The real Cast Away ! Don't listen to those giving it a one *. Try to watch this movie on a big screen TV in a dark room with a decent sound system. I guarantee you will be lost for 2 hours. Visuals are just stunning! You won't see visuals like this in your typical run of the mill Hollywood flick. And don't worry about the plot, its complexity , or lack thereof..you will be totally immersed in this movie. There are critics who think there have to be twists and turns in the plot, propane tanks exploding, cars jumping off bridges, and other things to make a movie watchable. Pay no attention to them. Just go and watch, you won't be disappointed.Possibly one of the most overrated movies ever! I have seen many bad movies but this one has to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Imagine the following scenario: a woman gets abducted by a complete stranger and taken to a deserted island. Her deeply disturbed and unstable kidnapper is madly in love with her and is willing to do anything to keep her imprisoned on this island. At first, she is trying to escape from him but since he is the only one who can actually operate a boat she soon realizes that this is futile.One day after an altercation she stabs him and he eventually dies from this wound due to a great loss of blood. Paradoxically, she then gradually falls in love with this maniac who mistreated her both physically and mentally. Note that this takes place after he dies!
This preposterous and completely bizarre story made me sick. How can anyone fall in love with a lunatic whose idea of love is so disturbed? It is beyond my comprehension. I was looking for a solid thriller but it turned out to be nothing but rubbish. I am so angry with myself for selecting such a lousy movie. It is pointless, unintelligent and excruciatingly boring. I am going back to the videostore for a refund. You should get paid to see this movie. It is a complete waiste of time!OH MY LORD DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME BAD BAD BAD movie. I watched it to the end thinking...OK...it must get better...it must...but it doesn't. This nutty woman goes off with some dude in a bar. He kidnaps her and takes her to a remote island...slaps her around...she knifes him to protect herself (which causes his later death). THEN as she takes care of him affections grow (even tho he slapped her around and kidnapped her..PLEASE!) and when he croaks she falls in love WITH HIS CORPSE! That's RIGHT...his CORPSE! She props him up to have a TEA AND CHAT!!! WHAT THE HELL?? Then she keeps him in the FREEZER so she can CONTINUE THEIR RELATIONSHIP in BIZARRO dream sequences!!! When the true owner of the island shows up she tries to shoot him in order to keep her CORPSE LOVE NEST secure. Well, she misses and later MARRIES THE GUY and dances at their wedding with the corpse in a dream-like sequence. What a PIECE OF TRASH!!! My advice...turn down the sound and just watch the New Zealand scenery. Just make sure to ignore the corpse which starts looking pretty tatty despite the tea parties.
