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.Written by

Each Ripper's make-up took about four hours to apply. Three technicians from Stan Winston's studio were required to work on each Ripper's articulations during filming; no puppets or digital effects were used for the Rippers. The actors said it was like wearing a couch. Ice-T never once complained. When asked why, he replied, "Better than prison". See more »
About 31 minutes into the film, Tank Girl slides under a stall to talk to Jet Girl. In the close-ups her head is near Jet Girl's feet. In the overhead shots, her head is a few inches from her feet. See more »
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.

Great fun and visually interesting, with some wonderful one-liners and buckets of attitude.
One of the best films ever based on a comic, Tank Girl should not be taken seriously, but it's enormous fun, and a badly needed send-up of all those testosterone-pumped action movies. Instead of the usual male buddies, you have two sassy young woman, while a genetically modified and not very bright kangaroo plays the part of the Bond girl. All the leads perform well, particularly McDowell as the villain, and the script has some great one-liners, even if the plot is pretty dumb (it's a comic, ok? Get over it.)
