Product Description

Amazon.ca

Let's be honest: this 1995 epic isn't nearly as bad as its negative publicity led us to expect. At the time it was the most expensive Hollywood production in history (it had a Titanic-sized $200 million budget), and the film arrived in theaters with so much controversy and negative gossip that it was an easy target for ridicule. The movie itself, a flawed but enjoyable post-apocalypse thriller, deserves better. Waterworld stars Kevin Costner as the Mariner, a lone maverick with gills and webbed feet who navigates the endless seas of Earth after the complete melting of the polar ice caps. The Mariner has been caged like a criminal when he's freed by Helen (Jeanne Tripplehorn) and enlisted to help her and a young girl (Tina Majorino) escape from the Smokers, a group of renegade terrorists led by Dennis Hopper in yet another memorably villainous role. It is too bad the predictable script isn't more intelligent, but as a companion piece to The Road Warrior, this seafaring stunt-fest is adequately impressive. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Waterworld as it was meant to be seen Feb. 1 2011
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Waterworld(released July/95) stars Kevin Costner in his co-produced epic of life after the big warming;global warming that is.This is the newly released two disc version giving us the original theatrical version(2 hrs,15m)and a new extended directors cut(2hrs,57m).The topic here has certainly come back into vogue since the movies inital release and should be of special interest for those who philsophically lean in that direction.Pilloried at the time by critics,I have always thought either Costner wasn't living up the standards set by the critics at the time,it was bad timing or a little of both.It certainly was NOT a bad movie,but while not a great movie,it does have a nice flow,plot and grand look that deserved a much better reception in /95.We now get to see it the way it was meant to be seen.
The story is set in the future and the Earth's ice caps have melted,drowning most of the land and creating a world of water,whose remaining inhabitants live a catch-as-catch-can type of life on whatever floats.Our protagonist(Costner)called the Mariner,lives/travels on a large trimaran by himself periodically passing others in all types of sailing vessels.Clean water and earth/dirt are expensive and prized commodities in this future and as such are not something to be flaunted about foolishly as there are those that would take and kill for them like Slavers and Smokers(both pirates of a sort).Every so often one will come upon floating "cities" called Atolls at which time one can trade or barter what one has for items of neccesities.
The Mariner comes upon one of these floating round enclaves and enters it.He has dirt to offer and he is rewarded handsomely.

Let's face it, it was a step back. No, five steps back. The plot is unappealing, characters are shallow, and acting - except for Kevin Costner's - is dull. First fifteen minutes created very depressing mood and if it was not for Costner, I would have turned it off. Two stars only for the main character and his energy that he put in this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flood the world, bring it on! Feb. 24 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The premise of this video is flawed; if all the ice in all the glaciers of the whole world were to melt, sea level should only rise about 300 feet...that would be bad enough. Suspending disbelief for the show, though, the thought is intriguing. What if the whole world flooded, and just the tallest mountain peaks were still dry? So much of what we depend on, is land based, and the planet is 3/4 water right now. The story line pits ''the Smokers'' against what's left of the population, because they feel that they represent progress....The smokers are up against a time limit though; they're rapidly running out of fuel and may have only 3 or 4 month's worth of fuel left. All could be salvaged if they can find the way to some 'dry land' somewhere and start over again. The story is not actually about the smokers however, but more about the other people on the planet, including one slightly mutated 'mariner' on a tri-maran, and a young girl with a mysterious tatoo on her back, that together may lead the way to a paradise-like 'dry land' The story is not too far off from being a parable of our own times...with the threat of global warming...we seem, as a population, to be more intent on better mobile phones than on concern about what the planet will look like in another couple hundred years, how we could possibly function without oil....or why the Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica is important.... WE are the 'Smokers' in this video. It's a much criticized video...that should have been interpreted as a call to 'wake up'.
The version that I bought was the extended version, that was also cleaned up a bit....no cuss words and some graphic death scenes were deleted. Entertaining in spite of that....and it makes me want to go out and buy a tri-maran..LOL

Ca faisait longtemps que je le cherchais. J'aimais beaucoup ce film quand j'étais petit. Bien content d'avoir trouvé même si ce n'est pas la version longue.

4.0 out of 5 stars What about the smokers? May 15 2013
By MarkP
Format:DVD
Personally I rather liked the film. My only real complaint was the idea of the smokers. After all the story clearly indicates that earth/dirt is so valuable in this imaginary world. So where do the smokers get their tobacco?

5.0 out of 5 stars Why do people hate this film? Jan. 18 2004
Format:DVD
I regard this movie as the ultimate escape. It's exotic, tropical and the 'seascapes' are simply stunning. I guess it's popular to hate Waterworld. But for what reason? Okay, so it never made as much money as Universal wanted, but it's all up there on the screen and it DID make a profit. It's not the flop everyone thinks it is.
I found Kevin Costner to be actually quite effective as the (fish) man with no name (they only refer to him as 'The Mariner' a couple of times) and Dennis Hopper is simply great as the bad guy, much better than he was in Speed.
The action is very exciting and tho it's far-fetched and ridiculous it never fails to entertain. Bizarrely enough, the best scenes of the film are the quieter scenes aboard the Catamaran. It's here that a certain mood takes effect and the entire pace changes. This is aided by James Newton Howard's breath-taking score. I'd seriously recommend hunting down the soundtrack CD to this one.
It's a shame the 3-hour cut is not available on DVD (explaining what became of Mount Everest) but this 135 minute version is all we have at the moment. Tho this particular DVD features an outrageous DTS 5.1 soundtrack in FULL BITRATE. The anamorphic 1.85:1 picture also looks superb.
