In the future, the Earth is engulfed with water when the polar ice caps melts, leaving the lands and civilization beneath the sea. In “Waterworld” drifters sail across the waters of the world on their man-made ships, trading for supplies and salvaging what is left of civilization.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
If some movies are so bad that they become good this might as well be a candidate. Pure fun. Jetbikes all over a post-apocalyptic ocean world. The quest for land. Bad guys that love to smoke (?!?). Water and water all over. Mad max had roads, but a jetbike has 360 degrees of crazy. And the scarcity of fuel and the fight for it is the same. Cinema can be fun and pointless too. What the heck.
Sin duda, esta es la cinta la cual Kevin Costner va a arrepentirse toda su vida de haber hecho. Este enesimo recalentado de Mad Max con un estratosferico presupuesto de mas de 200 millones de dolares (que, por cierto, no se ven por ningun pinche lado), logrò poner en numeros rojos y casi llevar a la quiebra a los Universal Studios, lo que provocò que el actor perdiera la confianza de los productores de Hollywood.
I can’t simply poopoo this much ambition. This may be projection but, Costner is a throwback to the man’s man director in the mold of Huston and Wellman. His vision is bold and bigger than life but not always perfected. True, Costner did not direct but he collaborated closely with partner and sometime co-director. Costner rethinks the western as postapocalypse and the lack of great action is what ultimately damns it
Kevin Costner doing "Mad Max on water". It is not as bad as some wants it to be as it has excellent production values and some colorful characters, but the film never surprises and has lackluster action and an annoying kid supporting the action. The film also have several loose ends that should have been better addressed in a very hit-and-miss production.
