    It's a comic book movie in the broadest sense of the term, and although it's neither as emotionally resonant as "The Crow" nor as surreally goofy as "Tank Girl," Barb Wire still manages to get you going, Anderson Lee fan or not.
  2. This rusted-future comic strip comes at you in shards -- exhaustingly derivative images of mayhem and titillation, with Lee, in her bad-girl bondage gear, as its blank vixen. If you didn't call her babe, she wouldn't exist.
  3. Ought to be disreputable fun. Instead it ends up, all its explosions and exposed flesh notwithstanding, rather inert.
  4. Isn't much when it comes to either deliberate or inadvertent humor. But it does have a few amusing moments.
  5. Its main source is a comic book, but it might as well be a computer.
