    The filmmakers must have known they were not making a good movie, but they didn't use that as an excuse to be boring and lazy. Barb Wire has a high energy level, and a sense of deranged fun.

    Despite its obvious flaws, Barb Wire does what it sets out to do and does it well.
  3. David Hogan keeps the action moving and loaded with fights, gun battles and other action-trashy thrills. Lee is terrific.
  4. 70
    Lee elevates herself from the lower echelon of mere international super-babedom to the loftier realm of pulp myth. She is "It" with an exclamation mark.
