(out of 5)

Not nearly as bad as its reputation would have you think, this film was the most expensive film ever made at its time (budgeted roughly at $170 million).  plays a slightly mutated drifter in a Mad Max Meets The Flintstones futuristic world that is completely sunk in water. He and many others are looking for a mythical Dryland, but only a secret tattoo on a mysterious little girl () holds clues as to where it might be.  It is far from the disaster that was reported upon its disastrous opening, but it is boring at times and ‘s villain makes him more appropriate for a Metallica concert than an action movie; it’s just one of the mismatched elements of a film that is never quite sure of itself.
