Two bad-girl comics of the late 1980s/early 1990s were made into feature films in the mid-1990s to somewhat lukewarm financial results. Only one of them was artistically worth considering, while the other one had a lot of Pamela Anderson’s enhanced cleavage. The Great Superhero Movie Rewatch looks at Barb Wire and Tank Girl.
Well, okay, Steve Railsback can act—he plays Pryzer—but he doesn’t bother to do so. The climax when Pryzer, after being controlled and calm the entire movie, suddenly starts cackling like a loon in his final confrontation with Barb may be the most embarrassing moment of Railsback’s career (and I say this acknowledging that he starred in Lifeforce).
