Pierce Brosnan stars in a new movie version of the classic adventure tale Robinson Crusoe. After killing a friend in a duel, Crusoe flees his native Scotland and takes to the high seas. A storm casts him ashore on an island in the Indian Ocean, where he builds himself a home out of bamboo and goes a little crazy from solitude--until he finds a footprint in the sand that isn't his. The relationship between Crusoe and Friday, a native from a neighboring island, gets a more contemporary (less colonial) interpretation than in the original story; the result is quite enjoyable. Brosnan is particularly good at depicting Crusoe's borderline madness from isolation, and William Takaku gives Friday both dignity and intelligence. The cinematography of the island is gorgeous. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Don't waste your time or money on this one. They took a great story and ruined it with political correctness.Published on April 30 2003
The movie, "Robinson Crusoe" seems to be centered wholly on the notion that human race is not fit to be alive at all. It throws prejudices in ones face, without dealing with them. Read morePublished on Oct. 23 2002
An overall poor performance that is easily outshadowed by Aidan Quinn's performance in the same role of the same title which was released in 1988. Read morePublished on June 9 2002 by Travis J. Mack
