bad preview,good movie.

the preview for this movie is not very doesn't show much of the real excitement of the film. the movie has a wonderful story to it and is very heartwarming.i loved it just the way i love any other movie with tom hanks in it.i truly recommend it(:

One of the greatest of all time

It may just be another lost at sea, deserted island movies, but Cast Away captures every essence, every feeling of inner escape, helplessness, and triumph.

Tom Hanks, the director, and the entire crew set up this movie to relate to the viewer, making this a movie that keeps you coming back over and over again.

Wilson is timeless, and probably the biggest influence on why this movie is known, but in my opinion, there are a plethora of reasons why Cast Away deserves to be bought. Trust me- don't rent it. Buy it. You wont regret it.

So Emotional and Touching!

This is one of my fav movie... This story tells the positive approach of a man in his life.. Superb acting by Tom Hanks with out any dialogs!! Chanceless!! I would recommend this...
