TANK GIRL

Part of Midnight Movies.

Set in post-apocalyptic, drought-ravaged Australia, years after a catastrophic impact event, TANK GIRL follows the titular antihero (Lori Petty) as she, Jet Girl (Naomi Watts), and genetically modified supersoldiers called the Rippers fight "Water & Power,” an oppressive corporation led by the evil Kesslee (Malcolm McDowell). This adaptation of the much-beloved comic series of the same name was a critical and commercial failure at the time of its release. In ensuing years, though, it’s gained a bit of a cult following for its intensely unyielding feminist themes and an iconic performance from Petty. A magnificent precursor to the current glut of comic movieverses, TANK GIRL serves as the perfect cure for your uber macho, heteronormative, misogynistic Hollywood blockbuster hangover.
