Robinson Crusoe flees Britain on a ship after killing his friend over the love of Mary. A fierce ocean storm wrecks his ship and leaves him stranded by himself on an uncharted island. Left to fend for himself, Crusoe seeks out a tentative survival on the island, until he meets Friday, a tribesman whom he saves from being sacrificed. Initially, Crusoe is thrilled to finally have a friend, but he has to defend himself against the tribe who uses the island to sacrifice tribesmen to their gods. Over time, their relationship changes from master-slave to a mutual respected friendship despite their difference in culture and religion.Written by
Pierce Brosnan was asked to stay on an extra few days past the original filming schedule. He was offered more money, but instead requested, and was given, a Porsche 911 Carrera. See more »
A "No Swimming" sign is clearly visible in the bottom left corner of the screen in the shot of the calm beach in the morning after the storm in which Crusoe and Friday lose their boat and livestock. The same shot shows several palm trees with the trunks painted white, an unnecessary and impossible feat for Crusoe and only done in modern times to keep ants out of the trees. 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.

My mother once told me that if I don't have something nice to say that I should stay quite. But this movie was so bad that I can't keep my silence. Those of you with great standards please forgive me for I have to say these bad thoughts...This film deserved a much better director and I can't tell you how disappointed I was by Pierce Brosnin. The script, cinematography, editing, acting, and directing failed to elecite any interest of staying awake. To all those who love a good adventure film...stay away. The money you would spend on this film's rental could feed a poor child somewhere in the world. I am really sorry, Mom.
