It isn't that bad. In fact, it's quite good. Not $200,000,000 good, but
a nice flick nonetheless. That's the best way to describe Waterworld,
the most expensive movie in the history of Mankind.
|Stars:||Kevin Costner, Dennis Hopper|
The story hovers
around a world covered in water when a comet melts the polar ice caps.
Although I don't believe there is enough water contained in the polar
caps to raise sea level to such an extent, it is an interesting
premise. Kevin Costner plays Mariner, a mutated man with webbed toes
and gills. I do not think I need to delve into the storyline, as that's
what all the other reviewers do. I am different, but hey, different is
good. And so is this movie.
Quite frankly, it is not worth 200 million
coconuts. 100 million, it could get away with. Stargate cost 100 mil
and Waterworld is a better movie than Stargate, albeit slightly.
Compared to the second-highest costing movie, True Lies, Waterworld is
nothing. And True Lies cost only, what, $155 million? Waterworld has
some elaborate sets, (well, only two, the rest of the movie is water) but,
fortunately, the movie doesn't rely on these sets. Instead, it blows the
shit out of them. I enjoyed this movie. And, if you pay no attention to
the enormous cost, you should too.
