Movie Review: Tank Girl

Easily one of the strangest films I’ve ever seen, Tank Girl is a compelling viewing experience. Even if you’re thinking “This is the weirdest thing I’ve seen in a long time, and I don’t think I can like it”, you’re somehow still glued to it from start to finish.

I watched it last weekend, with my husband and my best friend, sitting around with wine and crisps, the perfect accompaniment to any movie. My main problem with it was that I just didn’t like Tank Girl. She was spoilt, irrritating, selfish and disloyal to the people who needed her. She spent the entire movie fucking up and not looking like she regretted it. She reminded me of an addict: “Nah man, it’s all good, life’s great, whatchya worried about? Oh that, that’s just an eviction notice.” Like she took all the serious things in life, didn’t care about any of them, and replaced the level of attention that should be given to them with just her own selfish drives. 

Having said that, I was kinda glad I’d watched it. Because, well, where else are you going to see giant kangaroo-human hybrids? 

Don’t go out of your way to see it, though.
