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.
Now, where is Dr. Corrina Devonshire?
Woman in Torture Room: She's going to Steel Harbor, the free city.
Colonel Pryzer: Do you mind telling me why Cora D. is going to Steel Harbor?
Woman in Torture Room: She's meeting members of the Resistance. They're giving her the retinal lenses, helping her out of the ...

As the girl is being electrocuted on the table, her hair, which is spread out on the table, keeps changing position.
A scene of an additional longer opening title sequence, which is just a longer video of Barb Wire dancing topless, following in the credits.
For UK cinema the R-rated print was submitted and passed uncut with a 15 certificate. Video versions were raised to an 18 and featured the unrated print with additional footage of a topless Barb being hosed down during the opening credits. For DVD the R-rated print was again released, with the nude credits scene included as an extra on the disc.
