2012 Treasure Island
« on: May 01, 2013, 02:41:43 PM »
Has anyone seen the recent (2012) Treasure Island? It's a two part mini-series, Eddie Izzard plays Long John Silver, and some other top tier actors appear in small roles.

I thought overall that it was a pretty good take on the novel, but it veers from the book in a couple of ways that bugged me.

Good atmosphere, and I thought the young actor who played Jim Hawkins was pretty good.

Any one else want to weigh in?

I absolutely loved the sound track, but have not been able to acquire a copy of it. As far as the movie goes, I enjoyed it.

It is very much a darker version, I think, and inserted a few interesting wrinkles into the story which was kinda neat.  I'd call it a re-imagining of the story.  It is out on DVD.
