Does anyone know this Sci-Fi movie title?

I am trying to remember the name of a Sci-fi movie that I saw when I was a child. I was probably about 10 when I saw it, which would be 1992, so I'm guessing the movie is from the 70's, 80's, or early 90's.

It took place in a post apocalyptic world with aliens/monsters. The main protagonist was a white man, who at various points had run ins with a black man. At one point, in the desert, the white man had the black guy at gunpoint, got his gun and threw it in a nearby oasis pond and said "have a nice swim." Later in the movie the black guy had the white guy at gunpoint and said something like "I enjoyed my swim."

At one point the characters were walking in knee/waist high water and were attacked by some female creatures who jumped up from beneath the water.

Another point in the movie the characters spent the night in a large warehouse type building with large cocoons on the ceiling. Eventually the cocoons hatched large bloated naked people covered in slime who attacked them.

At the end of the movie, the main guy and his female friend were in some sort of arena against the antagonist creature who was a man/creature who was hanging by black hydralic wires or veins. They were coming out of his body from all directions. I believe there was a crowd watching the final showdown and the main characters had to beat some challenges or something. After the main characters did what they were supposed to do, the weird hanging creature alien decided to kill them anyway and the female girl said "but you said (whatever he agreed to" and he replied "I lied."

That is all I remember. Does anyone remember this movie and know the title?

"Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone" (1983) ~ It's a 3D film!
Wikipedia synopsis:
Set in the 22nd century, the film opens with the destruction of a space cruise liner that collides with a meteor. The only apparent survivors are three beautiful women who get away in an escape pod and land on the nearest habitable planet. There, they are quickly accosted by the hostile natives and taken aboard a sail-driven vehicle resembling a pirate ship on rails.
In space, an alert goes out for the safe return of the women with a reward of 3,000 mega-credits. A small-time salvage operator named Wolff (Peter Strauss) intercepts the message and heads to the planet. Joining him is his female engineer Chalmers (Andrea Marcovicci), who learns the planet – called Terra XI – is a failed colony that fell victim to a deadly plague and civil warfare. Wolff risks the dangers believing the reward will solve his debt problems.
After landing, Wolff and Chalmers set out in a vehicle called the Scrambler. Soon, they join a battle in progress between a group of marauders called the Zoners and a band of nomads called the Scavs. The Zoners take the women before Wolff can stop them and fly away on jet-powered hang-gliders. Wolff learns from the Scavs that the women were taken into The Zone, which is ruled by Overdog, their sworn enemy. ... Wolff continues oalone but soon catches a teenage Scav named Niki (Molly Ringwald) trying to steal the Scrambler. She convinces Wolff that he needs a tracker if he is to survive, and Wolff reluctantly takes her lead. ...
Back in The Zone, the women are taken to see Overdog (Michael Ironside), who is revealed to be a hideous cyborg, almost entirely machine, with two metal claws for hands.
Still led by Niki, Wolff gets into more predicaments – from being attacked by mutated blob-like beings, to strange mermaid-like women and their giant water dragon.
Wolff and Washington team up and sneak into Overdog's fortress where they find the Zoners entertained by captured prisoners forced to run through a deadly maze of lethal obstacles, hazards and traps.
