    I think one of the big problems with this movie is simply that it tried to explain everything. It would’ve been far more effective if we were never told why the planet was covered with water, and simply gave us lots of visual hints and clues so the audience could come up with their own explanations. It seems far more interesting and mysterious if we came up with our own reasons as to why such a strange event would occur.

    I haven’t seen this movie in many years but I remember liking it despite the hatred it seemed to incite in so many critics. I’m just not sure I want to revisit it to find out if I would still enjoy it. I have this odd feeling that I wouldn’t!

    I think there was some good reason for the dislike, and if Costner hadn’t acted like such a gigantic ass during production it may have saved it a little, but his arrogance came threw in his performance and that was just a shame.

    Like I said, not bad, in small doses.

    Been a while, but I shall see it again.

    I seem to remember walking out fo the theater in total and complete indifference, but being that the major hype was that this was the most expensive movie ever made, I saw my indifference as a really horribly negative thing.
