Beyond the horizon lies the secret to a new beginning.
In a futuristic world where the polar ice caps have melted and made Earth a liquid planet, a beautiful barmaid rescues a mutant seafarer from a floating island prison. They escape, along with her young charge, Enola, and sail off aboard his ship. But the trio soon becomes the target of a menacing pirate who covets the map to "Dryland" -- which is tattooed on Enola's back.

eh. This movie could have been so magical, but the creators have sucked all heart and soul out of it.

Finally getting around to seeing this after all these years. I caught it tonight on Showtime Beyond about 30 minutes in, and getting the gist of what the film is about. Its got a pretty cool concept, and just as I thought it'd be, it's pretty much a MAD MAX set at the open waters/the oceans. I recognized some of the faces; Dennis Hopper always makes for a humorous villain. The action sequence towards the end definitely has that typical Universal Pictures directing style to it. I miss original action movies like this that uses practical effects and hand-built sets. I don't know why it's got so much flack back then or even to this day. But I personally enjoyed it for what it is. There was even an NES game based on Waterworld, and was just as "bad" as the film. The soundtrack sounds great too in this. The end scene reminded me of the end scene in Vampire Hunter D (1985); just the way it was shot is just so similar to each other - coincidence maybe. Too bad there was never a sequel, or at least not one I'm aware of.
