This is one of our favorite movies of all time. Far fetched but not completely unbelievable. The sail boat and its gadgets are awesome to watch. We usually do not watch movies more than once, but this one has made our list every few years.

Excellent acting, and believable storyline. Well worth a look if you're a fan of 'Mad Max'. The mutant bit also very believable...could happen. I definately recommend this movie.

Great movie really enjoyed it! Lots of action & kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. Can't uderstand why this movie wasn't a big hit.

Never quite understood why people didnt like this film. its great. I would describe it as Mad max 2 with water instead of desert. With a few major differences as well of course :) If you like post apocalyptic films, this is a good one.

I saw this years ago and enjoyed it just as much second time around. Kevin Costner - another great role for him.

Big budget and almost delivers too. A classic tale of good versus evil with two distinct communities surviving the thawing of the ice caps.
