  If you don't take your films too seriously, you'll love it

| | See all JackRabbitSlims's reviews (5)

One thing not to do to help you decide if you're going to buy this film is to watch the trailer. It portrays the film as a serious, post-apocolyptic epic. In actual fact, the film is about cartoony characters in an over the top adventure.

It's an action packed sci-fi which is cheesy in parts, but if you're willing to go along with that, it just adds to the fun. Essentially, that's what this film is - fun.

If play.com has got a good price on this DVD,I'd recommend you buy it.

  One of the legendary Dennis Hopper's best performances

| | See all Widescreen's reviews (4)

This was unfairly maligned when it was first released. It's actually a very underrated and spectacular action-adventure movie and it features one of the best villainous performances from the late, legendary Dennis Hopper. For just 2.99, you can't go wrong.

  Great film

I have seen this film many times so I have just decided to buy it. Apparently it had a bad review upon release but who said the oppinions of the critics are always right? For a science fiction fan like me this makes a great addition to the DVD collection. I recommend at least watching it if you haven't already.

  Waterworld

| | See all goose777's reviews (14)

I have watched this so many times on tv. Its the type of film you can watch again and again. Its very entertaining. Theres loads of action and good acting. Its like a cross between Mad Max and Planet of the Apes but on the sea. Apparently it was a flop, but its better than alot of those supposed top films I have seen. I really like it.

  A Wonderful World.

For me, Waterworld is like being assaulted by a friendly weapon. After all the bad publicity you approach it with trepidation, only to find the whole thing quite enjoyable. It rips off every post apocalyptic movie you can think of without shame - step forward Mad Max - and then some. There is plenty of action, explosions and a heaving cast of grunting, expendible neanderthals to be dispatched by Kevin Costner`s mysterious "Mariner". It`s a soggy biscuit, but very entertaining.

Waterwold is one of my all time favs, and when it was first released it got slated to hell, but yet I found it exciting.

I am just watching it again and although the fanasy element is there, there is so much factual stuff that is just rubbish.

1) How does Dennis Hopper know about what happend to the Captain of the oil ship when he is 50 - 60 and he said centuries ago to his picture.

2) How did the girl have a tattoo on her back when the equipment would have been lost years ago.

3) How did she get from the place she was born to the atoll?

If you havent got a brain and just love action like I have for years on end, you wll not think about this, if you do have a brain then you might find this a total waste of time.

Still if you want some escapisim, this is the film for you.

  Classic Kick A** Action

| | See all Deanmachine's reviews (3)

This is one of them films with classic action... If you can overlook slight flaws in the story line, you will love this film. This is for people who are fans of arnie and stallone etc.

Right one word especially springs to mind... different! That is why i gave this film a 3 star rating (decent) because its way out there!! Okay, its not this amazing epic and not even that believable, can't help pointing out many flaws while watching the film... but here is the kicker! Most films have flaws... what this film gives you is action and in a completely different enviroment then usual, clever idea for a story! Its not amazing but worth watching!!
