Overview

One of the most popular adventure stories of all time gets an exciting new screen adaptation in this made-for-TV movie, based on Johann David Wyss' The Swiss Family Robinson. When Mr. and Mrs. Robinson (Liam Cunningham and Brana Bajic) decide to leave their home in Switzerland and start a new life in the United States, they know they and their children will be setting out on the adventure of a lifetime. However, when their ship sinks in a violent storm at sea, the Robinsons are faced with challenges they never expected; they make their way to a small island and must learn how to survive with only their wits to guide them. In time, the Robinson family manages to not merely survive, but thrive in their new home. When a band of ruthless pirates lands on the island, they have to defend their home and themselves while pondering if this could be their last opportunity to return to civilization. Stranded also stars Jesse Spencer, Bonnie Wright, Emma Pierson, Charlie Lucas, Andrew Lee Potts, and Neil Newbon as the Robinson children.

Only one of the three reviews here are for this particular movie, so I thought I'd add a correct review. This movie is a good adaptation of the book, Swiss Family Robinson, it is a wonderful family film that shows the power of family togetherness.

Stranded on Mars with no hope of rescue this poorly written, badly dubbed, annoying movie left me wanting the characters to die quickly so that I could watch something else. My wife and I laughed our way through the feeble attempts at acting by the entire cast. When it ended we looked at each other wondering why anyone ever would watch this movie. So we assume that we are the only two people on Earth who have ever watched it all the way through.

I believe that this movie is worth a look because it is an honest attempt at telling a story that may in part become a reality in the not too distant future. This is a low budget movie so don¿t expect things like space helmets that magically stow themselves into a nonexistent compartments at the back of the astronauts space suits (Red Planet) or CGI robots that have almost magical powers (Red Planet). The movie used space suits and equipment that look like clunky NASA types all the way. That to me was a big plus because I am absolutely fed up of with the over use of CGI overlays that imbue garments and machines with technologically absurd capabilities. The inside of the Space craft looked like the inside of a NASA shuttle display piece or simulator and I am sure that it was. The sets are good enough to make you believe that the characters are inside of a space craft that we could build today. The technology and sets are used successfully to provide a stage that its good enough for an intelligent SciFi buff to suspend his/her disbelief. The special effects do not have the starring role in this movie so if you simply must have fantastic effects this movie will leave you cold. The landing module section of a NASA type interplanetary ship experiences instrumentation problems enroot to the surface of Mars and crash lands killing the captain on impact and leaving the five remaining crewmen `stranded¿ on Mars with little hope of rescue. With 5 people using up the ships resources they can last for about 15 months inside of the little can that is now their survival shelter. The decision is made by the senior officer played by María Lidón to kick not only herself the pilot but the teams Geologist and Biologist as well out of the ship to die of asphyxiation in day or so of wandering the Martian surface with their cameras on. I had a problem with this unbelievably altruistic and selfless sacrifice. The Director missed an opportunity to fire up the movie with a little conflict and even perhaps a very human explosion of tempers. People even astronauts generally won¿t walk the plank to a very painful death without at least some resistance. So, Jenny (Maria de Medeiros) the ships communications technician and Baglioni (Vincent Gallo) the ships geek of a systems engineer remain inside the ship while The Captain, The Biologist, and the Geologist hit the trail for the rim of Valles Marineris the grandest Canyon in the solar system that just happens to be only a few miles away. The Geologist is the first to succumb to lack of air and just when the other two reach the bottom of the canyon they make an amazing discovery. Back at the ship the geek systems engineer discovers `suddenly¿ that they don¿t really have two years of life support remaining, they have only a few hours of life support remaining. The geek systems engineer makes an awkward play for the unbelievably cute Jenny so that she and he can go out together in a blaze of passion. She of course rejects his primitive advance and goes outside to find a solution to the air loss problem. You almost believe that the geek engineer engineered the situation so that he could grope the foxy little communications officer. (I personally think the flick could have been improved by a nasty attempted rape sequence and conflagration between Jenny and Baglioni leaving Baglioni wounded and alone in the ship to die all by himself and have Jenny hoof it to her comrades in the valley.) In any case the movie ends with the Captain, Jenny and Baglioni all together in an alien structure stranded but alive and well on Mars and existing on indigenous air water and food. The internal sets for the alien structure hold up amazingly well for a ow budget flick in the dark light and degraded video imagery that is used throughout the underground sequences. The rule that seeing less is more is used well in many scenes. One really horrible part is when at the end of the movie t

I purchased this movie because on of my favorite actors is in it, Andrew Lee Potts but i love it because its so genuine. It is a story of survival and its about growing up and mostly its about family. Its a great family film.
