Intriguing retelling of Stevenson, etc.
31 March 2002 | by (Flagstaff, AZ) – See all my reviews

This was a very good rendition of one of Robert Louis Stevenson's less well-known tales. Quite different from the original story, with a much more sinister tone to it; it actually looks more like it could have been written by William Hope Hodgson than by Stevenson. Solid, entertaining adventure story, with a fine, moody score accompanying it. Robbie Coltrane is excellent as Captain Chisholm, and Steven Mackintosh as the guilt-wracked Swanson and Chris Barnes as the amoral Bunch both turn in convincing performances. Nigel Terry is chilling as the psychotic Ellstrom; Simon Donald has written the part very differently from Stevenson's and Osbourne's original characterization. All in all, a good show for a rainy afternoon.
