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
