A nice flim with Pamela Anderson looks like she is bulk like a super woman.

Pamela Anderson wanted to act really tough in this flim and her role job is to be a secret agent like James Bond.

If you like girls who can ride a motorbike and wear a small black leather vest and punish people like the Punisher then this is for you.

This is a crime flim with the hotty Pamela Anderson which all the cast here is attractioned to her big breasts but again who wouldn't?

Better this with Pammy than anything with Daniel Craig.

On the whole, I agree with Edward Gorey that the movies went to hell around the time of 'The Jazz Singer'. We've gone from Mary Pickford to Madonna in just about - how long? Still, good and bad and dull and ponderous and pretentious movies keep on being made, and I enjoyed this in much the same way as I do 'Robocop' or 'The Terminator'. It's superior comic-book stuff, fairly predictable, but with never a dull moment.

Barb Wire is a tongue-in-cheek action homage to Casablanca set in a post-apocalyptic future during the second American Civil War. It's FUN! That's all it's meant to be. That's all it is. (well, actually, it's also feminist, but too much analysis would kill the fun)

This film was good for a laugh, with its cheesy script and excuses to get Pam Anderson's clothes off! Worth it for a giggle.

I bought this blu-ray as I had a fond memory of this movie as a kid. It has a big boobed fabulous blonde starring, so it wasn't difficult to impress me back then.

I did not expect much from the film, you get what you imagine you get when you look at the cover. Pamela Anderson (Lee) in a tight black leather outfit or some other sexy dress parading throughout the movie acting tough.
The quotes in here are all bad-ass and some characters are right up there with stereotype designs.
I got my dose of wet topless Pamela swinging on a swing and the two second full nudity scene in the middle and enough laughs in the bad acting and ridiculous plot.
It is a cult classic. A C-level wanna be future action for the ages.

But I was fairly disappointed with the extra material on blu-ray or better say complete lack of it. There is movie, scene selections and subtitles, that's it.
Not even trailer, bloopers, behind the scenes, director's commentary. I was expecting a lot more from such 'great' film. But I can not complain because of the price.

I recommend it to you, if you are a huge Pamela Anderson fan. But if you want something extra, this is not for you.

I found the film fun and, despite the negative reviews, I never compared the film to Casablanca; it was just a average sci-fi with good lines and interesting caricatures. Strictly popcorn afternoon fare - but it beats many of the current movies on circuit.

Think there's over five mins of Pamela at the start with them showing and she is getting water splashed over here and all through the film she is flashing them.
After the start, your board of seeing them and the week story make it hard to keep watching.

Pamela Anderson Lee is Barb Wire, a bar owner who also is a fighter - she gets hired to wipe people out, put an end of infidels and other people the controlled society doesn't like. She's got the skills, and the proceeds go into her bar. Barb has all sorts of jobs, including pretending to be a call-girl and then wipe out the punter; which is done with immense style.
Barb gets a bit of an awakening when an old friend comes by and puts her faith back into mankind.

This is a stylish movie, very dark at all times (lighting and temprement), and has a dark sense of humour. Pamela Anderson Lee isn't bad in this, but at times she's a bit wooden. I think she loved this role because she could dress up in tight leather clothes and prance around with a gun; but when the more serious parts come along she does seem to struggle.

The storyline is very predictable, but it's not really that serious as movies go. This is one of those you can just watch without analysing it; it's got no sublime sub-plot or anything exciting, it's just straight fighting - and it's entertaining up to a point. I thought the scenes in the bar were dragged out, but otherwise it's an alright film.

Would rent rather than buy though, it's got no real elastic appeal.
