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 Company, 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 Company. See more »
When Barb says "Goodbye Axel," she puts on her motorbike helmet in a side shot, and reflected in the helmet is the camera and crew members. See more »
You don't have to buy me a drink, Axel. I'm tight with the management here. You've got a lot of nerve coming in here.
I had no choice. Where's Barb?
I don't think talking to Barb's going to be such a good idea. She took what went on in Seattle a lot better then I did.
I need her help, Charlie. I need her to put me in touch with the local resistance.
Haven't you heard? Barb's retired. Leave... now... before Barb sees you. There's no telling what she might do.

A scene of an additional longer opening title sequence, which is just a longer video of Barb Wire dancing topless, following in the credits. See more »
Network TV version is heavily edited, where the opening credits are altered during the wet-and-wild sequence, especially where the semi-nude scenes (e.g. partial nipple exposure) are replaced with alternate shots. See more »
OK the critics dismissed this,and many call this a cheesy bad movie,all the Pamela Anderson haters,but me i thought barb wire rocked. its a good action movie,i think Roger Corman would envy,and yes Pam Anderson does look like a busty Barbie doll.she looks great.her acting is'nt great but who cares.its an action film.that follows the plot of Casablanca,believe it or not.Pam plays a variation of the Bogie character.Canadian actor Steve Railsback plays a Nazi type officer who runs around shooting people along with his Nazi like henchmen.i saw this originally in 1996 and did'nt really like it that much,i had re watched it recently and changed my mind.i know barb wire is mentioned on all these bad movie lists but its really pretty good.not a classic but a good action movie nonetheless.props to Pam Anderson playing a real kick butt heroine.7 out of 1o,just don't call her babe.
