Editorial Reviews

Young Jim Hawkins is the only one who can successfully get a schooner to a legendary Island known for buried treasure. But aboard the ship is a mysterious cook named John Silver (Emmy winner Eddie Izzard, The Riches ), whose true motivation on the journey challenges Jim s trust in the entire crew. This is an exciting and atmospheric new take on the definitive pirate action adventure of reckless buccaneers, buried fortunes and a friendship forged in peril on the high seas.

Customer Reviews

Overall great acting, great story, and a great movie.
Hephaestus
It has been many years since I read the book, and I haven't seen any of the other film versions, but I did like this much better than I expected.
Homefire
There was no reason to make Squire John Trelawney into a bad person.

I had virtually no interest in seeing yet another adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Treasure Island." I could recite the story forward and backwards by heart, and I just didn't have the passion to sit down to this two-part version as recently broadcast on the SyFy network (thankfully, though, they didn't make it--just premiered it). I relented, however, and was pleasantly surprised. As with many film interpretations, this one does take liberties with the book's narrative. If that's a huge issue for you, then you should probably just read the book again. What it does present, though, is in keeping with the story's tone and makes for a solid stand-alone film. An interesting cast and gorgeous location footage are among the highlights of this "Treasure Island," a dark and morally ambiguous vision.

I was instantly attracted to the movie's skewed feverish look and thought things got off to a great start. After introducing the cast of characters and getting them to sea, though, I felt like the momentum started to wane a bit. For me, the first part was about 3 stars. There were enough good elements, however, for me to stick around and the film got progressively stronger and more interesting in Part Two (which was easily 4 stars). I'm not going to explain the plot in any detail, but a lot of the story is driven by the complex relationship between outlaw Long John Silver (Eddie Izzard) and young Jim Hawkins (Toby Regbo). Sometimes allies, sometimes foes--these two form an unlikely and unexpected bond in which you never know exactly who's up to no good. As the different parties race for the treasure, Jim is caught between. Might Silver be more heroic than you first imagine? May some of the Jim's excursion be more corruptible than he'd like?

Having read the book, I was curious to see how close the movie would follow the story. Overall, the movie did a very good job. There were some artistic liberties taken, when aren't there, but these changes did not severely alter the overall storyline. I liked that the pirates were portrayed realistically and not softened up to make them come across like buffoons or simpletons. Eddie Izzard did a great job of portraying Long John Silver, so much so that I can understand how Jim Hawkins could be torn between like and detesting the man all at the same time. Will definitely purchase for my media library.

I'm a big fan of the original story and this is hands down my favorite film version of Treasure Island. The acting is excellent and Eddie Izzard played the role of John Silver perfectly. There are some minor changes to the original Robert Louis Stevenson story but it works for the film and the main core of the story is intact. Parents should keep in mind, this version is a bit darker and more serious than previous softer, more family friendly versions of Treasure Island, but that is my main reason for liking this one so much. I'm already pre-ordering my copy.

"I will plan a venture Jim Hawkins and we will both profit wildly. Trust me boy." After Long John Silver (Izzard) is double crossed by his captain Flint (Sutherland) he only has one thing on his mind. Retreiving the treasure he feels is rightly his. When finding out that the only one who can get a ship to the island where the treasure is is a young boy named Jim Hawkins (Regbo) he makes friends with him. I have never seen any of the other versions of this nor read the book. I knew a little of the story but to me this was about 90% new to me. Even though this is a made for TV movie it is much better then most of the theater movies that have been released recently. Izzard is a perfect choice for this and I think is on par with Depp. This movie is very entertaining and I recommend it. This is a pirate movie that can stand side by side with the first "Pirates Of The Carribbean" movie, and may actually be better in some ways. This is a movie well worth your time. Overall, best pirate movie since the original Pirates. I enjoyed it. I say B+.

This is a charming, dramatic and splendid interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Treasure Island'.
I found the cast delightful and imaginative with dark, tough, superstitious, violent yet charismatic pirates and the lure of magical untold riches just around the bend. Eddie Izzard is perfectly cast as John Silver (he's a pirate I'd certainly follow) and the representatives of 'society and justice' are as cruel, violent and arbitrary as the pirates they fight against. There are no easy heroes or simple villains in this film. Full of charm and fine actors such as Rupert Penry Jones and Elijah Woods, this is a wonderful treat!

Movies about pirates are all the rage since Pirates of the Caribbean dominated the box office in the prior decade. Some have been good, some have been bad. Then there is this great miniseries from the SyFy channel starring various actor and actresses from both sides of the Atlantic. Like other famous stories done up by the people at SyFy, this one is very impressive and original. The story itself is similar to the original novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, and most of the characters in the book are present here. But many changes were made, and for fans of the book, that might be quite disappointing. However, for those interested in a good movie this one is quite enjoyable. Part comedy, part action, part drama and part thriller, the movie does everything well. The dialogue is spot on, with grammar and vocabulary matching those found in English language books from the late 1700s. The make-up and costume design are very realistic, yet do not remind one of that found in the POTC movies. The action scenes are good with realistic sword-fight scenes, accurate portrayals of fire-arms and fire-arm usage back then, and good but limited usage of special effects. Even the music is good, with the sailors' songs being quite entertaining. Overall, a great watching experience.
