I first saw "Shipwrecked" when I was about 7 years old on vacation in Disney World with my family. Ever since then, it has been an absolute favorite movie of mine. The effects are good, the gorilla (although not ENTIRELY realistic) is a wonderful character and looking at Stain Smestad and Gabriel Byrne is not exactly a chore. ALSO, the soundtrack is BEAUTIFUL. I hope to get it on CD one day. If you get a chance, rent the movie. You won't regret it.

When his sailor-father is injured and unable to go to sea again, 14-year old Haakon takes his place. Hunky sailor Jens goes with him to act as protector, mentor, and big brother (and incidentally provides enough beefcake to keep the adults watching). After some Treasure Island-style adventuring, they encounter scrappy stowaway Mary, whose bond with Haakon remains strictly in the platonic sisterly affection camp -- no prepubescent romances here! The three of them are shipwrecked on a South Seas island (with a gorilla, for some reason). They encounter a native tribe (friendly, of course), buried treasure, and pirates before they return to Norway, one big happy family.
The action is good, the buddy-bonding touching, and it is refreshing these days to see a child in the movies who gets to be a child, rather than a leering 30-year old in a prepubescent body.

Me and my sister have seen this film a "few too many" times. We have even come up with nicknames for the backround characters (ex: Guy On The Log for the man who makes a strange face while crossing the fallen tree) Our number one favorite characters are Captain (Gabriel Byrne) and Ooga (the giant silver-back gorilla who makes all of 3 appearances throughout the movie) We both love this movie and fully recommend it for people of all ages. You haven't seen it enough unless you've watched it all in slow motion. Too bad it isn't here...

Format: DVD
In this film entitled Ship Wrecked (or Haakon Haakonsen) directed by Nils Gaup, a young Norwegian boy named Haakon [see bottom right DVD release cover] (played by Stian Smestad) volunteers to work as a cabin boy after his father receives an injury that prevents him from earning money for his family and paying back a debt owed to a fellow Norwegianer. While on the ship, Haakon becomes suspicious of Lt. John Merrick [man holding the pistol on the DVD cover] (played by Gabriel Byrne). However, before Haakon can inform the captain (played by Kjell Stormoen) of his suspicious, the captain "dies." While the captain's death is naturally suspicious, there was nothing Haakon or the crew could do except resign themselves to Lt. John Merrick's dictatorial leadership.

Without giving away anything more than the rising action, let this review state that the film is rather predictable - a blend between a Home Alone 3 and Walt Disney's Treasure Island in terms of action. The film appealed to me personally as a child growing up in the 1990s because it did not seem to sugarcoat (like many Disney films of the late 1990s under Michael Eisner's poor leadership) the fact that there are problems, and evil, in the world. Lt. John Merrick represents a fairly accurate example in terms of villainy (as does Danglars in Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo or Compeyson in Dickens' Great Expectations).

Haakon, as the protagonist, shows great concern for those he cares about, saving them from the evil "Merrick" and risking his life in the process. In fact, he represents such a complete opposite to the murderous Merrick that I cannot personally help but rejoice at the humorous resolution to the film, which I will not reveal.

This is definitely my #1 adventure movie of all time!!! I enjoy watching it periodically ever since i first saw it in 1991. It is so interesting since there is a hurricane involved in it, as well as survival on a desert island. I will always rank it high on my list!!

From first seeing this film in 1991 (I was 9), it became an instant classic for me and my childhood.
It became my "sick day" movie. Whenever my sister or I took a sick day from school, we would have to watch Shipwrecked. It probably drove my mother nuts.
The kids will enjoy it, and adults won't get bored, either. I watched it recently for the first time in years, and I still found it pretty interesting.
It's not a blockbuster, it's not supposed to be. But it's a classy family film nonetheless, which might be hard to find in Disney these days.
Some pluses: the scenery is excellent (shot in three international locations), the music is superb, and the plot will keep you interested.
I strongly recommend it.

This movie should be reissued for a whole new generation of youngsters.

It's a beautiful tale, with just the kind of imagination inspiring adventure that young children love. The heros demonstrate innocence, strong character, hard work, self sacrifice, family ties, honesty, loyalty and resourcefulness. Beautiful scenary to boot. I for one don't miss the profanity, commercialism, immorality and shallowness that seems to be so common in many of the popular films today.
