When Angelino Jack Robinson gets a new job in Australia, he decides to take his wife Ann, sons Shane and Todd and daughter Elisabeth 'Lizzy' by sailing yacht from Hong Kong to Syndney. The gun he gets thrown in by Sheldon Blake proves disabled, and for a sinister reason: near Borneo, Blake's men turn up to capture them. The family escapes but loses the yacht on a reef. They build a cool camp on an island. But the pirates keep coming back, and the boys discover why: he hid a treasure in the yacht. Shane is also discovered and captured in more than one way by French plane wreck survivor Françoise, who later teams up with the family. Written by
I must admit, this was not a good movie and I'm not hard to please when it comes to movies of this genre. It's a kids movie so I go in knowing that. However the writing lacks any kind of cohesion, the plot even for a kids adventure movie is full of holes. The original had great chemistry between the cast members, here there is no chemistry between any members of the cast. The acting is bad, the only ones I think acted decently and Seymour and the little girl, every one else seems to be delivering lines. The girl playing Francoise was simply beyond ridiculous in the beginning.
My suggestion is to stick to the original or the TV series they are older yes but far superior to this movie.
