The movie stars Creator/PamelaAnderson Lee doing what she does best - running around with the minimal amount of clothing on, and the opening credits involve a prolonged scene with Pam wet-dancing on a trapeze. There's also no small number of other women wearing very little as well, but honest to god mom, look at all the explosions and Pam kicking the asses of all those men; it's just packed with female empowerment!

Anyway, apart all the boobage - err, the explosions - this was Pam's attempt for her to bridge her career from television to film. And quaint as seeing her toting vast amounts of guns in skin-tight black leather is, it kinda failed. It has earned its reputation for completely ripping off the plot of ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' in a way that makes ''Film/OverdrawnAtTheMemoryBank'' look like ''Film/CitizenKane'' (to stretch a metaphor beyond the point of logic). Has been SnarkBait for [[http://www.agonybooth.com/recaps/Barb_Wire_1996.aspx many]] [[http://channelawesome.com/nostalgia-critic-barb-wire/ a reviewer.]]

* ActionGirl No matter how much of Pam got showed off, Barb Wire is definitely a hard-up, bad-ass action girl to be proud of.
