Trivia

The production employed several local Fiji islanders in the surrounding archipelago, including the neighboring Mana Island about a mile away. The locals were allowed to keep some of the supplies and tools as tokens of their help. See more »

Goofs

Chuck was lost in 1995, yet his Jeep Cherokee is clearly a 1999 model. The newly styled front end first appeared in 1997 models, and the wheels were first available in 1999. The dashboard and instrument cluster are from the newer model. The front blinkers on the 1995 Cherokee were attached to the headlights, not on the front fender. See more »

Applauding the guts
27 September 2001 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

From time to time a group of people with a lot of guts come forward and challenge something, that every average thinking producer would get nightmares to even think about making it.

Fear of failing must come to mind, if the setting says:

  • only one actor for 80 min (and one dead body)




  • 40 min of it basically limited to: "Hello,.. What's that?.. Albert


Miller,.. Over here,.."

  • no BGM




  • no adrenaline injections with savages, sharks, snakes


etc.

  • just plain "Life is hard enough as it is."




I loved it for:

  • the guts of making it




  • the heartbreaking and real-to-life love story




  • Tom Hanks' performance




  • his companion Wilson




great movie / must see
