Movie Info

Pierce Brosnan, best known for his suave and sophisticated roles, takes on a new screen personality in this adaptation of Daniel Defoe's classic novel. Robinson Crusoe (Brosnan) is an adventurer who hopes to find fame and fortune on the high seas, but a fierce ocean storm wrecks his ship and leaves him stranded by himself on an uncharted island. Left to fend for himself, Crusoe seeks out a tentative survival on the island, until he meets Friday (Wiliam Takaku), a tribesman living on the island. Initially, Crusoe is thrilled to finally have a friend, but when he discovers another tribe is also living on the island, he comes mad with power and insists that he be the sole ruler of all he surveys. Robinson Crusoe also stars Ian Hart, Lysette Anthony, and James Frain.more

Audience Reviews for Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe

There has been many Remakes of Robinson Crusoe. I rather stuck on the old one of 80`s

Did they even read the book?!? I'm guessing that they didn't even read the Cliff Notes from the book. Some of the themes in this movie were completely opposed to the original themes in the book. Beyond that, the movie was mildly entertaining. There was an aerial scene of the island where one could see roads and buildings, even though it was supposed to be uninhabited.
