Waterworld

Given the post I wrote for my profesional blog – about artic ice melt – I thought it would be appropriate to watch again Waterworld.

In this movie, the poles have melted and Earth has signficantly warmed up, leaving the few remnants humans fighting over food, energy and so on.

Besides the background, what it is to be kept from this film ?

The story is simple – albeit completely manichean – the characters interesting, the actors are doing their jobs… A decent film, but not much more.

Worth watching or rewatching in light of the current warming trend.Which leads me to a question :  Is Waterworld showing how our decendants will be in a few hundred years if we don’t do anything about climate change ?
