ZEDD'S OPINION:

Well, first of all the story like the book it's based on it long and slow. Second, in my opinion his name should have been Robinson Crusoe which it wasn't. But it does have a unique twist on an old story and I give it 3 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

As y'all know last November I gave this movie one of the BEST OF THE WORST awards because in it's unique way this movie is worth watching. It has a great cast, great effects for the time and a unique twist on the Robinson Crusoe book. 6 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (A unique twist on an old story)
+ EFFECTS (For the time excellent)
+ CAST (Which includes Adam West Pre-Batman)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- SLOW (Like the book, it's kind of slow.)
- NAME (His name should have been Crusoe.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a fan of the book, Robinson Crusoe, then this isn't the movie for you.)
