Trivia

With Kelly having said that Chuck's island was 600 miles South of the Cook Islands, the location of the island is therefore around 1600 miles away from where most of the island scenes were filmed. See more »

Goofs

In the cave, Chuck has made an analemma, which is impossible without a precise watch, which is stated he didn't have. The analemma is a graph of the difference between solar time and civil time, in any case he only had access to a solar time reading. See more »

Outstanding
8 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

I think this is an excellent movie..I've noticed many felt it "too long, boring, etc..." which is to be expected in today's "gimme non-stop action; I haven't been doing anything for 5 minutes, I'm bored" mentality. This was a true man vs nature movie that really made me think about what I take for granted and I found myself wondering how I would react in such a situation. Would I talk to a volleyball? you betcha...anyone who has spent any significant time alone can relate. Bought the DVD and will watch it for years too come.
