TOP 500 REVIEWERon 26 September 2016
“We should never commit the sin of losing track of time!” implores Tom Hanks near the start of this classic movie. The contrast between his methodical business acumen and his Russian counterparts is made clear, even the Texas sunshine contrasts with Moscow snow.

And so it is when removed from the world of exact and exacting time to the timeless shores of a tiny island devoid of human contact. Fascinating to see that even after his prolonged stay, his escape depends on calculation. On time computed.

The crash scene is a stunning piece of cinema that I witnessed on ten foot projection screen: when he crawls towards the camera on the shore I still think he is going to speak to me! Elsewhere the high def. Blu ray of his self dentistry really does put you there. In a cave in pain. Coconuts dropping on different speakers.

I have watched it many times, sometimes I stop at the point he raises his hand. You’ll see if you have not already seen this movie. In my top thirteen. I never turn my back on time. Like me the title at the start is two words, one appears then the second just to underline what it means in the end.

If ever you needed proof positive that Tom Hanks is not just a nice guy and all round good egg - but a Grade-A actor into the bargain - then check out his astonishing performance in "Cast Away". Holding the vast majority of the movie on his own is no mean feat - and he pulls it off with utterly convincing aplomb…

But British fans of the film should however note that the 'US' 20th Century Fox BLU RAY is REGION A LOCKED - so it will not play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are)

Stick with the cheap and cheerful UK release - it's a looker on the format and a great journey film that will stay in your memory...

Will always be a classic in my book. I dont think its for everyone. But great story, great directing, and some really nice cinematography.
My advice to anyone who has never seen it. But is on the fence as to whether to. Give it a go. You may be suprised at how much you like it.
Its one of those odd films that you will get to a part where you think "okay getting boring. Gonna turn it off" And then it suddenly pulls you in again with a great scene

I haven’t seen this film on years and being able to watch the outstanding visuals through Blu-Ray was a real treat. Tom Hanks is excellent and the action is incredibly believable. Wilson The Basketball was robbed of the Oscar though!
