It is 2033 and there is no law, mercy or (most importantly) water. Tank Girl (Lori Petty) is a sexy, smart and outspoken warrior woman who decides to take on allcomers in an attempt to liberate enough water for the population. The villainous Kesslee (Malcolm McDowell) decides destroying Tank Girl is the easiest way to retain the monopoly on precious water supplies, but he hasn't reckoned on Tank Girl's loyal sidekick Jet Girl (Naomi Watts), or a troupe of mutant kangaroos...
In Tank Girl, director Rachel Talalay's aggressively hip adaptation of the cult comic book, it is 2033 and the earth has been clobbered by a comet; civilization has been destroyed, and it hasn't rained in 11 years. Nearly all the water on the planet is controlled by the evil Water and Power Company, which is in turn controlled by the even more evil Kesslee (Malcolm McDowell). Who stands in the way? Mysterious mutants called the Rippers and, of course, Tank Girl. Lori Petty plays the eponymous, wisecracking, defiant heart of the movie as kind of an inner child gone wild. Unfortunately Petty can't quite carry a movie on her own--her zingers frequently fall flat and she seems to be continually worried that we still like her. Luckily there's Naomi Watts as Jet Girl to save the day: smart, shy and inherently way more appealing than Tank Girl. For all it lacks, Tank Girl is visually an eye-popper, worth watching for the insane set and costume designs alone. --Ali Davis, Amazon.com

This film does not set out to be something which requires immense brainpower to take in, it's just there to provide enjoyment. This is a film that you do not have to think about, it's bright, fun, has stunning visuals, a great soundtrack and all in all something to chill out in front of.
If you don't take things to seriously and just want a fun action film to watch then Tank Girl might just appeal to you. I know that many out there hated this film but I really enjoyed it and think that Lori Petty is absolutely awesome.
Tank Girl; try it, you might like it!
The first half of the film was quite good in a tongue in cheek knockabout way. Reasonably amusing and a bit fun. The second half of the film was diabolically bad and lost it's way big time. It downfall started with the introduction of the Kangaroo people, they were awful their dialogue, their acting the way acted as characters was corny, cringeworthy and embarrassing. They also looked really stupid and when they started to do some stupid dance I was laughing at the embarrassment I was witnessing on my TV screen. The plot became ludicrous after that and a complete mess. Lori Petty in the lead role of Tank Girl got a lot of stick for her acting, but I think she was told to act in that fashion not to take herself seriously and I wasn't bothered by her performance in the film, I will say that at the start her accent wavered between an American accent and an Australian one, which is poor but maybe the film was confused as to where it was set, most of the rest of the cast spoke with Australian accents. Malcolm McDowell as the villain was on auto Pilot keeping his English accent a stereotype and cliche of Hollywood villains, he was neither bad nor good in the role.Read more ›
True it isn't 100% like the comic, but then again, which film is ever 100% like the comic or book???
The soundtrack is cool and easy to sing along to! The costumes are wicked (Tank Girl is great to dress up as for a Fancy Dress party as my best friend Jeni will testify to!!)and the story is weird and wonderful!
A must for anyones DVD collection as it is a great fun film!
Watch and prepare to laugh your head off throughout!
Top flick (from one who has over 200 videos/DVD's!!)
Ok, So if you're looking for a complex plot then don't bother. But if you're looking for a bit of fun then this is up you're street. Petty handles her in-your-face heroine brilliantly and MacDowell appropriately hams up the evil genius role. As far as comic book adaptations go, it could be better, and Tank Girl's character has been greatly toned down for the screen, but the short comic interludes between scenes more than makes up for it, as does the slick ending animation. And I also have to say this film has THE BEST soundtrack Ever, Ranging from the Bjork track playing in the nightclub to Ice T's 'Big Gun'.
So in short. Buy this. Then go and buy the Soundtrack
