In a future where the polar ice-caps have melted and Earth is almost entirely submerged, a mutated mariner fights starvation and outlaw "smokers," and reluctantly helps a woman and a young girl try to find dry land.
A drifter with no name finds a Jeep with the skeleton of a postman and a bag of mail and dons the postman's uniform and bag of mail as he begins a quest to inspire hope to the survivors living in the post apocalyptic America.
The polar ice caps have melted, and the earth is covered by water. The remaining people travel the seas, in search of survival. Several different societies exist. The Mariner falls from his customary and solitary existence into having to care for a woman and a young girl while being pursued by the evil forces of the Deacon. Written by

When the Mariner is in the cage and Old Gregor is asking him about dry land, Gregor shows him a slip of paper with the dry land markings on it. The paper goes back and forth between being torn and intact between shots. See more »

There are no opening credits except the title. See more »
it's a shame so many people spent their time running their mouths rather than watching the movie.
The story isn't new (what story is?) but its' well done, BIG color, BIG scenes,a touch of serious, a touch of humor, clear cut good guy, clear cut BAD guys with a few "grey guys" thrown in the middle.
Costner is always a variable. When the right script hits, no one is better, otherwise it's pretty much a monotone.
FORTUNATELY, this is the kind of script where the dead pan, monosyllabic Good Guy works just fine.
It's a shame the "experts" (i.e. the critics who create nothing) trashed this one. Even if it were the worst movie ever made, Costner would have been contributing more the "creative world" than ANY critic will in their entire lives. geoff beneze
