3.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic idea is (aprtially) wasted, so make a sequel!, 29 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Waterworld [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
This sci-fi movie is nothing less than brilliant..! That is, until the 'Hollywood safety belt' is strapped on (nice and tight) after circa 1 hour. The setting - the Earth after a massive 'Greenhouse effect' - really fascinates me (but where do cigarettes come from?)
Kevin Costner ... as the quiet, mutated mariner, and 9-year old Tina Majorino gives a notable convincing and mature performance as the bizarre orphan, Enola. The Deacon's (Dennis Hopper's) lines are both humourous and grotesque, but Jeanne Tripplehorn is completely misplaced, as is the ending...
As another reviewer stated, 'Waterworld' actually deserves a sequel, and if Costner doesn't like the idea, then let a French director handle the project, and let Jean Réno (in Luc Besson's 'Leon', 1994), act with Tina Majorino. When you've seen this movie, you'll agree that there is enough potential for a more dangerous sequel!
