During the Second American Civil War in 2017, Barb Wire owns a nightclub called the Hammerhead. Things become complicated when her ex-lover Axel Hood, who is married to the fugitive Corrina Devonshire, re-enters her life.
The entire "Don't call me, Babe" leitmotif of Barb Wire comes from the original advertising for the Barb Wire Dark Horse comic book, in which she said those words to differentiate herself from a buxom, slightly airy comic book heroine named Babe by John Byrne.
Add it to my tab, Miss Kopetski. Boom boom boom!
Barb Wire: Barbara Kopetski died in the war. I'm Barb Wire.
When Barb is fighting Kreb's bodyguards, as she fights with the second one, she boots him to the floor, and them stands on his crotch. The bodyguard has blue suspenders on. In one shot one of his suspenders is unclipped and is lying across his body. In the next shot the suspender is now neatly clipped back onto his trousers. In addition the gray jacket he wears also changes position.
The opening credit sequence is one of the most famous in exploitation film history as Barb does a topless wet and wild dance as the credits roll.
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".
