One of the biggest flops of all time and the end of Kevin Costner’s career as a bankable lead. Only one of those statements is true. While Costner never hit Robin Hood heights again, Waterworld is more than $100m (about £63.4m) in profit. It’s difficult to see a reason for the critical ire other than it was Costner’s turn for a backlash. There was ammunition — the film’s spiralling budget and a falling out with director Kevin Reynolds. Far superior to most of today’s blockbusters, the 1995 film is packed with show-stopping action and Costner’s Mariner is a compelling antihero — Han Solo with more menace and the cockiness dialled right back.
