I watch a movie for enjoyment not to tear it down. Therefore I like Waterworld as Hokey as it was it was entertaining. An action film without major machinme guns is nice. Yes I liked Waterworld and all the actors involved

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

The New York Times
It lacks the coherent fantasy of truly enveloping science fiction, preferring to concentrate on flashy, isolated stunts that say more about expense than expertise. [28 July 1995] Full Review
James Berardinelli
The script doesn't do a great job with either the spiritual or the physical trek, but the spectacular action sequences occur with enough regularity that strong writing isn't necessary to keep Waterworld afloat. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Though Waterworld has some haunting underwater visual moments, the film's impact is weakened by flat dialogue, an overemphasis on jokeyness and a plot that, despite all those screenwriters, does not satisfactorily hold together at any number of points. Full Review
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
Nowhere near the Hollywood disaster that was foretold, Waterworld is a near-model summer fantasy: two hours and 21 minutes of loud, expansive fun. Full Review
