From Back Cover:
Kevin Costner stars in the most anticipated movie of the year: a turbo-charged action-adventure epic, unmatched in sheer excitement and heart-pounding suspense.
In a future where Earth is covered with water, the human race struggles to survive on dilapidated boats and makeshift floating cities called atolls. But some still cling to legends of a mythical placed called "Dryland." Seeking clues to its whereabouts, the evil Deacon (Dennis Hopper) attacks the atoll which houses young Enola (Tina Majorino) and her adoptive mother Helen (Jeanne Tripplehorn). When a mysterious drifter/adventurer known as the Mariner (Costner) is caught up in their struggle, he finds himself catapulted into an explosive war of good vs. evil with the open sea as his battlefield. Only later will he discover Enola's wondrous secret - a revelation that may change the destiny of all mankind.
With refreshing humor, groundbreaking special effects and awe-inspiring action sequences, Waterworld sets a glorious high-water mark for imaginitive, thrill-packed entertainment.
Though it was a box-office flop and has been panned by many a critic and movie-goer as one of the worst films ever made, it's actually pretty entertaining.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
