Robinson Crusoe
2001
After killing a man in a duel over a woman, Robinson Crusoe is forced to flee his homeland on a trade ship and ends up marooned on an uncharted island after the vessel gets wrecked in a violent storm.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

This is a somewhat beefed-up, dumbed-down version of the classic novel, grafting a love story and different ending onto the tale, and focusing primarily on Crusoe's friendship with Friday (albeit in a PC way by having Crusoe come around to Friday's way of life instead of the opposite). It's an odd set of choices, but they work well enough to make a solid adventure movie. Pierce Brosnan's on-again, off-again Scottish accent sounds weird, but otherwise he's always watchable. It's too bad that William Tataku (Friday) never made another movie; he's pretty good in this.
