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?Read more ›
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!

Very good version of Treasure Island. "Jim" was old enough for his exploits to be believable. In other versions he's been too young, which stretches credulity too much.Published 3 months ago by Galt44
This is a very close adaptation to the book. A few things were changed but that's par for the course with book to film adaptations. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Kiersten

Worried abut the version classic? Go read the book.
This was the first book I read and could not make anything out of it when I was twelve. Did not get the chance to read it again afterward. Thanks to the movie, I don't have to. Read morePublished 4 months ago by WilCal
