* SocialDarwinist: Most of people in the movie are this but the Mariner is the prime example, he definitely(at least at first) believes in survival of the fittest and has no concern for anyone.

Set InAWorld [[AfterTheEnd where the polar ice-caps have melted]] (due to a havoc caused by a geomagnetic reversal) the world is covered by water. What's left of humanity is surviving on ramshackle crafts tied together to make Atolls (villages). The Mariner (Costner) enters one of these Atolls to trade, but is discovered to be a mutant and sentenced to death. A gang of raiders known as ''Smokers'', led by Deacon (Creator/DennisHopper), attacks the Atoll. A woman named Helen (Jeanne Tripplehorn) and her adopted daughter Enola (Tina Majorino) bribe the Mariner to take them to the mythical Dry Land, which no one has ever seen. Conveniently, Enola's back has been tattooed with a map indicating the way to Dry Land (allegedly). However, with The Smokers hot on their tail, their journey encounters more than a few bumps along the way. And the Mariner is not your traditional plucky hero. He's just looking out for himself.

The film was a notorious TroubledProduction that caused the film's $100 million budget to balloon at $175 million, making it the most expensive film ever made until ''[[Film/Titanic1997 Titanic]]'' two years later.

* AdaptationDistillation: Not for the movie itself, but the Universal Studios show based on it is actually quite good and has been going on for seventeen years.

* NoPlaceForMeThere: The Mariner brought Helen, Enola, and their friends to the much sought-after Dryland. However, he decided that it wasn't a suitable place for him to settle down, and left for the sea - It was hinted that his gills mutation was why he prefers the sea environment.
