Storyline

In 2048, global warming caused the sea level to raise high above most cities. John Kubiak runs a salvage business with his adopted orphan sons, cocky Jack and erudite, cautious Thomas. Yet top priority, above profit, is a secret project for New Vatican cardinal Battaglia which even the boys only learn about when it kills John. It's retrieving the pharaonic scepter of Sobek, according to legend commanding the sea-level. The Kubiaks' ruthless rival in this relic hunt is against real estate super-tycoon Nicholas Filiminov, who also recruited Jack's ex, Giovanna Becker, by promising to finance her geological sea control research.

Global warming has melted the ice caps and the sea level has risen covering much of the earth with water, and it keeps rising.
3 August 2010 | by MACCAroxsoxOFFSee all my reviews

I thought it was an adequate movie. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. I had a good time watching and I think I would even watch it again. I love that it has to with global warming as I think everyone should be more aware of it. The sea level rising and land disappearing because of it are very real possibilities although how far into the future I do not know. I thought the actors were great also! It's worth a look. I always say don't listen to anyone else's opinion, even a professional critic. The Critics put down Wild Wild West and I had people who would not see it with me just because of that. I saw it anyway, and I loved it, it had it all. Action, comedy, creepy villains, crazy contraptions. Same goes with this movie, don't let someone else decide whether you see it. See it for yourself and make your own decision. :D

P.S. I can appreciate the bathtub analogy someone was giving up there tho. It's an interesting way to look at it, although it would have never crossed my mind to compare it like that.
