Nice to watch

This version is a good watch and a freshened version of the Robinson Crusoe franchise.

It shows how a lonely man can survive on tropical island.

Beautiful shooting shows the great colors of the scenery of the island they were on.

I originally only caught the first few minutes of this movie and enjoyed it and later found it on again and watched it to it's finish.

Takes a few surprising turns that I have not seen in other versions.

I felt from the start of this movie was very real of what was happening in the slave trade and Crusoe mentions this to his first captured slave.

Enjoyable to watch, I recommend this for those 12 years old and above.

What you see is what you get

"Crusoe" is a movie adaption of the classic Robinson Crusoe story. It focuses around Crusoe, who becomes a victim of shipwrecking and has to build a life for himself on an isolated island until he meets a stranger and has to bond again.

Unfortunately it's been a while since I read the actual nocel so it's hard to tell but it felt like producers used a bit of their artistical freedom there. In general though this is still the classical story. It does nothing wrong, the acting is decent and I like that it shifts a bit of focus on the hierarchy between Crusoe and Friday. I have to confess though, that it didn't really catch me, possibly because it focused more on telling the story than on a portrayal of emotions and inner conflicts that it could have been, too.

All in all this is a pretty classic approach towards the novel. Nothing wrong, solid work but I'm unsure if it would have been really necessary.

Aidan Quinn Great actor

This almost wordless version, is my favorite, it captures the lonely feeling of being lost on a beautiful Island. A man lost to the world with no one to help him, finds he needs companionship. The actors did a great job expressing the parts. I feel the writer's human approach to expressing the conflict between the white and the black man shows for all to see that we are, all, in the human race and need to learn to overcome our superior selfishness whether white or black. These 2 men become friends even to learning from each other and they both show they are indeed able to share there lives with respect for each other. They learn to trust each other and to protect each other. The haunting theme music so sets off this story. It sets the stage with the emotion, giving the viewer a real feel for the truths in this wonderful story.
