The People's Review of Cast Away
Score = "100"
"Beautifully directed with the correct choice of choosing Tom Hanks
as the main character. This movie is very deep, not just those
what-you-see-is-what-you-get movies. Hence, it mentions a lot about if you
don't have a goal, how life could be miserable where death is the solution
to all problems. Chuck's(Tom Hank's) goal was to be able to see Helen Hunt
again, but other than that, was to live to see the last FedEx mail sent
back to the sender and that was how he could keep sane. Also, 'Cast Away'
is a movie where the director doesn't add fancies to it in order to 'hope'
to impress viewers, but rather keeps it natural and, in my opinion, that's
how movies should be. All in all, this movie is a 'must see.'"
Score = "40"
"The premise was good, the acting was phenomonal. the mike hanging
down from the top of the screen was just plain bad. in every scene that
involved dialect in-doors the microphones can be seen in the shot! it
really takes away from the experience. the ending drifts off leaving us
saying ""and then... ?"" all in all, i liked Cast
Away, but i can't help feeling it was rushed some how." "
Score = "60"
"Although Tom Hanks did a great job in this movie I did not like the
ending. You really got to know his chariter and cared about him. To end
the movie the way they did was cruel. It needed alittle more closure. Also
the editing was poorly done. In a could have been touching scene you see a
mic hanging on the top of the screne. In another scene youcan see the
whole boom. Nice job directors."
"Beautiful masterpiece of film making and poetic commentary on the
human condition in modern life. The symmetry of the film's composition
reminds one of the musical form of great compositions: crafted so well
that one hardly notices the craft. Symbolism permeates every aspect of
this gripping adventure story, so it can be experienced simply or
profoundly. The title is Cast Away -- two words, rather than the expected
one-word label for one who is marooned. Why? The film is about stripping
away the non-essential right down to the core of what life means. Like
many great, subtle works of art, this film yields to each viewer what that
viewer brings to the film. And adds richness to every viewer."
Score = "100"
"Tom Hanks is amazing, the idea is amazing, the direction is amazing.
See this movie!(It is amazing)"

"CASTAWAY WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY MOVIE. I WENT IN THINKING IT WOULD BE
A UNIQUE MOVIE EXPERIENCE. IT WAS THAT AND A WHOLE LOT MORE. TOM HANKS IN
HANDS DOWN HIS BEST WORK TO DATE, DID A WONDERFUL JOB OF USING HIS BODY
LANGUAGE AND EMOTIONS TO CARRY THE AUDIENCE THROUGH THE 45 OR SO MINUTES
OF NO DIALOUGE. THIS MOVIE NEVER GOT BORING. IT EVEN IN MY OPINION GOT
BETTER AND EVEN MORE TOUCHING AS THE FILM PROGRESSED, ALL THE WAY TO THE
END. HELEN HUNT SHINES IN WHAT I THINK IS HER BEST ROLE IN RECENT MEMORY.
THIS WAS DEFINATELY NOT YOUR SAME OLD BIG STUDIO PICTURE, WHICH IS NOT
NESSICARILY A BAD THING. HANKS AND ZEMECKIS REALLY OUT DID THEMSELVES THIS
TIME. FOR A WONDERFULLT TOUCHING MOVIE GOING EXPERIENCE GO SEE CASTAWAY.
YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!" "
