5.0 out of 5 stars It really isn't that bad... July 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
After reading all the negative reviews for this movie, I was hesitant to see it. But, I really enjoyed it. It's funny, and sad. I highly reccomend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bandwagoned By Many, Seen By Few July 10 2004
Format:DVD
OK, let me start off by saying this movie wasn't what the critics made it out to be. The movie was actually good. Although Madonna's acting, as usual, left something to be desired, you can't help but think to yourself, she played the part off though . . . .and that's exactly what she did.
Firstly, I'd like to say that the script killed the movie. It wasn't a bad movie, it was just a horrible script. I cringed to so many parts of the film because I thought to myself, "I know Madonna knows this isn't going anywhere." That's why some complained, because the fact that it took so long to get into the movie, because honestly, the movie took off when Madonna and Adrianno were stranded, and the climax was the very unexpected ending. (I haven't seen the first, so it was unexpected to me.)
Madonna's nonchalance acting wasn't very believeable and at times, it was quite cheesy, but this was probably her best acting preformance after Evita ofcourse. The movie was saved by the acting of Adrianno, and the chemistry that him and Madonna shared. It was good to see a movie that stepped out of the love story clich'e a little bit.
The music in the movie was thoughtful and very good to listen too, especially the song that is playing while Madonna and Adrianno are sitting down with eachother to an orange sunset. My favorite song , well instrumental, has to be the instrumental that is played on several parts of the movie, and for the ending credits. (the instrumental I'm speaking of is titiled "Partied" on the soundtrack) The music montages that guy came up with were also funny, and that preformance by Madonna to a classic by Della Reese was also great.

i don't think this movie is as awful as everyone says.i think it's
mildly amusing.bu ti don't think it's very interesting,and it is
slow.ti don't think the acting is the problem.i think it's the script.i
think it's a movie with an identity crises.i'm just not sure what kind
of movie it wants to be.i don't think the dialogue is very good
either.having said that,i will say i think the acting is not that
great.it's average at best.no one really seemed interested to be
there.but they don't really have a lot to work with.Madonna is in this
movie and i don't think her acting is any better or worse than anyone
else in the movie.for me,Swept away rates a 2/5

When my wife brought this movie home, I looked at the DVD and thought: Wait a minute...oh no, this is that Madonna film that got panned left and right...what did you do? But it was a rainy Friday night (movie night), and nothing else was on, so I went into this with the lowest of expectations.
I am certainly not a big Madonna fan. While I admire how she's been able to reinvent herself musically, her acting ability leaves something to be desired. Her acting in this movie was not good...not good at all. But that aside, I felt the supporting cast was excellent, especially Adriano Giannini. Next to him, Madonna looked like an awkward first year high school drama student. Had someone else played the role of Madonna's spoiled rich girl, say Annette Bening or Debra Winger, the movie would have probably done much better. Madonna's lack of screen credibility doomed this one right out of the gate. Granted, Madonna's getting up there in age, but I was struck by how old and gristly she looked...even with makeup.
The cinematography was actually really good. Shots of the beach, panoramic shots of the ocean, the flora and fauna, all were visually pleasing. I'd probably watch the DVD again for that alone.
Would I run out and buy it? No. Would I rent it? Yes. Only if there was nothing else to choose from. On an "A" to "F" grading scale, it's a solid "C-".

4.0 out of 5 stars A Curio Movie. May 21 2004
Format:DVD
A Rich, Spoiled Woman (Madonna) and a handsome Italina Fisherman (Adriano Gianini) find themselves stranded on a Medterrarean Island Paradise. It`s a island, where things of power and class are meaningless. At first, they truly deeply hate eachother until there`s differences come to a stop. They are suddenly attracted to eachother.
Directed by Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels-Snatch) made a watchable, sometimes funny romantic film that is Interesting to look at. Alex Barber`s Cinematography is the Highlight of the Movie. The film has some good moments but moments of mean-spirited, some viewers will be turned off. This is a Remake of the 1974 film, directed by Lina Mertmuller. Giannini`s father:Giancarlo was in the Original Film. DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer and an terrific Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD has 16 Deleted Scenes with/without Commentary, theatrical trailers but the DVD Best Feature is the Jokey 20-Minute Featurette of Swept Away is the most entertaining, Even Funnier than the Movie! This film isn`t as bad, you might think. True, it was a Box Office Flop, the film might receive a Cult Status. The film is a Curio at Best. Grade:B+.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could barely make it though the movie
I waited until the movie came out on TV and I was glad. I saw it on HBO and it took will-power not to change the channel. Nothing else was on anyway. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Madonna and Guy
4 Stars do to Guy's directing, not Madonna's acting. As much as I love Madonna, she seems a bit stiff in this movie. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good remake
This movie surprised me in several ways. One, it was an excellent performance by Maddona. Two, it was less violent than the original (which was too chauvinistic and brutal). Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Swept Away (2002)
This one wasn't all that great. I would have given it four stars, but the ending persuaded me to give it only three. I wouldn't say that I dislike it. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Madonna's performance unjustly criticized
I guess it would be all too easy to take the critic's word for it, and believe Swept Away is a complete disaster - ruined by Madonna's "wooden" performance. Read more
