Remember the old days, when Pamela Anderson Lee was still just a Playboy Playmate turned Baywatch babe? You know--back before the bootleg release of her infamous home video with then-husband and ne'er-do-well rocker Tommy Lee, at which time the whole world got to compare Pam's barely adequate acting chops with her formidable skill at fellatio? Yes, those were the days (1996, to be exact), when a movie like Barb Wire represented dubious progress for the busty blonde, who was determined to make as big a splash on the big-screen as she did in the world's most popular syndicated TV series. Set in the year 2017 when the Second Civil War is in full force, this sci-fi action thriller stars Pam in the title role--a leather-clad biker babe ("don't call me babe," she warns) who runs a nightclub in the last free city in America. The rest of country is controlled by the "Congressional Directorate," a dictatorial superpower which suspects Barb of trafficking in black-market contraband. That gets her into plenty of trouble (and a lot of cleavage-revealing costumes), and ... well, if any of this sounds even vaguely familiar, it's because this comic book-inspired movie is really just a shamelessly breast-enhanced variation on Casablanca, with Pam Anderson in the Bogart role. Taken for what it is, it's a brazen folly with action to spare, and as guilty pleasures go it's surprisingly enjoyable. What--you were expecting Oscar material? --Jeff Shannon

the world has been taking over by the Resistance police , basically the germans
they do as they want and they don't "NO" for answer, either give or tell them what they want
or you will be killed literally , on the spot, so , its stretch of the imagination everyone is scared of them!
but in this case,. Barb Wired" is her own women and is not scared of anyone, including the resistance
she left the strip bar and with what money she made, she opened her own bar"HAMMERHEAD"
in her bar, no stripping, just music and party's , if someone does not like it, she will personally make sure they are dealt with
when the bar is low on money she goes out and kills or whatever it takes to make the money she needs later on the resistance
searches her bar, and tears it to shreds, she lost every thing. so she finds out what they are looking for and without her knowing
its in her bar hidden under a table, her blind brother knows about it, but never tells her and he loses his life
because of it, once barb finds out , there is hell to pay, anyway, she gets what is being looked for
and she make a deal with " fatboy" and they eventually meet and he does the wrong thing and all hail breaks lose barb wire included
you have to watch to see what really happens and how it turns out,lots of gunfights and some nudity at the first of the show
very well told story and believable stunts in the movie, you must watch!!
The "unrated" DVD version is good enough with its picture and sound presentation and there are a few extras included, but essentially you must buy this if you like Pam, and her beauty overwhelms pretty much everything else here. B+
The one thing I hate about these Amazon reviews is so little is mentioned about DVD quality. In particular when it comes to Blu-ray vs the standard or previous issue of a movie. Isn't that what its about? Getting the very best picture of a movie? In this buyers mind. It is.
