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.
Although the film seems to contradict itself about what year it is set in (the year is twice said to be 2017, but later given as 2019) it is of course possible that over a year could have passed between the scene of Barb looking out at the city from the car and the torture scene.
What are you doing here?
Barb Wire: Looking for a light. Got one?
Manny: I don't smoke.
Barb Wire: Neither do I.
When Barb rappels down the wall on a rope after rescuing the girl, before they go out the window, you can see Pamela Anderson's roots showing, where she hadn't colored her hair. In the next scene, viewed from above, it is obviously a stunt person wearing a blonde wig, as there are no roots showing.
A scene of an additional longer opening title sequence, which is just a longer video of Barb Wire dancing topless, following in the credits.
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".
