"The most beautful gift in the world is, of course, the world itself". Mature and melancholy, Cast Away thoughtfully explores the "no man is an island" motif really well as to help Tom Hanks in his quest for survival, we join forces with Wilson the volleyball. Wilson should be in more movies, man. Another Robert Zemeckis classic.
Holy Product Placement. FedEx logo front and scentre at every opportunity, very VERY annoying. They even managed to squeeze Dr. Pepper in at the end. I kept expecting to see a banner on the desert island that said, "This production brought to you by FedEx."
Sad and difficult to watch, especially as it was compared to a situation I'm involved in. Good family movie. Cussed at the volleyball once and that's the only thing that against my mom's movie standards for little kiddos in the whole thing.
Captivating tale with an incredible performance by Tom Hanks. Many scenes require little to no dialogue to convey exactly what Hanks is feeling and thinking. The ending feels like a bit of a letdown, but it does at least make sense.
Story about a man stuck on a deserted island for many years. Zemeckis does an excellent job of showing what a person must do to survive, although I think most people would have likely been unable to start a fire and died. Me included. Still I like this move a lot. Tom Hanks is really good. One of my favorites.
