Product Overview

Kevin Costner, Dennis Hopper and Jeanne Tripplehorn star in a turbocharged action-adventure epic, unmatched in sheer excitement and heart-pounding suspense. In this futuristic thriller, Earth is covered with water and the human race struggles to survive on dilapidated boats and makeshift floating cities. Costner portrays a drifter who becomes caught up in the struggle between the evil Deacon (Hopper) and a child's secret key to a wondrous place called "Dryland." With refreshing humor, groundbreaking special effects and awe-inspiring action, Waterworld sets a glorious high watermark for imaginative, thrill-packed entertainment!

Review 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.

Review 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.
