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.

Honestly, it's really not THAT bad

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.

Gosto desse filme e não entendo a nota tão baixa.

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 enjoyed this one despite the poor rating. Good cast and interesting story

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

An inventive, underrated and engaging cult classic with a lot to love. Plus, a lot of stuff gets blown up.

It seemed like an attempt at a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic film with a director not fully ready to delve into the "crazy" like a George Miller would. It shouldn't have been labeled a bomb though. It had a lot of strong points, but also many weak ones. Worth a watch by adventure and action movie lovers. Rating: 7.5 / 10

It's good movie to watch

Terrible boring but cool idea but doesn't pull it off movie starring Kevin Costner , some random lady who cannot act and she's only their to be eye candy and it does not work on me, I might be in a bad mood because on the first day of 2017 I saw 3 bad movies including this one. I was waiting to see this movie in anticipation and when I saw the live show at universal studios Hollywood, I loved the live performance but now all the hype leading up to see this movie, I'm very disappointed and when did this movie come out in the 90s, 2016 had a better version with better action and better acting than this movie did. I like Kevin Costner in this movie but he doesn't fit the part, the plot is cool waterworld , everything's water until the end of the movie wherev they of course find land. Waterworld to me is trying to be the opposite of mad max. Mad max has no water, just land and waterworld has just water no land. Their endings are similar too, they both find what they lack in their society, in waterworld land and in mad max, water. So it's a win win in the end for them but not the audience.

"Waterworld" is basically "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" mixed with a waterpark stunt show...and while the action things are goofy, big, bombastic and somewhat fun...they do not make up for the many long boring scenes in between of Kevin Costner telling people not to touch stuff on his boat. Movie failed to really capture me for the most part. A big expensive mess.
