Plot Summary
The future has arrived, and it brings a world composed entirely of water, due to the melting of the polar ice caps. In this desperate society one must distill one's own urine for drinking water, and land is only a myth people dream of. Roaming the high seas is the Mariner, a surly, selfish man/fish mutant with no name. But his loner existence changes when a woman named Helen and an orphaned girl named Enola save his life, and the Mariner reluctantly agrees to take them along with him. At first the Mariner has a rocky relationship with his two passengers; then he realizes that the tattoo on Enola's back is a map leading to the never-seen "Dryland". But as the trio struggles to decipher the map, they must also try to escape a band of filthy, reckless thugs known as "Smokers", led by the maniacal, one-eyed Deacon. Then the Smokers kidnap Enola, turning the Mariner into a one-man killing machine desperate to rescue his human map.| And only if he succeeds will they ever know the feel of solid ground beneath their feet.

Professional Reviews

"...A 2 1/4-hour aquatic pursuit pic with bruising stunts, fun-to-watch performances, a dozen good chortles and imposing Panavision renderings of post-apocalyptic crud....[WATERWORLD] clearly has the makings of a cult movie..." -- 3 out of 4 stars 07/28/1995 p.1D

Entertainment Weekly 8 of 10
The hero, a sci-fi seaman known as the Mariner (Kevin Costner), spends so much time leaping in and out of the ocean deep that you may feel like toweling him off and buying him a blow-dryer. In Waterworld, the polar ice caps have melted, covering the earth in an ocean of unbroken vastness. The film is nothing if not a triumph of large-scale action-adventure logistics. Its woozily off-kilter atmosphere effectively creates the sensation that water is the closest thing there is to solid ground. At the same time, this rather ponderous popcorn movie is such a brazen knockoff of The Road Warrior that it's as if George Miller's future-shock demolition classic had been remade inside the world's biggest bathtub. Costner's surfer-bum affectlessness works here; he turns the Mariner into the world's most jaded lifeguard. - Owen Gleiberman

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
The cost controversy aside, ""Waterworld"" is a decent futuristic action picture with some great sets, some intriguing ideas, and a few images that will stay with me. It could have been more, it could have been better, and it could have made me care about the characters. It's one of those marginal pictures you're not unhappy to have seen, but can't quite recommend...It's said ""Waterworld's"" first cut was a good deal longer than its final 120-minute running time, and you can sense that occasionally, as when the Mariner fights off an attack by the Smokers and then immediately takes Helen on the trip beneath the sea, when it seems the Smokers must still be in sight. But basically the movie plays smoothly as a combination of chases, fights, bizarre locations, special effects, and the cold, distant, slowly thawing behavior of Mariner toward his passengers. I'll remember some of the sights in ""Waterworld"" for a long time. But I won't necessarily want to see them again. - Roger Ebert
