A faithful adaptation of the classic novel that follows the attempt of young Jim Hawkins and his adult companions to find a legendary pirate treasure that's also coveted by their cook, who's actually an infamous pirate, Long John Silver.
During the opening credits, the Dutch character played by German actor Reiner Schöne is listed as 'Van der Brecken', which is the correct Dutch capitalization. But in the end credits he is always listed as 'Van Der Brecken', which is incorrect. See more »
Admittedly, it's been a long time since I saw this, and no doubt my memories are a bit rose-colored, but I loved this mini-series. The idea of doing a sequel to one of the all-time classic adventures stories was outrageous, but the filmmaker's treated the material with respect and created something that actually added to the original material. And Brian Blessed, in my opinion, will always be the definitive Long John Silver. This one should be on DVD.
