This review is based on this specific release, not the film itself.
Basically, all Universal have done is repackage the existing WATERWORLD blu-ray. I mean, it is exactly the same. There is no additional content, it's not got the Extended Cut, there is nothing to distinguish this from the existing release - the menus are the same even the product coding on the discs: exactly the same!
Calling this a 20th Anniversary Special Edition is an utter FARCE. All you're getting is a different (and not as good) cover.
Sham, do not purchase.

I honestly don't understand what all the fuss is about. Why do people hate Waterworld? Why was it instantly disregarded before it was even released? When you really think about it, how much different IS Waterworld from the more recent Pirates of the Caribbean movies? They are quite similar if you think about it. Waterworld also cost $75 million less than the average PotC budget. But because those movies have Johnny Depp in mascara the whole world loves it! Hypocrisy!

With a lot of behind the scenes trouble (director Kevin Reynolds walked off the film and Costner had to finish the final third of filming himself) and negative pre-release buzz, everyone expected Waterworld to fail. Boasting a budget of £175 million (the most expensive ever until Titanic 2 years later) it was sure to be a flop, especially with the snooty public and critics blasting it before its release. Then, the unthinkable happened. Upon release, Waterworld actually managed to prove critic expectation wrong and be a good movie, receiving good (albeit ignored) reviews and finally earning a grand total of $255 million at the Box Office. This is before video, laserdisc, TV, DVD and Blu Ray sales. Does that sound like a flop to you?

The plot is far-fetched. Yes, but so is a plot involving fish-men, giant squids and Orlando Bloom as anything remotely masculine. But you accepted that quite easily. So just, for a minute, believe that if the polar ice caps DID melt that the world WOULD be covered in water. Set hundreds of years after this particular cataclysm, Waterworld follows the journey of The Mariner (Kevin Costner, who is only referred to a few times but never actually named), a man who is one step beyond human as he has the ability to breathe underwater and has webbed feet.

The production standards of this film are stunning, including a quarter of a mile wide floating artificial atoll constructed especially for the movie and regularly manoeuvred so it always pointed out to sea.
Kevin Costner is the Mariner, a mutant that can breath under water and lives on an astonishing trimaran controlled by complex lever and pulley mechanisms and other wonderful improvisations. He is later joined by Helen (Jeanne Tripplehorne) and Enola (Tina Majorino) a great performance from a ten year old girl.
The villain is Deacon (Dennis Hopper) and as a fan of his in other films I query his casting in this role, he is just too over the top for the rest of the film, the contrast is so great it brings an unfortunate taste of “Treasure Island” (including an eye patch) which jars.
However the environment of a world overwhelmed with water was not well thought out, some examples, where did all the petrol come from for the water skies, why is everyone so hungry when the seas must have been teaming with fish, the Mariner and Helen would have been crushed to death during the descent to the bottom of the ocean, with so much water why is there never aly rain.
With special effects, stunts and gadgets that are stunning, great photography and direction, this film is well worth watching if it takes your interest.

It was only after I'd seen the film that I was told how dreadful it was. I wish somebody had told me earlier - I feel dirty..and used. I realise now that I have thoroughly enjoyed this movie under false pretences.
I remember the days when a young(ish) Clint Eastwood grimaced his way through a whole bunch of dollars - more or less giving birth to the anti-hero - what a shot in the arm for the genre that was. So....imagine the same character with flippers and you're halfway there. Mind you, there's more than a referential nod to Errol Flynn, there's more swashing, buckling and derring do than anyone called Kevin really has a right to participate in, but he pulls it off with more aplomb than most. What's more, you never feel as though he's taking liberties - he plays the whole thing straight - which is quite something when you consider the size of the holes in the plot and the infernal nit-picking that ensued as a result. And as for Mr Hopper, yes he's a cartoon villain - that's pretty much what I paid my dollar for - he may not be an American Psycho, but he's got an eyepatch and that's good enough for me. Anyway, why are you looking at him when you've got Ms Tripplehorn on screen ?
All in all it's hardly a a work of high art, but if you're the type that thinks poor reviews are a plus point, then you'll buy it anyway - and you'll have a great couple of hours.
Anyway - what do I know - I loved the Postman too.
Ignore the tiresome little typewriter tappers.
They need to get over it.
