The day before production started on this film, 8 June 1994, Pierce Brosnan was being introduced to the press as the new James Bond at the Regent Hotel in London. He was already sporting his Robinson Crusoe beard. See more »
(at around 34 mins) The camera zooms out over the "uninhabited" island. Clearly visible are over a dozen modern beach-front houses in a row along two beach sections. See more »
I am a journalist Robert, I assure you. I have very little interest in your flights of fancy.
You Daniel Defoe are a writer. It's your destiny as such to bring this remarkable man's story, a story of intense struggle, extraordinary friendship, and undying love to the world.

I really don't understand people who always complain about "it's not accurate to book". If it would be 100% accurate to book it would SUCK big time. Somethings just don't work on movies that worked on the book and vice versa. For a good example, Lord of The Rings - Fellowship of the Ring, Bombadil wouldn't work on the movie at all.
As a TV movie, this is very well done, for example the storm and shipwreck scene felt great. And overall the scenery is great and all settings are made with care and look very real.
Actors do pretty good job, though maybe little overacting from time to time, but nothing to complain really. I liked Brosnan's Scottish accent it gave a spice to the character and made more real.
The movie is about love and friendship, and really worked on me. I highly recommend everyone who like about adventure movies.
