Review this title!

An average action flick with a unique premise

Waterworld isn't too bad, but it isn't anything spectacular either. They spent an awful lot of money on a film that just didn't get where it was trying to go.

Where'd they get all the resources or the technology? (or fuel) This will make your kid dumb. Very, VERY DUMB.

Really take time to think about all the scientific errors this film is loaded with.

Not that amazing but not terrible

If I was to rate this movie it would be: PG-13 Some sequences of violence, brief rear nudity and sensuality, some strong language

Skip.

My rating: PG-13 for intense violence and an image of partial nudity. Violence: 3.5/5 - Pirate-type, intense. Sex: 2.5/5 - A woman strips in front of a man. We see little.

What does this remind me of? Seaworld!

First, why can't the little girl swim in a world of water? There is how much logic is in this film. I really cannot make a full review on this. It was that terrible. Thanks for reading!
