Storyline

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 Oliver Heidelbach

Trivia

Although the film seems to contradict itself about what year it is set in (the year is twice said to be 2017, but later given as 2019) it is of course possible that over a year could have passed between the scene of Barb looking out at the city from the car and the torture scene. See more »

Goofs

When Cora D and Axel are hiding in the back of the car and two people are driving them, the cops then pull in, surrounding them, and the car's wipers are clearly on. But later in the scene, between shots, the wipers are suddenly off. See more »

Quotes

[Col. Pryzer is torturing Charlie with electric shocks]
Coloney Pryzer: One last chance, Charlie. Where are the rental lenses?
Charlie Kopetski: [defiant] The Easter Bunny took 'em!
[Charlie is hit with more electric shocks and he screams in pain]
Charlie Kopetski: [in agony] Please... stop! I'll talk! This guy has them. I gave the lenses to this guy.
Coloney Pryzer: What guy?
Charlie Kopetski: 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.

not that bad
26 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

This movie is not as bad as people say it is. it has some value that we can learn from. first, now we know that artificial boobs can be looks quite entertaining,so, for those who has second though of having plastic surgery to had their boobs enlarged, they can be safely doing it now. second, now we know where CASABLANCA got the story inspired from. the third and the last.we shouldn't under estimate a blonde big boobs chicks because who knows maybe they can kick the hell out of your butt before you know it. that's my comment for this artificial good piece of art movie.for those who hasn't watch this movie yet, don't doubt. if you found it at your nearest movie store, borrow it, buy it, if you don't have enough money, rob it!
