Tank Girl poster

Back when comic book adaptations were actually fun. Tank Girl is cult cinema with a capital C. I'm pretty surprised the film never crossed my path because it's the kind of wacky I tend to go for, but the low ratings everywhere probably kept it off my radar. I'm glad I still managed to catch up with it, even if I'm extremely late to the party.

The future Earth is a wasteland, and water has become the most precious material. It is controlled by some power-hungry men working for a mega-corporation, but Tank Girl loves a good challenge. She wants to overthrow them, which is easier said than done. Together with a band of misfits, she's willing to take the gamble.

The designs are outrageous, the film's comic book roots are embraced rather vigorously and the kitsch levels are high, though everything is handled with a big old wink and smirk. Tank Girl is pure fun, a bit unpolished, and rough around the edges by modern standards, but a real hoot if you like your films a tad weird.
