I will never understand why this movie got bad reviews from the people that make a living from giving reviews.
I enjoyed it, everytime I watched it.

I like the actors, I like the concept, I like the ending.

A 90s action movie with plenty of booms and heroic stunts set in a future where sea levels rose (unbelievably?) high. The storyline could be considered pretty standard (guy saves special girl mixed with a quest for "land").
The understated underwater sequence is still a confronting possibility of what humanity might be presented with in the centuries to come, so even 20 years later it still has a message to tell, even if it doesn't tell it as convincingly.

A great adventure film for teens

the marvelous sets are the main reason to see it, and it's just as much an ethereal experience as a simple post-apocalyptic film.

To me this is a underrated film. Sure it had a lot of hate with the critics and people at the time, and it was the biggest budget film made at the time, and it didnt come close to making its money back, which is a shame, because I honestly thought it was a entertaining film. The acting was decent, though it was over the top a few times, it still did its job at telling a entertaining and interesting story. Sure it has a few plot holes and some pretty stupid characters, but that doesn't mean its a horrible film. Also the musical score for the film was fantastic, especially the beginning song which sounded like an african kind of song. Its also interesting in the film how in the film you see how everything works in this world, like how a boat works, or how a plane works, which I honestly thought was pretty cool to watch and see how this world worked.

Don't get me wrong, this is not a good movie but it isn't a complete disaster. The scope of the production is impressive and there are solid action sequences. If they'd spent more time on the screenplay and had a better lead actor this might have worked.

This movie got a bad rap for dumb reasons when it came out. It was ok.

Saw it in the theater & loved it. Watched it again today for Costner's birthday. Still love it. Imaginative & fun.

A very simple story stretched too thin with bad acting from everyone. Looks and sounds great though.

Definitely imaginative, the story just doesn't hold out that well overall. Kevin Costner does a particularly bad job at acting here too.

It's fascinating to me how these guys could be so dirty yet surrounded by tons of water. It was also disturbing how women were treated as merely sex objects to satisfy the "needs" of disgusting men.

My Favorite Science Fiction Film Of All Time Is 1968's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I have a weird affinity for worlds that are covered in water. This story was basically one of the first stories I came up with as a kid; people evolving gills, and webbed feet; swimming through algae covered underwater skyscrapers. Magical.

Sure, there's some huge plot holes and they don't seem to adhere to their own mythology throughout, but this is hardly the travesty most make it out to be. It's kind of silly, but it has a solid premise and some cool action setpieces.

Disappointed this movie has such low reviews I made a goddamn Rotten Tomatoes account to boost it's Stars. F****** classic you don't like Kevin Costner f*** you. People who don't like this movie don't have souls if you haven't seen this movie yet so I can watch it.

Its a cheesy film without a doubt. This movie really captured my imagination as a kid
