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.
Kevin Costner and Gene Hackman were, prior to co-starring in this film, starring in films directed by Clint Eastwood, he also co-starred in Unforgiven (1992) with Hackman and in A Perfect World (1993) with Costner. Incidentally Hackman and Costner played bad guys in these films. See more »
A sign on the side of a building advertised Clabber Girl Baking Powder. Although Clabber Baking Powder was a brand started in the mid-1800's in Terre Haute, Indiana, the brand wasn't named Clabber Girl until 1923. See more »
Both of these movies are about the same time, came out the same time, are about the same guys. And I enjoyed both of them. But Wyatt Erp can be tough to sit through. It's an Epic length film and it's paced that way. Both Costner and Russell play Wyatt as the Pistol Whippin' Sonovabitch that he was. But it's hard to accept Kurt mustache even though its real. And as good as Quade's Doc is Kilmer's is that much better. So it kind of balances out. So if you need epic length, my advice it take the beginning of Wyatt Earp, up until they head out West, and tack it on the front of Tombstone. Best of both worlds! It may be tough to see Costner turn into Russell, but you can put Earp's getting shorter and meaner down to getting older. And you'll get to see Quade turn into Kilmer! You can just put his getting skinnier and crazier down to the booze and the tuberculosis.
