Although hailed by critics for gaining and then losing an enormous amount of weight for his role, the more subtly compelling half of Tom Hanks' laudable performance is not his physical transformation. The actor's commitment to crafting an autocratic, obsessive character is a singularly surprising one, given modern-day stars' strong proclivity for playing only heroic, noble leads. The taut script from William Broyles is top-notch, with a flawless traditional structure, an inventive supporting "character" and an ending that, while leaving some audience members dissatisfied, is a realistic and intelligently wrought finale that doesn't cop out with the typically delusional, lame-brained, upbeat conclusion.

Stan pours what's presumably wine for himself and Chuck from a brown paper bag while on a FedEx flight. Various people have wine at a holiday dinner. Chuck sings a few lines from a Doors' song that includes, "Girl we couldn't get much higher" but he's singing the song as related to the word "fire" since he's finally just succeeded at making one.
People have champagne at a party. We see some diluted blood in the surf as Chuck walks through it and then see that his feet are a bit bloody from various cuts he has no shoes. We see Chuck get up from having just been squatted down and evidently relieving himself but we don't see anything other than him getting up from behind a plant and pulling up his pants.
We see Chuck's urine stream between his legs as he urinates in the ocean with his back to the camera.
We see blood in the surf again as Chuck makes his way back to the shore after severely cutting his leg on some coral. Later, after the bleeding has stopped, Chuck examines the wound and it's rather bloody and gory looking.
We see some green looking goo come out of a crab that Chuck has just speared, hoping to make it his dinner but he can't eat it after seeing that. Chuck accidentally cuts his hand and it's rather bloody.
He then washes it off in the surf and we see a bit more blood. We also see his bloody handprint on a volleyball that's later used to make a human-like face on it.
