Just wait for the book...
So what you are saying is that, rather than presenting a well thought out story, you made up a very sketchy outline that could potentially lead to a story and, rather than flesh out minor details like the basics of the plot, you posted it as a great movie idea. Then, when someone asked what you had in mind for one of the central motivations of the entire movie concept, you face palmed because you felt that they were either missing the point or dumb. I get that you don't have a completed script, but shouldn't you have some reason why the bad guy is the bad guy?
Now I feel confident to say that, if you were making it, it would not make a good movie. I would hate to have the gripping climax when the hero confronts the villain and asks "Why do you want to take away this symbol of humanity's hope?" and the villain says "I don't know. I just figured I'd blow it up."
Secondly: You know there isn't the whole story
As to how you should know, you are making the move idea. You are giving people their motivation, so if you don't know why the villain is doing what he/she is doing, how do you expect people to understand what's going on?
They attacked the WTC because they wanted to make a statement about American greed and damage the economy, and the Pentagon for a similar statement about the American military.
Oh, and why the villain would want to destroy it? How do I know? Like 9th 11, why did they destroy WTC towers, when they could destroy the White House?
PsychDave, in movies everything isn't always the logic way, most important thing is that it makes me rich!
Interesting concept, kind of mixing Waterworld with Sum of all Fears. It could be good, but what motivation could the villain have to destroy it? Also, why would we live on the sea floor where people can't survive and there's no light for solar power or raising crops, rather than in floating cities? Just my two cents,but it is an interesting idea. Good luck.
GOD ****** YOU GUYS WONT STEAL THIS IDEA ** *********!
The global warming has caused the seas to rise and everyone are living in huge domes at the seafloor. Only the the peak of Mount Everest have been left over the sea. Now someone tries to blow it up. What will happen? Not in movie theatres by 5th of Smarch 2015!
