In a perhaps not too distant future, the Polar Ice caps have melted and the world is flooded, now dry land is more valuable
then gold and there is a legend of an island somewhere on Earth. A girl has a map tattooed on her back which will lead to
that dry land and a pirate will do anything to have that map.
Now this movie had major problems from the get go, I mean whose idea was it to build that floating city in full scale when
a model would have worked just as well and in the real ocean to boot. Now don't get me wrong, it's a good story, not entirely
realistic but a good story but I think they spent way too much for it. There's realism and there's insanity and I think we
crossed that line in this one. 6 STARS.
This was just a blockbuster bomb, it was a nuclear blockbuster bomb. I agree with Zedd about they spent way too much money
for what the movie was worth. I mean the echo message was there where they spent twenty million or a hundred and twenty million.
They could have spent that money on echo charities it would have been better invested then this. 6 STARS as well.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ STORY (The story works.)
+ ECHO MESSAGE (The echo message is there with pounding our head over it.)
+ EXCITING (Never dull.)
+ ACTING (The acting was good.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- REALISTIC (I never heard any scientist say if the Polar Ice caps melt there'd more no land left at all, just the coastal
- WAY TOO MUCH MONEY (It cost way too much money when a smaller budget and models would have done just as well.)
