In the early 21st century, the USA is in the wake of the Second Civil War. The whole country is in a constant state of emergency. What was formerly called the American Congress now rules the country with fascistic methods. There is only one free city left, Steel Harbor, a coastal California industrial town which is headquarters for the resistance. This is the home town of Barb Wire, owner of the Hammerhead nightclub. As times aren't good, Barb has a second job. She's a bounty hunter and you probably wouldn't want her after you. Barb's credo is to never take sides for anybody and that's the only way to survive these days in the crime-ridden streets of Steel Harbor. One evening, her former lover Axel Hood appears at the club asking for a favor to help him and his lover Cora D flee the country to Canada, Barb suddenly finds herself to be key player on high political stage. Now she has to take sides.Written by

One last chance, Charlie. Where are the rental lenses?
The Easter Bunny took 'em!

Please... stop! I'll talk! This guy has them. I gave the lenses to this guy.
This big guy. He's big and fat. He has a white beard, he wears a red suite, he lives at the North Pole... and he goes by the name of Kringle. Kris... Kringle.

Original German video retail version was cut for violence (torturing of prisoners) to obtain a "Not under 16" rating. In 2010 the film was resubmitted to the FSK and this time the uncut version was rated "Not under 16". See more »
While Barb Wire isn't an Academy style good movie, it succeeds wonderfully at what it is: a comic book translated to film. It's over-acted and over-the-top, but it's supposed to be. It's great eye candy and lots of fun to watch. I think Pamela Anderson did a great job being a two-dimensional comic book hero - think Clint Eastwood spaghetti western with tight leather. Keep in mind what the film is trying to be and you'll have a great time.
