At the risk of repeating what others have already written, this movie is not the same “Robinson Crusoe” that Daniel Dafoe wrote. While some might question whether this matters, I think it is fair, at the very least, to complain that it falsely presents itself as being something it isn’t. I rented this movie to see an adaptation of Dafoe’s novel, which this isn’t. Lest I leave the impression that the film’s “artistic license” is my only complaint, though, I should mention that this isn’t a very good movie by any measure. I guess they tried to punch up the book by adding romance, conflict, and action scenes that could best be described as a curious mix of the A Team and MacGyver. Suffice to say, there are better ways for viewers to spend their time and money. 3 out of 10.
Deserted islands… they have “no swimming” signs, don’t ya know!
So. This is an adaptation of Daniel Defoe’s story. A rather loose adaptation, I must say. It has the basic plot, but veers a little off course throughout in order to make the movie more entertaining and give it a little action.
In itself, that’s not a bad thing. I think the spirit of the book was kept, if not the letter. But hey! It’s a reworking of a book written nearly three hundred years ago, so of course it’s going to be prone to modern storytelling techniques and manipulation.
It’s basically a TV movie but they managed, somehow, to rope Pierce Brosnan into this. Not a bad thing, since he lends some credibility to the character of Crusoe.
Since its been more than thirty years since I read the book, I won’t try and pick faults with the screenplay’s differences from the novel. Except just this one thing….
I don’t remember the book well, but I’m almost positive that, in the book, there isn’t a beach scene with white-painted palm trunks and a “NO Barbeques on the beach” sign. I blinked and had to rewind the DVR for that. But there it is. A shockingly badly chosen piece of stock footage with the aforementioned sign right in the foreground! Actually, it was too blurry to read anything other than the “NO” part. But it says “NO” something, that’s for sure! I’m wondering if a second watch through will reveal tire-tracks in the sand, or discarded drinks cans, etc! Whoever left that in needs to be sacked. C’mon! Just cut that bit out. It only lasts a second or two! But its glaringly obvious. Talk about ruining immersion! Awful editing aside, Crusoe is not a bad film. It tries to send a message of tolerance and understanding, of friendship and love. For the most part, that succeeds fairly well but it is a trifle overdone. Crusoe’s (Brosnan’s) narration is sometimes needless but not distracting and the movie is fairly good entertainment if there’s nothing better to watch.
SUMMARY: Fairly decent TV movie. One hideous editing screw-up. Not too long. Worth watching if you have a couple of hours to kill.
