Storyline

Tank Girl (Rebecca) and her friends are the only remaining citizens living in the wasteland that is Earth, where all the remaining water is controlled by Water and Power, the mega corporation/government that runs the territory. While incarcerated at W + P, Tank Girl and her new friend Jet Girl break out and steal... a tank and a jet. After meeting some mutant kangaroo/humans, and rescuing her little girl (adopted by her friends), the kangaroos and the girls kick Water and Powers' butt.

Quotes

[first lines]
Tank Girl: Listen up, cause I'm only telling you this once. I'm not bedtime story lady, so pay attention. It's 2033. The world is *screwed* now. You see, a while ago this humongous comet came crashing into the earth. Bam, total devastation. End of the world as we know it. No celebrities, no cable TV, no water. It hasn't rained in 11 years. Now 20 people gotta squeeze inside the same bathtub - so it ain't all bad.

My kingdom for the remote
27 November 2008 | by (America) – See all my reviews

I think I might have liked this movie more had I seen it in a different context. Had I been, for example, a twelve-year-old girl, it might have been great. But I'm a thirty-something-year old guy, so I thought it was a worthless piece of trash that made me want to smash nearby inanimate objects without regard for their monetary or spiritual value.

Tank Girl is an early exponent of the "Charlie's Angels - The Movie" school of film-making, a close cousin of the "Austin Powers" style: a series of short, horrible scenes, each of which begins with loud, bad-ass rock music that quickly fades out to some vomit-inducing dialog and ends with a painfully un-funny one-liner. Showing Tank Girl to war prisoners would be an effective means of interrogation, but would likely be a breach of the Geneva Convention.
