Movie Info

A biological act of terror has been unleashed upon Los Angeles, and as the denizens of the West Coast metropolis are bombarded with news stories documenting the contamination of the city's water supply, turmoil grips the panic-stricken streets in director Ben Rekhi's dark speculative drama. With resources quickly shrinking and the stress of the terrified population reaching a breaking point, the face of humanity turns foul as civility takes a back seat to survival instinct and the only thing that counts is getting out alive.

This is definitely a film where style triumphs over substance.

[S]mart, nicely acted, and it looks great, far sharper and more stylish than its reported $1 million budget would lead you to believe it could be...

Even without terrorists, it seems, we may be our own worst enemies. Waterborne makes that point with a compelling, highly watchable story.

Full Review… | February 12, 2006

The action is kept up-close and personal, focusing on individuals instead of mass hysteria. This sense of immediacy brings the audience closer to the story.

Full Review… | April 19, 2005

It's like a realistically creepy episode of The Twilight Zone as written by a particularly colorful sociologist.

Audience Reviews for Waterborne


Like a splash of cold water to the face... this movie wakes you up to how easily society breaks down in time of crisis.

I really like Christopher Kennedy Masterson, but this is not one of his better films. It's very dark and depressing, painfully unrealistic, and really, for most of the movie, it's just a bunch of people screaming at each other. Not much action, not many redeeming qualities. I didn't care for this.

Terrorists have infected the LA water supplies, we watch three stories intertwine together. As the days go by without water these stories unravel. It's a good storyline but choppily put together. You began to wonder where the director is taking you, as he leaves information out and questions unanswered. It was very difficult to follow and the ending won't surprise you at all. www.what-to-watch.com
