Review by banion48 (posted on 4-Apr-2005)

In the future humans have finally caused enough damage that the polar ice caps have melted and flooded the Earth. The peaceful survivors live on floating cities and try to mete out a meager existence while the warmongering "Smokers" hoarde the last vestiges of industrial civilization and terrorize their fellows. Costner plays a lone Mariner who spurns both groups and chooses to live a life of solitude. When he does come in contact with humans, however, they discover he has mutated slightly to accomodate his new environment -- possessing gills and webbing between his digits. At first they revile him but in a Smoker raid he is inextricably drawn into their fate, forced to take a small, prophetic child and her caretaker along on his ship or risk letting the secret of "dry land" into Smoker hands.
