"Don't call me babe!" scowls Pamela Anderson Lee, as she roves around Steel Harbor zapping agents of the Congressional Directorate. OK, providing you don't ask us to call this insulting reworking of Casablanca a film. Betraying his pop-video background with just about every shot, director David Hogan clearly isn't interested in storytelling, which is just as well as he doesn't have much of a tale to tell. Even amid the devastation of a second American Civil War, surely more will stand between the people and tyranny than magical contact lenses? Despite being treated like a computer generated cartoon, Pam takes it all in surprisingly good part.

Plot Summary

Sci-fi adventure starring Pamela Anderson Lee. In 21st-century America, an underground movement fighting the ruling fascists calls upon Barbara Kopetski, a mercenary who runs a roughneck bar, to help a prominent rebel escape to Canada.
