A creative adaption of Stevenson's work
13 December 1999 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

The film Ebb-Tide is a creative adaption of R.L. Stevenson's story. Using the location and much of the original story, the script then brings in essentially new characters (thus the different names) with new motivation. While purists will no doubt howl and cry foul, I liked this version because I didn't care for the rather stolid, preachy original story.

Robbie Coltrane gives his usual solid performance. Steven Mackintosh creates his usual ambiguous, multidimensional character, and Chris Barnes gives a nice performance in a larger role.

This is a good-looking production with some flaws. For example, there is never wind in the sails during dialogue scenes, and how they sail from what is clearly the Caribbean to Australia is carefully avoided.
