he gets fired for being late. He then takes an illegal freight destined for Earth and he takes a waitress and another Space Trucker with him.
Their cargo turns out not to be made out of inflatable women, but rather 5000 vicious robot warriors. This is when the shit hits the fan.
The fifth element-style special effects, some humour, and a couple of explosions make it quite a good film. The critics would probably argue.
