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, Rovi

TITLE: Tank Girl
GENRE: SciFi, Comic based, post apocalyptic, near term
CAST: Lori Petty, Naomi Watts, Malcolm McDowell, Don Harvey and Ice-T
PLOT: A sassy as all get out girl teams up with a female mechanical engineer and a troop of army experiments gone haywire(Kangaroo genes spliced into soldiers) to save themselves from a maniacal, pathological sadist who controls all the water.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 9 of 10; An oscar should have gone to the costumer and set designer. The score was lead by Courtney Love Cobain and includes tunes from Bjork, Ice-T, Devo, Hole, Portishead, Cole Porter, Black Sabbath and others. The stunts are integral to the story (we are talking tanks and kangaroos). The dialogue is crude at times but it is as it would be if the world got blown up by a comet. Plenty of slapstick and situational humor,
DVD BONUS: None, you have to go buy the book, "The Making of..."
ADDED NOTES: Sure to be a cult classic. I wish there was a sequel. I need more irreverent Tank Girl in my life.
