| Proper expectations
While Barb Wire isn't an Academy style good movie, it succeeds wonderfully at what it is: a comic book translated to film. It's over-acted and over-the-top, but it's supposed to be. It's great eye candy and lots of fun to watch. I think Pamela Anderson did a great job being a two-dimensional comic book hero - think Clint Eastwood spaghetti western with tight leather. Keep in mind what the film is trying to be and you'll have a great time.

Quotes

Barb Wire: Come again?
Stripper in Dressing Room: She's Chinese.


Goofs

When Barb goes to see Big Fatso with the lenses, she's got three ammo belts over her shoulders. The one over her right shoulder is under the two that are over her left shoulder meaning that she'd have to take off the two that are over her left shoulder before being able to take off the one that's over her right shoulder. Then Willis arrives with the Congressionals and he tells her to drop her weapons. When he tells her this, the ammo belts have switched places. The one that was over her right shoulder which used to be under the other two ammo belts is now over the other two ammo belts. Then in the next shot, as she's dropping her weapons, the ammo belts return to where they originally were.


Crazy Credits

A scene of an additional longer opening title sequence, which is just a longer video of Barb Wire dancing topless, following in the credits.


Alternate Versions

Original German video retail version was cut for violence (torturing of prisoners) to obtain a "Not under 16" rating. In 2010 the film was resubmitted to the FSK and this time the uncut version was rated "Not under 16".
