A man is marooned on an island after his plane crashes into the ocean. Far away from home, his girlfriend, and any human contact, he engages in a battle of wits with himself as he is tested mentally, physically, and emotionally in order to survive.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.
