The Blue Lagoon: Brief Review

The Blue Lagoon, directed by Randal Kleiser (1980), is a film about children who are marooned on a tropical island with limited contact with adults throughout their life and develop their own way of life. The idea of the film is interesting. Its truly wild with how far they took it. The acting was mediocre at best with half the dialog being shouted or over expressed. Made it hard to connect with the characters. There was also no need to have naked children throughout the whole film. The construction of buildings, day to day life, and the potential fruition of escape is the truly interesting portion of this film. The romance was unnecessary as it was caused due to limited prospects and also muddles the line of appropriate behavior as they are cousins. At the end of the day, it’s ok to skip this one since it’s fine at best.
