Pretty run-of-the-mill Nature drama about 3 people marooned on an island...the REAL reason I was hooked watching this on Showtime one night was because of the GORGEOUS Kelly Brook. Arguably the most gorgeous women I've seen in a film in the last 10 years if not more (not exaggerating). She's in a teeny white bikini through 80% of the film too (bonus). Worth owning just on her hottness alone (lol).
For what its worth, Billy Zane is back in "Titanic-villian" mode again for this one...the guy you LOVE to hate!
Pretty shallow review for the most part, I know, but I can't lie, if your a flesh & blood man that loves the sight of a beautiful woman parading around in a tiny bikini, check out Survival Island!

Kelly Brook, get's the two stars for her obvious "TALENTS"

"Well, I read somewhere in a review that this movie truly was meant for women. Myself, looking at Kelly Brook, I can't see how that remark is justified. In many ways it might be true since the concept and story is almost something you find in the typical cheap and dirty romance novels.
How is Kelly Brook's character, the heroine? Granted she plays the character of a beautiful slightly-dimwitted wife of a rich insecure jerk, stranded in a deserted island with an attractive Latin jack-of-all-trades. Typical and expected, the wife has an illicit affair with "Manuel" the Latin hard-throve. What bothers me really, is that the husband is made to be the villain, when his insecurities and suspicions where in fact correct and justified. He may have initially being a jerk, she married him anyway, perhaps for his ability to provide? Then again, maybe I am looking too much into this one than what it deserves.
To be really honest, I was channel browsing and had a sudden glimpse of Kelly Brook, so I put the remote control down. I only missed about 10 minutes of the whole movie. The dialog was horrendous and unnatural, in my opinion. Kelly was made to be really dumb and overly demure, and the couple doing the dishonorable act was made to be the victim and heroine, or survivor.
The concept and acting was shallow, vain, and superficial. The scenes seemed inconsistent. For example: a Tribal ritual is introduced at the end without anything ever leading to it. This flick reminded me somehow of those old 1970s B movies of women in jail, etc. Where the acting was not of high priority. Again, two stars for Kelly's obvious "Talents" if you know what I'm referring to."

"The original title for this late night cinemax fare was "Three" and it is the brain child of Billy Zane and his (real) wife Kelly Brook who both co-star in this by the numbers thriller. So as for the plot we have a rich couple (Zane and Brook) on a fishing trip with friends. The boat promptly sinks and the couple, along with the poor deck hand Pablo, wash ashore on a deserted island with no food, and a few supplies. Most notably goggles, a lighter, and obviously plenty of razors and shaving supplies as throughout their long stay on the island they all appear perfectly groomed. The laws of late night cimemax kick in and a love triangle developes with the expected results. I was entertained on my first viewing, mostly due to topless Kelly Brook and as another viewer mentions, there is a twist at the end. Overall this effort by Zane and Brook is a notch above the standard late night cinemax flick. I give three stars to "Three.""
5 Stars for Kelly Brook!

"If you like Kelly Brook the British bombshell you should see this movie! Kelly is hot running around the island in a white bikini. There are also some nude scenes and Kelly shows off her perfect legs, ample mellons and her perfect shape. After she washes ashore on the island we see her laying on her tummy in the sand until she regains her strength. The camera hovers on her butt for a bit. Thank you! She has the perfect bottom. Also lots of skinny dip scenes with Kelly topless and less. She gets attacked by the sailor and this scene goes completely nude. There is a surprise twist to this scene.
Kelly Brook fans will enjoy this movie!"

"Kelly Brook is an Awesome looking British Model. The story is entertaining..at least more so than the standard SKin-A-MAX type shows....Some nudity...some blod and violence...a ship wrecked threesome."
Worth seeing only for Kelly Brook

"Caught this on cable. It's a ridiculous plot with annoying characters and lengthy dialogue scenes that go on forever (which I fast-forwarded through), but there's some nice underwater scenery (no, seriously).
The only thing that makes this movie completely worth watching on cable, renting, or, at seven bucks, maybe even buying is Kelly Brook, who spends pretty much the entire movie looking AMAZING in a white bikini (very impressive assets). She's also topless quite often, although, until the second half of the film, the shots are fairly quick.
There's also a couple shots of her bare butt, but no frontal nudity. (Big continuity error when she goes skinny-dipping, but comes out of the ocean clearly wearing her bottoms.)
There's also a couple sex scenes; the first one early in the film with Billy Zane features Brook with her hands bound by a leather belt. It's all very hot, but she keeps her arms in the air, well above her head, and it just looked artificial and silly, like Sharon Stone's sex scenes in Basic Instinct. (Not that I'm complaining...)
But I had trouble dealing with how bald Billy Zane was. I'm proud for him that he's willing to not go the Sean Connery route and cover it up with a rug, but it was still unsettling. Oh, and I've always liked Zane, but his performance was awkward; maybe because his character's paranoia about his wife's fidelity (before she actually committed adultery) was absurd."
