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
Pamela Anderson had previously backed out of Miami Hustle (1996), a movie that she had already had a physical examination in preparation for, before starring in this film. She had given her reason as no longer wanting to do sex scenes after her "Horrible experience" on the set of Raw Justice (1994). However, an attorney for production company The Private Movie Co. pointed out that she later participated in the "Twice as graphic" sex scenes in Naked Souls (1996) and really just wanted to do a bigger budget, higher profile movie like this instead. A Judge ultimately ruled against The Private Movie Co.. See more »

Colonel Pryzer. Alexander Willis, Director of Police Operations. Welcome to Steel Harbor.
Wipe that smile off your face, Willis! This burned-out hellhole is the last place on Earth I want to be right now. And if it wasn't for your almost complete incompetence, I wouldn't be here in the first place. Would I?
Yes, well needless to say I intended to have both Krebs and Cora D extraditcated and sent back to Washington by now. However, due to circumstances...

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)
