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.

Format: DVD
Disney's Shipwrecked was released in 1990, the same year that I became intimately acquainted with the TNT production of Treasure Island (1990 TVmovie) starring Charlton Heston. My then-ten-year-old self became endlessly obsessed with all things pirates, sailing, and tall ships for years to come. Shipwrecked was a Norwegian production based on by Norwegian author O. V. Falck-Ytter's "Haakon Haakonsen. En norsk Robinson," a Norwegian children's novel from 1873 that was a tale of a "Norwegian Family Robinson." Directed by Nils Gaup and starring almost entirely Norwegian actors, it was filmed on location in Norway, Spain, the UK and Fiji.

The plot revolves around the titular Haakon Haakonsen (Stian Smestad), a young boy in 1850s Norway who is forced to go to sea as a cabin boy when his father is injured on a sea voyage. His father's friend Jens (Trond Peter Stamsø Munch) agrees to look out for him on board the Flora. Haakon goes through some inevitable growing pains as a boy onboard a ship for the first time; some of the seasoned sailors have fun playing pranks on him at first, but Haakon is watched over by Jens and the kindly captain. After a shore leave in Sydney, Haakon discovers a stowaway on board; Mary (Louisa Millwood-Haigh), an orphan trying to reach her uncle in Calcutta). But the voyage meets an abrupt end when a suspicious Royal Navy officer (Gabriel Byrne) takes control of the ship and the crew is shipwrecked in the tropics.

The movie moves along quite well until the ending, which is a tad disappointing in tone after the great setup (it borders on unintentionally comic; for a really great pirate chase, check out the end of Fraser Heston's 1990 made-for-TV Treasure Island for TNT; now there's a scurvy lot to give you nightmares!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Being a Disney film I was a bit surprised to see the main character and family suffering from privation and class bigotry. The usual Disney film characters are very well-fed, white, stain free, and very middle class. To see the main character being 'sold' off to pay a family debt may seem foreign to us now, but I imagine that it was commonplace in many cultures in the past. The parting of the son to begin his duty as cabin boy on a ship was a bit hard to take. The trials he endured were fanciful, his resolution was gratifying, and the end was most satisfying.

My family enjoyed this film, to see a boy thrust into harsh conditions, find a bit of love, survive an accident, and fight for treasure and his love. It did make my daughter swoon at seeing the hero being strong, shirtless, and creative in his battle with evil.

Gabriel Byrne's role as the evil pirate was so cool. Deep down inside I felt that he enjoyed playing the role in this children's story. This is not the first children's film that he's done and I salute him for it. Perhaps the point of the film IS that right always triumphs in the end. It is unfortunate that this DVD is very scarce. It seems that it has been only available through a Disney film club, but no more.

Excellent movie, but why does Disney keep giving us fans the dreaded Pan and Scan versions of great movies? The future of TV is 16X9 TV sets, we want WIDESCREEN versions of movies. When dvd's first came out, they were full screen on one side, widescreen on the other. Now we don't even get the choice. Bummer!
