Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Year is 2033. Earth has been clobbered with 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? Some mysterious mutants called the Rippers and, of course, Tank Girl. Lori Petty plays Tank Girl, the 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. Tank Girl is based on the comic of the same name, and it is visually an eye-popper. It's worth watching for the insane set and costume designs alone. --Ali Davis

Special Features

• Audio commentary with director Rachel Talalay and actress Lori Petty • Interview with actor Malcolm McDowell

5.0 out of 5 stars ultimate cult flick Jan. 9 2004
Format:DVD
how do I do this justice? Only in my Fellini days did I watch films more than once. I've watched this one 5 times and I'm still laughing, still relishing the humor. It unfolds easily... but it keeps unfolding each time I watch it and hasn't grown stale. I just watched it again and it drove me here to urge you - this is the best stuff! No cliche goes unexploited. social mockery? don't even start. ... just a comic book really.
sure. Try it. Totally fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Did I Miss Seeing This Before? June 5 2004
Format:DVD
Ok, it's not "The Godfather" or anything. Nothing much went into the acting or such things. It's just another crappy mid-90's action movie. Or is it?
Not even close. "Tank Girl" is not about quality, it's about attitude, and Lori Petty has attitude to boot. Her constant puns and jokes could come off as annoying, like they do in the Batman movies, which have ended up aging about as well as milk, but Petty really pulls it off, with her Gwen Stefani style, dirty mouth, and a seemingly endless stream of energy.
Plot (not like it matters) is as follows: 2033, there's nothing but endless sand. There's even a shortage of water! All that's left is in the hands of a huge, evil corporation. So, as it has been and always will be, wherever there's power, there's protest. Tank girl and her friends are out to bring down the company, but a surprise attack forces Tank Girl alone to go up against all of her oppressors.
The style never ends. From the awesome soundtrack (including 2 Bjork songs, and Portishead's "Roads") to a very cool animated sequence, "Tank Girl" is sure to dazzle viewers who enjoy funny, campy, avant garde films. GO TANK GIRL!

5.0 out of 5 stars spare me the critique April 24 2003
Format:DVD
If you're looking for the next amazing work of cinema... keep looking.. Tank GIrl is a FUN movie, that's it. I love the comics, and if you do too i'll warn you now... don't expect the movie to match the comics at all... but it is a fun movie, with lots of quotables and if you want a giggle, this will do it... people who pan it have a certain problem... no sense of humor :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Attitude is everything June 12 2002
Format:DVD
I loved this movie! Although, I must admit this probably says more about me than about the movie. Still, I am hard pressed to find anything not to like about "Tank Girl." I know people who dismissed this movie because they were familiar with the comic strip, but they also seem to dismiss just how well this movie was produced. The casting was great, the soundtrack was superb and original, and the incorporation of the comic strip with the movie seemed just right. "Tank Girl" has all the makings of a cult-classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not masterpiece theatere, but.. July 15 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Tank Girl (played convincingly by Lori Petty)is a fun grrrl action film.
Although the theme is supposed to be about human survival after a major geological/metorlogical nuclearish disaster, it pokes gender, and class relations.
A handfull of rich white men control the world's water supply with millitary force and apparently spend much of their leisure time at a girle club where all of the women (unsuprisingly) are altered to look alike) The women who ultimately engineer the saving idea are punkish (anarcha-feminists? ) who defy society expectations of what is appropriate for women.
Even though the graphic juxtapositions seem to be a cheap imitation of the comic book/reality style pioneered so well in the 1960's Batman TV series, and Ice T's inclusion in the cast, it is still a good story line.
I've seen this movie several times, and even though she is much less of a cultural compromise than Buffy (who also saves the world, but looks more conventional)Tank Girl rocks. When the movie came out, I was actually planning to streak my hair fushcia in homage to this great character.
The soundtrack (produced by Courtney Love) is also worth getting!

I made the mistake of not looking closely at the vendor. Didn't realize the DVD would be coming from Italy. Can't play the DVD on my player - keep getting the error "incompatible region". The vendor told me it can be played on a computer by switching the region to region 2. I can't find any place to switch regions - and get the error message that the "computer software is not compatible". I was going to return it but the postage will cost pretty much what I paid for the DVD! As well - I'm not even sure if it is in English - The jacket is in Italian. Tank Girl the movie 5 stars!!! One of my favorite cult classic films! Consumer beware - check where your DVD is being shipped from.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extras or no extras... I WIN!!!
As a DVD, it is lacking. If ever a movie begged to be "revealed" it is "Tank Girl". How someone ever got the budget to make this quirky movie is beyond me. A great sales job! Read more
