Tank GirlDirector: Rachel Talalay, Lori Petty, Malcolm McDowell, Ice-T
Based on a popular British cult comic book, this film is the story of a futuristic feminist superhero and her fight to preserve the environment against an evil government bureaucracy. The action is set in the year 2033, after an ecological disaster of drought and pollution has ravaged the countryside, and water is scarce. Tank Girl (Lori Petty) is a sassy punker who has her own vintage tank in tow, along with other high-tech weapons. Her mutant friends join her in bizarre battles against the corporate-statist Department of Water and Power and its villainous chief, Kesslee (Malcolm McDowell). At stake is the world's water supply, which the Department is hoarding and which the rebels frequently raid. Rock star Iggy Pop has a cameo as Rat Face, one of the half-human, half-kangaroo Rippers. Courtney Love coordinated the post-punk soundtrack. ~ Michael Betzold

It is so hilarious! I love it. Lori Petty is a favorite actress of mine.
I loved this movie. It was a amazing follow up to the comics, and the actors/actresses they picked were all perfect for their parts. I'd watch it over and over again. Phenomenal.
I absolutely LOVE this movie. I've no clue why. Perhaps it's the roos, or Tank Girl herself! The entire film draws me to it. I love the dialogue and Tank Girl's tude! MUST WATCH CHICK EMPOWERMENT!
Tank Girl is one of my favorites of all time. It's technically awesome, the acting is good (most of the time), the lines are unforgettable, the soundtrack rocks, and the story is original and entertaining. Overall I've been watching since it for years and girls and guys alike seem to like it. Great for someone who is open minded and likes a movie they can just laugh at.
For the best fun and laugh filled movie.. then this is the one movie you can't afford not to watch or own !!!
This is one of my favorite movies of all time.... it's GREAT!!
I really loved ''Tank Girl.'' I was living in England when the movie came out in the theatres, and everybody over there that knew ANYTHING about this movie were besides themselves raving about this movie! After I returned home to the States, I watched this movie and liked it, too. The 1930s song by Cole Porter, ''Let's Do It'' is in this movie, and it's placed in a hiliarous spot! I highly reccommend buying this movie, because it's well worth the money!
i love the style of clothes in this movie. They are the best because its like noone cares.anywyas, a long time ago my best friend couldn't stop raveing about it and i just shruged it off but i saw it on a movie shelf at hollywood video and decided to watch it and was TOATALLY hooked, i watched it liek 5 times i love it!
I really liked this movie. It was hilarious but in a dumb kinda way! lol
I like this movie, Tank Girl, it's good, funny, sexy, action-packed sci-fi film in the decade, the soundtrack for the film is unforgettable, exciting action-packed scenes I was totally excited about, the screenplay, plot, and visuals is amazing, and the performances is great, Lori Petty is a cool and funny actress to play the title role in the film.
