Based on Britons’ Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin‘s cult comic-strip, Lori Petty stars in director Rachel Talalay‘s wild, futuristic action-fantasy about a tank-riding anti-heroine.
In the year 2033 – when drought and pollution have turned the Earth into a desert wasteland – the planet’s water supply is controlled by a despotic company that is opposed by a few courageous rebels who regularly risk their lives to poach the precious fluid. With resources scarce, Kesslee (Malcolm McDowell) — head of the powerful and evil Water & Power Corporation, the de facto government — has taken control of the water supply. Unwilling to cower under Kesslee’s tyrannical rule, a pair of outlaws known as Tank Girl (Petty) and Jet Girl (Naomi Watts) rise up, joining the mysterious rebel Rippers to destroy the corrupt system. Also starring Ice-T and Iggy Pop.
