'Waterworld' (1995) starring Kevin Costner
Crisis condition: The polar ice caps have melted, flooding Earth and submerging the continents forcing everybody to live on man-made atolls of rusting junk.
The hero's journey: The Mariner, who possesses webbed hands and feet and can breath underwater, must battle bloodthirsty pirates ( Dennis Hopper chief among them) to save a little girl who may have the map to the world's only remaining dry land.
The look: Patchwork leather sleeveless vest, tight grey trousers, fingerless gloves, well-chewed cigar stump, inexplicable Michael Bolton hair
Weapon(s) of choice: Hand-held harpoon gun, jet ski
