The film’s official synopsis reads, “After the melting of the polar ice caps, most of the globe is underwater. Some humans have survived, and even fewer still, notably the Mariner, have adapted to the ocean by developing gills. A loner by nature, the Mariner reluctantly befriends Helen and her young companion, Enola, as they escape from a hostile artificial island. Soon the sinister Smokers are pursuing them in the belief that Enola holds the key to finding the mythical Dryland.”
Unfortunately, the film didn’t receive the best reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Not only did it get a critics score of 46 percent but it received a 43 percent audience score as well.
In addition to Costner, the film also stars Dennis Hopper (Easy Rider), Jeanne Tripplehorn (Basic Instinct), Tina Majorino (Veronica Mars), Rick Aviles (The Cannonball Run), Chaim Jeraffi (Just Like Heaven) and Leonardo Cimino (Dune).
