In 2033, justice rides a tank and wears lip gloss.

ATTEN SHUN! We've got a swell story to tell, so let's get started before the swelling goes down.

The year's 2033 and since a humongous meteor hit earth, the world just hasn't been the same. No Cable TV, NO WATER!!! A mega-villain, Kesslee (Malcom McDowell), the leader of Water & Power, holds the world in his grasp since he controls all the H2O down to the last drop... or so he thinks. Two colossal enemies stand in his way: (1) The Rippers — an army of half-men/half-kangaroo people whose sole purpose is to bring down the W & P, and (2) a chick with a tank and tons of attitude — a.k.a. Tank Girl (Lori Petty). With a chip on her shoulder and a grenade in her pocket, Tank Girl sets out to face off with the demented bad guy. So, Kesslee had better get a grip on reality and his water jugs, because when Tank Girl teams up with the Rippers (including rapper Ice-T) and sidekick Jet Girl (Noomi Watts), not even a run in her stocking is going to stop her from saving the planet.


"****! This movie kicks major butt!" —Jeff Craig, "Sixty Second Preview"

If you're into in-your-face visuals, outrageous action sequences, hip, alternative soundtracks and non-stop explosive laughs, you'll love this "rip-roaring power surge of a movie" (Elizabeth Pincus, L.A. Weekly).
