One of those cult cheese films you will either love or hate. In my case it's pure love... stinks of the 90's, absurd, funny and totally pointless. Class =)
What a fun, quirky little flick with good ole Lori Petty. I know loads of people bashed it, but it was a blast to watch. Actually, I would give it a 6.5, but the 7 balances out the other scores....
Wow...if it is possible for a movie to be on cocaine, then Tank Girl is Tony Montana. This is one of the strangest movies I have ever seen, and I really cannot decide if I love it or I hate it. The fuzzy-lovin stuff with the rippers kind of pissed me off, because they were supposed to be vicious, so I doubt they'd be like little kids. But Lori Petty was excellent as Tank Girl, and Naomi Watts as Jet. Malcolm McDowell did a great job as a nasty villain.
I laughed out loud at many points, and I think that's what the movie intended to do.
I'll have to watch this again, though, to determine whether I thought it rocked, or just sucked.
For now, I'll give it a barely fresh rating. But, as I said, time (and repeat viewings) will tell.
Tank Girl er basert p
Hey All...

ok, I went and got some movies... The ones listed above are the ones that I've watched/bought so far...

Alien vs. Predator wasn't the best movie, but it had an awesome ending! I thought the beginning was really rather boring and uninteresting. But after they all got into the Underground Pyramid and started looking around, it got good! I thought the "twist" at the end was really good... I giggled a little about it though... I ended up feeling sad for the Predators and wanted one of my own! :up:

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights was just plain wrong!! It absolutely sucked!! Like I said, they will NEVER better an original no matter how hard they try. It was predictable and boring... I hated it!

Resident Evil: Apocalypse was an EXCELLENT follow up on the original. Of course it wasn't as good, but I loved the way that everything just kinda fitted into the story that was told in the first one. Project Nemesis (Mack) would definately be something that I would NOT want to come across in a dark alley if I were a S.T.A.R. Team Member... :eek:

Tank Girl is one of my all-time favourite movies. As silly as it is and as un-realistic, it's still a classic and is one movie that I've always loved. I practically can say the movie word-for-word!!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is just pure shite!! I've never liked it and never will. First time I watched it, the only part that I laughed about was when she jumped up forgetting that she had a headset on, and fell over... Now that I watch it again... I don't find it funny at all and don't know why people like it so much... :down:

Anyway, stay in touch....

Cheers....

VHS First Viewing, 2 Talalay films seen

There is a certain charm to Tank Girl, but it is undoubtedly an intentionally bad film. And like many other films that are purposely campy, they are made more for the filmmakers than the actual audience. Sure, everyone making the film must have had a blast, but lots of times I felt as if I was left out of some greater inside joke - a joke that was funny at times, but not long enough to last 104 minutes. Perhaps I would have appreciated it more if it were twenty minutes shorter.
Tank Girl

This a must see film. Its has outsanding action scenes and great visuals. The Writers are comedic genus.

'The Plot' Its 2033 and theres no water, Only W&P "Water and Power" has the only water in the world, But there are two people are stand in W&P's way: The Rippers, and Tank Girl.

This is a wonderful and imagitive film. It's really seems thae the directer/writer brought the comic strip to life. This is really a great film, yet there are some problems. I've notice that during the fight scenes with the Rippers and the W&P Soldiers you can see the stunt wires connected to there backs. This just didn't happen once is happen quite a few times. To the DvD, its not great. Tankfully the film makes up for it. The Only special content they have is the Orginal traler for the movie.
Overall its a Buy.

Final Score: 9 out of 10
I absolutley loved this movie, it's one of my favourites! One of the best comic book movies out there.

Watch it and make your own decision, I won't nag you for choosing to like it or not. Naomi Watts was so cute in this, as well, and the soundtrack rocks. Lori Petty is a funny broad, as well.

Tank Girl rocks!
A Zip.ca rental.

Now, I know this is a well-known flop. And I agree, it is bad. This discussion will be why it was bad, because I am of the opinion that it had a lot of really cool elements, and could easily have been pretty good (odd, but good).

I liked Lori Petty as Tank Girl. I liked Naomi Watts as Jet Girl (she was so cute). I just think that Tank Girl could have had a bit more depth. They kill her lover at the beginning, and it doesn't effect her at all.

I loved the colours, I loved the weird kangaroo character, I loved the overall oddness.

I think what really killed it were the song numbers. Why have songs? It just destroys it. They don't advance anything. Why?

The Opinion: truly as bad as is claimed.

This is another one of those weird films that no one has ever heard about that I watch. I mean, Tank Girl has more User reviews this time, but only by 5. Also it doesn't help that Tank Girl is 11 years old. Yeah, what are the odds? The only reason why I picked Tank Girl up, is because I saw it on the floor at my friends house. A sign of worth? Nah, it's not that bad, well...


Tank Girl is one of those films that is an obvious piece of crap, but you find the good in it's badness. You know? Tank Girl is a good bad film. If that makes any sense. But anyways, Tank Girl has a plot that I haven't seen before. The plot is one of the reasons why I liked the film as much as I did. But it's also one of the film's faults. I mean, how good can the special effects be in a 1995 film? Yeah, you could only imagine. Hell, at least it's better than Highlander.


There was this one invention in Tank Girl that I thought was really interesting. You like, stab it into someone's back and it sucks all of the water out of the person's body. Oh, silly me. I forgot to tell you the plot. Um, a comet hit Earth. It's 2033, and there is no water. And this big company called Water & Power (No Shit?), has control over all of the water in the world. Well ,like 90% of it. The other 10% is where Tank Girl lives.


Tank Girl, as a character is a lot of fun to watch but it gets grating sometimes. Or a bit annoying, if a bit redundant. Some situations she gets into are so fake that it takes a bit of effort to actually keep watching the film. Don't get me wrong, Tank Girl does have some good things going for it, but I think if it were made today with updated technology, it could have been a hit. That's what sequels are for. I mean, Basic Instinct got a sequel


As I watched the beginning credits, I saw Naomi Watts' name. I was like "She's in this?" I was so excited. She was so amazing here. Not as a character, but just seeing her 11 years ago was exciting. I didn't know she has acted this long! Tank Girl is one of those lovingly bad films that you could watch over and over again. While you watch it over again, you make fun of it at how dumb it is. That's how I'm going to remember Tank Girl.



Should You Watch It? Seriously, no. But if you have had a few drinks, go for it
