Overview

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

    Tank Girl

    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.

    Awesome and Original

    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.

    Great 1990s Movie

    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!
