4.0 out of 5 stars How Refreshing to See A Film Like This... January 29, 2007
I was drawn in to this movie expecting to see the standard "lost at sea" type of story and was pleasantly surprised as the plot unfolded. This family made the best of an awful situation, looked out for one another, and always relied upon their faith in God to get them through. They really "bloomed" where they were "planted". This production was so much more realistic than others and I could actually visualize myself in their situation--I was on the edge of my seat a number of times. This was very well done and such a refreshing change from the standard fare of violence, sex, and other depravity we are bombarded with on a daily basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! August 16, 2005
By K.
I never was into 'family' movies, but now with kids, I'm starting to check them out already on my own, as my kids are still too young yet. I saw this in the family section of a rental store and just finished watching. I was skeptical at first, wondering if I'd like it. But then before I knew it, I was completely drawn into the film and didn't want to stop to watch the second half tomorrow as I planned-- I had to see what came next. This was an interesting take on a great story, the acting was great, and the plot kept on moving. This was no goofy family film, but not some violent movie by any means. I'd think this would be a PG movie had it been rated, but maybe 9+ would start enjoying it more... but I always recommend pre-viewing a movie first before showing the children because a parent is the best judge for his/her child.

Right now I am glad I decided to check out family films for down the road, because it's introducing me to films like this that I would have loved to see even if I had no kids!

And... so many people in this film were gorgous yet had interesting looks. The three sons, very very hot. The mother was breathtaking, and the young blond girls were stunning. I couldn't help but mention that!

After seeing this movie on VHS from the rental store, I'm posting my order now from Amazon for the DVD. I don't care if there are no extras (which I hardly utilize anyway)-- the movie is worth the price.

UPDATE: I wanted to add that I have now viewed this on my new DVD, and the film is breathtaking. Crisp and clear, this makes me never want to see a VHS tape again after seeing the difference. Before it was the story and acting that drew me in, but now the scenery adds so much in this clearer view on the DVD. I just want to repeat, this is no cheesy family film-- buy it for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars OH DEAR - I MUST HAVE SEEN A BETTER MOVIE THAN MOST March 6, 2005
This is the story of Robinson family shipwrecked on an island [not Mars]. I was intrigued to find out how Liam Cunningham fared in this role after watching Falling For a Dancer and Dog Soldiers. I really enjoy his acting.

His wife, two older sons and a daughter land on the island with him. He being bound for the convict island of Australia.

A younger son, Jacob, had been put on a small boat escaping the wrecking of the ship. He is not reunited with his family for 7 years.

The one son is always going against his father's decisions if he makes better sense of his own instincts. But the boys seem to work well with each other.

Oh yes, there is an involuntary drop-off of another female to confuse the issue. And daddy is hot on her trail. Well, the trail of the pirates anyway.

Then they meet a native [great body] and he helps them and also helps save Laura? And becomes a saving factor in the end.

The pirate Captian is a scoundrel and always putting the moves on Robinson's wife. He also turns Jake, the Robinson's son into a pirate.

Those pirates provide plenty of action - not necessarily good.

The rescue and resolution was all that was hoped for.

The actors were excellent - the scenery was spectacular - the story a classic - and definitely a credit to the Hallmark trademark

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - great family movie -- tons of color - [grin, lots of water]

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie!!! October 2, 2006
A Kid's Review
I found this movie very entertaining!!! It also had great acting! I originally heard about this movie because it has my favorite actor--Jesse Spencer, who plays Fritz--in it. The atmosphere was very nice! Stranded has sort of a action, drama, and romance theme going on. Which makes it great for anyone! If you're like me, you'll find yourself teary-eyed near the end. Both from sadness and then hapiness. Overall, I think this movie was worth watching! It should be a PG rating; maybe 10 +

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised December 21, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful and lavish production that has more eye candy than computer generated space movies.

I bought this thinking it would be the 120 minute version that Amazon states. Sometimes things work out for the worse, but this time I was pleasantly surprised with the 180 minute version. I had to get that out because it allowed a lot of sub-plots that I can imagine were cut. We get to see how the Robinsons learned to subsist, as well as how the one son got along, being away from the family for all of those years. In fact, these were not just brief moments of showing what was going on in the son's life, but there were whole new plots involved that made this a very fulfilling movie and well worth the time invested. I could not name one of the actors in the movie. I did note someone named Liam. I could reach ten inches from here and grab the info, but the names would still mean little to me. That's sort of the point. Good acting, though maybe not great, and parts that were written from story, not thinking, "well, since we have Brad Pitt (who?), we'll have to throw in some meaty lines, inside jokes, and modern humour." Thank you, no. I'll take this type of well done production any day of the week.

Next time I need to sip some tea and get lost into a beautiful, exotic dream, this movie will be at the top of the list.

I thought it was better than Swiss Family Robinson. There wasn't a dull moment, and the acting was great! It was filmed in Krabi, Thailand.
