About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Has the makings of a cult movie. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A moderately successful guy's movie with both weak and strong elements where lots of things are brilliantly blown up and few things make any kind of sense. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 22, 2006

Rotten: Costner... is totally humorless and as dreary as the landscape he travels. And the uninspired and often inane dialogue in Peter Rader and David Twohy's script doesn't help. – Dolores Barclay, Associated Press, Jun 12, 2018

Rotten: Waterworld isn't Fishtar, but Kevin Costner's pricey, post-apocalyptic sloshbuckler isn't a seafaring classic either. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Jul 17, 2002

Waterworld Review

This was a great movie. It deserves it's 5 stars. From what I've read online, the movie was very costly to produce. It's definatly a good movie and I say you should give it a chance by atleast renting it or buying it. Your money will not be wasted. Christopher C.
