My girlfriend liked it just as much as I did (by Fox in Socks)
Cheese. The key to enjoying this movie is not take it seriously! Don't expect great art! It's based on a comic book, it's got guns and 'splosions and Pamela Anderson pre-reduction. Waddaya want, Ingmar Bergman? It entertained me, and I didn't have to use my brain once. I even bought a copy, it sits on the shelf between "Brief Encounter" and "Apocalypse Now". Its miles better than the dreadful "The Mummy" or the unspeakably bad "Independence Day".Okay, have a review. The plot is a shameless rip-off of Casablanca and makes no effort to <more>
hide it. It made me laugh, has some great dialogue, and is never actually slow. It's OBVIOUS that the cast and crew had a brilliant time making it, and that really shows on screen. Steve Railsback is brilliant, as is the uniformly excellent Udo Kier.And its got guns and 'splosions and Pam!
Not many actors stumble on a role that seems designed just for them. Barb Wire wasn't, as it was based on a comic book series. Yet Pamela Anderson was perfect for the role. I've never liked her in those ditzy roles as while she may not be the brightest girl on Earth, she just can't pull them off. She is far better in a serious possibly pretend serious role.No one else could have fit the role so perfectly and she really did a great job. Sure people will mock her for being who she is, but if you are open before seeing the movie, she will surprise you.This isn't all about <more>
showing off Pam's body who's fake boobs are not anywhere near as nice as they were before she had them done but is a decent comic book made into a dynamite film.Pam needs more roles like this and should steer clear of the ditzy role she seems to prefer playing. She's made for this. I'd go see any sequels for this film.An instant hit for anyone who likes the style of slightly corny comic book adaptations.
The guys who read this title will know what I'm talking about in this movie, "Barb Wire." Two words: Pamela Anderson. Yes, the same lady you might have seen on "Baywatch." With her, and the endless, numerous, totally exciting action scenes in "Barb Wire," this movie is the bomb! It's exciting! Breathless! Great! Makes even the shyest guy put a huge smile on his face! The next time you have a free night, then buy this DVD, get some snackage, and invite all the guys over to watch this movie! Seriously! Then afterwards, you can watch some football or <more>
basketball and watch some dancing action after that! Hint, hint! ;- An 11 on a scale of 1 to 10 action movie! Watch it today!
A superb film, even if you ignore the starting huge boob credits... this gal can act in a way I never knew she could..... she is SOOO fitted for this character.. the whole thing was brill... I must have seen it a dozen times, and I'm sure it won't be the last time... don't make any pre evaluations about Pamela... just see the film for what it is.. a great sci fi with a GREAT looker as a lead...
