Goofs

Chuck plans for his launch by looking at where the Sun is shining on a rock in his cave. The spot of light makes a figure 8 as the year progresses. But the light spot would have to be marked at the same time each day, as it would also move across the rock throughout the day. It is unlikely that it just happened to be that time of day as he looked at his "calendar", and it is unlikely that he knew what time it was since his watch did not work. See more »

Quotes

Chuck Noland: Do, do you have to keep bringing that up, huh? Ok, so it was a good thing we did a test because it wasn't going to be just a quick snap. Would've broken my neck, or leg or my back. Would've bled to death on the beach, but it's in the past. It was what, a year ago? SO let's just forget it.

User Reviews

well-crafted and intriguing
14 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

From director Robert Zemeckis comes this powerful character study of a man and his quest for survival. Hanks is a time-obsessed postal worker on a routine cargo transport. His life is forever changed after the plane crashes and he finds himself stranded all alone on an uncharted island. We're drawn into his long, arduous journey as he struggles not only to keep his sanity, but to stay alive so he can make it back to the love of his life (Hunt). A fascinating, believable, and thought-provoking portrait of a man and his fight to live, with a remarkably ideal performance from Tom Hanks, and steady, effectively leisure direction that allows viewers to accompany this resilient survivor on his emotionally wrenching journey. A small idea expanded into a one of a kind movie. ***½
