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.
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

The child's name, Enola, is "alone" spelled backwards. See more »
After the Mariner throws Enola off the boat, Helen runs past him to jump off the boat and simultaneously the Mariner gets up from the place where he sat. Again you can see him standing (in the right corner) in the next two shots on Helen jumping from the boat and on Enola shouting for help. Then in the following shot the mariner is still sitting in his "chair" and holding his aching cheek. See more »
Well, I'll be damned. It's the gentleman guppy. You know, he's like a turd that won't flush.

This is an unpopular movie, and I don't see why it is so. Admittedly, it is unbelievable, but so are James Bond films. There was enough action in this one to keep thriller buffs going all the way through. Costner did a good job portraying a lonely vagabond in a crazy, violent world. Dennis Hopper, as usual, was an effective villain; he kept me laughing all the way with his insane antics, and his stupid henchmen. I have to wonder, however, if the full nude shot of the girl was really the actress I had been watching. With clothes on, she didn't look all that well endowed. Not a bad movie, really.
