Cast Away Reviews
But it could've been a better film, an examination of why we choose life (as opposed to life simply choosing us).
I had the feeling Zemeckis kept the core of the piece to himself. Still, it's watchable, if anticlimactic.
It amazes me that this was made in an era where people don't typically think about trying to make a movie like this, much less actually do it. For that I am both happily surprised, and relieved to see that there's still some balls and creativity present in the world of major studio filmmaking.
It does run kinda long, and could have been greatly tightened up in some places, but this is still a moving and engaging survival story that works best as an allegorical psychological yarn, and not something more concrete.
A little flawed, but good stuff nonetheless.
Its not an exciting , most dialog movie in the world but it stills manages to keep you interested and watch it till the end!!
Really one movie to watch!!
