Riverworld is a science fiction movie from 2003 that takes place on a mysterious planet where every human who has ever lived on Earth is resurrected. The movie is based on the novel with the same name written by Philip Jose Farmer. The movie stars Brad Johnson, Karen Holness, and Emily Lloyd. The opening of the movie sets the stage for the strange events that are to come. A man named Jeff Hale (Brad Johnson) is driving with his fiancée when they have a car accident. Jeff dies, but instead of finding himself in heaven or hell, he wakes up in a strange futuristic world where he finds himself surrounded by a diverse group of people. As he soon learns, everyone in this place has one thing in common: they have all died.

Jeff is the first person the audience is introduced to, and he soon meets other characters, including an American war correspondent and a 19th-century Englishwoman named Alice Liddell (Emily Lloyd) who was the inspiration behind the classic novel Alice in Wonderland.

The planet they are on is always bright, with no nighttime or stars. They are also on the banks of a river, which they quickly realize is infinite and has a mysterious force that can grant them anything they want, including food, shelter, and clothing.

As the characters begin to explore and try to make sense of their new surroundings, they start to unravel the mystery of the planet. They discover that the river is the source of all life on the planet, and the strange beings who control it are the ones who have resurrected them. But why were they resurrected, and what is the purpose of this strange world?

The group of characters soon find themselves on a quest to find out who the beings behind the river are, and what their ultimate goal is. Along the way, they face many obstacles, including pirates who rule the river, and strange creatures that inhabit the planet.

The movie is a blend of science fiction and adventure, and it also offers a great deal of character development. As the group of characters learns more about themselves and each other, they grow closer and form a family-like bond that keeps them going on their quest.

One of the main themes of the movie is death and what comes after it. The characters find themselves resurrected in a world they don't understand, and they have to confront what they left behind on Earth. Some of the characters find redemption, while others struggle with the choices and mistakes they made in life.

The acting is solid throughout the movie, with Brad Johnson giving a particularly strong performance as the main character. Emily Lloyd also shines as Alice, bringing a great deal of depth and complexity to the character.

The special effects are also impressive, particularly the scenes involving the river and the creatures that live on the planet. The movie has a beautiful and otherworldly feel to it, making it a visual treat for science-fiction fans.

Overall, Riverworld is an entertaining and thought-provoking movie that combines science fiction and adventure in a unique and compelling way. It offers a fascinating look at the afterlife and what it might look like if everyone who ever lived on Earth suddenly woke up on a strange planet. Fans of science fiction and adventure will enjoy this movie, as will those who enjoy a good character-driven story.
