CAST AWAY (Theatrical Release USA 2000)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Cast Away—written with high creativity and imagination—has heart sprinkled into its survival storyline. This intriguing movie uses FedEx to drive its theme and the introduction of a Wilson volleyball completely works. The action scenes after the plane crashes need improvement.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Director Robert Zemeckis and Actor Tom Hanks work beautifully together to produce a movie without the usual dialogue or supporting cast and they completely succeed.
