I saw this movie in the cinema and I was pleasantly surprised. I expected a depressing Robinson Crusoe tale and instead, I got a most inspiring story. I had to have it on DVD. Though I must say, after reading the book, the movie feels... dumbed down, overly simplified. The book is so much better and smarter. Still, even the movie is a rare pleasure. I admired Mark's endless optimism and resourcefulness. That was a thing to behold. His "never give up" attitude was truly inspiring!

It wasn't as boring as the second movie but not nearly as good or as smart as the first one. It seemed rather convoluted to me while actually nothing really much happened. It felt like a bunch of tiny stories smooshed together to make one big film. Also, I'm not a big fan of characters reminiscing about how old and uncool they've become. Oh well. But no wonder they didn't make more of these films. Even now it felt like they were still milking the first one.
