Editorial Reviews

In this passionate modern day retelling of the classic tale, Emma (Indiana Evans) and Dean (Brenton Thwaites) are on two opposing sides in their high school world. But when they're caught in a storm at sea during a Caribbean field trip and stranded on a deserted island, these two teenagers will have to come together in ways they never imagined. Without parents, without cell phones and without help, they'll learn how to survive on their own or face the ultimate consequences. Denise Richards and Christopher Atkins also star in this romantic story of resilience, strength and the courage that lives within us all.

Admit it, you were clamoring for a new interpretation of "The Blue Lagoon!" The 1980 original with Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins is probably more notorious than it is actually good, but that's okay. It tapped into a primal innocence and a fascination with sexual awakening that seems to have connected with viewers over time. In many ways, I think that revisiting this topic might be a good idea. A modern telling might bring a bit more frankness to the table. If, however, you are going to modernize a tale this reliant on sexual themes--the Lifetime network probably isn't the best bet to make the subject compelling or believable. "Blue Lagoon: The Awakening," thus, plays more like a chaste opposites-attract teen picture with a dash of Swiss Family Robinson style survival thrown in. Nothing of consequence is really at stake and the conclusion is never in doubt.

Indiana Evans plays a privileged teen beauty queen who happens to just fall off a boat. We won't discuss the specifics, you've simply got to see it to believe it! Luckily, high school slacker Brenton Thwaites is on hand to keep her company. Fortuitously, he is equipped with a surprising number of survival skills so that the two of them can make the best of a bad situation. Stranded for two months, the pair who have little in common start to grow closer. Will they find true love? Can they survive a wild animal attack? Will Thwaites ever show signs of facial hair? Everything is so by the numbers, I guess you will already know the answers to these questions. The kids are likable enough, the screenplay just doesn't give them much to do other than to act rather silly. When the climatic scene arrives, it lacks any impact. It's like the movie just ran out of time, so they slapped a conclusion on.

In the third outing in the Blue Lagoon film series, the producers have given this fresh eyes and written a romantic film that's neither dumb nor a titillating romp but quite satisfying as a teen love story.

Aussie actor Brenton Thwaites is Dean the school's bad boy while Indiana Evans is good girl Emma. While on a school trip to Trinidad to build housing they join the other students on a carnival boat party - she falls overboard, he follows and they get stuck in a dinghy before floating to an uninhabited island where they remained marooned. The two opposites (she's straightlaced and organised, while he's impetuous and wilder) have to survive and learn to support each other. Naturally romance follows!

As said, there's plenty to enjoy here. Thwaites is a total natural - he has terrific energy onscreen and looks downright handsome. Evans is a stunning beauty and plays up Emma's cautiousness well. The scenery is truly beautiful and there's plenty of light and shade as we watch them gather food, build a shelter and enjoy themselves. I liked the fact that there's no nudity (obvious as it's made for American TV) and it doesn't exploit the young characters. The sex scenes are suitably romantic but it's not all about the love story here - Dean's carrying some serious baggage from his mother's death and Emma learns to step out on her own and embrace life.

It falls over a bit with the one-note supporting characters. Denise Richards and Patrick St Esprit are the parents gravely searching the Carribbean for their kids and fearing the worst.

I thought the actors did a pretty decent job when you compare them to the other versions. I know you had to suspend belief for much of what happened on the island but I was OK with that. It is a tv movie after all. I liked how they showed the differences in Emma and Dean's personalities. She is more practical, goal oriented, have a plan, organized, worrier, social butterfly. He is more carefree (with those he cares about), aloof with others, naturally positive thinker. He reminds me of my cocker spaniel. That dog loves me and my other dog Juli. He tolerates other dogs but isn't really interested in playing with them at the dog park or day care. He pretty much ignores them because he only wants to be with Juli. To me, Dean was like that. I think he enjoyed being on that island with Emma, just living free. He was interested in her before and on the island he had her all to himself. I think after they returned to the world, he just wanted to be with her- no welcome back parties, no prom. She played the waffling teen girl role well. She got back to her life and tried to recapture what she had before, without him. I could see a teenage girl being like that (Oh, he's not so popular, we never hung out before we were on the island, he's kind of an outsider, and we're not on the island anymore, and I'm kind of liking being the popular center of attention right now, but I care about him, but what would everyone else say, he's cute and we did stuff on the island and now I'm confused). I liked this tv movie.

Where is the Blu-Ray release? Not even for pre-order yet?
Yeah, I do believe my statement. Companies don't want to get stuck with the cost of pressing a warehouse full of discs that don't sell. That's why they may start a series of movies or TV shows, but then they don't sell so the sequels and larger seasons are never released.
