There is only one free city left, Steel Harbor, headquarter for the resistance. This is the hometown of Barb Wire, owner of the night club Hammerhead. As times aren't good, Barb has a second job.

When Barb goes to see Big Fatso with the lenses, she's got three ammo belts over her shoulders. The one over her right shoulder is under the two that are over her left shoulder meaning that she'd have to take off the two that are over her left shoulder before being able to take off the one that's over her right shoulder. Then Willis arrives with the Congressionals and he tells her to drop her weapons. When he tells her this, the ammo belts have switched places. The one that was over her right shoulder which used to be under the other two ammo belts is now over the other two ammo belts. Then in the next shot, as she's dropping her weapons, the ammo belts return to where they originally were. See more »
first of all, i rated this film a 7 but not on a normal film scale. no, i rated it this on a cheesy so-bad-it's great level and in that respect this movie is well done.
first of all, Pamela Anderson literally looks like a barbie doll in this so a little typecasting is evident. she delivers her lines like a cyborg at times, she has a hard time keeping her fantastically huge breasts in her outfit during the film's 'action' scenes and the plot is, believe it of not, a ripoff of Casablanca!!
the rest of the actors deliver their lines in a tongue in cheek fashion that suits the film's cheesy and overdone demeanor.
the good thing is is that much of the dialogue is unintentionally hilarious and the use of slow motion is used during action scenes to highlight some unusual things (rent it to find out what i mean.)
a classic in the so-bad-it's-good genre and a showcase for how if you're going to make a bad film, put all your heart into it and pile the cheese until it's extra high.
rating:7 (on a cheese level) 3 (on a legitimate movie scale)
