Trivia

Chuck Noland's name can be abbreviated as 'C. Noland' or "see no land" which is clearly fitting given the circumstances or plot of the movie. See more »

Goofs

When Chuck is boarding the airplane after kissing Kelly goodbye, the aircraft's tail fin has no engine mounted to it. This proves that the airplane used in this shot was not an MD-11, which was used as the model for the cockpit scenes later in the movie. MD11s have an engine mounted on the tail fin, three thrust levers between the pilots, and 6 digital cockpit screens. See more »

Chuck Noland: If I'm here New Year's Eve, then I'm here. If I'm not, I'm not.

Misunderstood
8 April 2002 | by (Minnesota, USA) – See all my reviews

I simply loved this film but was shocked by the bad reviews that people gave it. To this I say to them: You seriously misunderstood the meaning of it. Although I won't reveal any real details about the meaning because I think that you should try and understand it yourself. The movie was terrific and simply breathless the whole time. I felt awestruck about how the life of one man could be so changed after an experience that Hanks went through. I say that every element of the film was perfect. And for those of you who hate Wilson, you have to understand about how human he really was to Chuck. I was amazed on how well this movie was made and think that everybody should have an experience that should cause you to take stock of your life. I was so adamant to get this movie; I got it at 8:00 the day it was released. I give it an 8/10. Well done Robert
