Fresh: If the story seems a little waterlogged, it's still big, loud, and fun to watch.

Fresh: In the tradition of the old Westerns and Mel Gibson's Road Warrior flicks, this film provides good escapist fun.

A truly terrible movie, but it's a train wreck that's at least half way fun to watch. Maybe it's because I had nothing to expect when I saw it, but this is so nutty and a staple of terrible 90s sci-fi. I will say that Dennis Hopper as the villainous leader of the Smokers was really awesome, he's really the shining moment of the movie. Kevin Costner was just way over his head when it came to directing and acting, I think he buckled under pressure.

Ideal for Children and makes a big change from CGI cartoons which dominate and are in demand. But Kevin Costner (lead) is good and so is Chaim Girafi (girl) but I didnt quite enjoy Jeanne Tripplehorn. The movie is full of Hollywood stunts and is a very well told story with a clear begining, middle and end. Plus its not out dated for a film made nearly 15 years ago.
