The best water movies are films that involve water as a major thematic element. Typically set on a major body of water, such as an ocean, river, lake, pond or creek, these compelling and entertaining stories that just happen to take place or involve water.
Water Stunts are probably one of the most difficult to coordinate and control. To the average viewer, they have no idea of the highest concept of complexity involved in stunts requiring any aquatic motorized vehicle. First and most important, there are NO brakes. So the individual that is piloting the vessel must understand completely the speed, angle, and ability of the craft.
Movies such as Face-Off, Speed 2, and Miami Vice all used very talented stunt professionals to captain all the watercraft needed to give the excitement needed in each scene. Water World used an enormous variety of vessels and had a very successful safety record during the entire filming. It requires a very talented Stunt Coordinator and team to achieve the high quality action and precision desired by directors and producers.
