I have got more information about this excellent movie
7 March 2001 | by (Lunteren, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised someone has written about this movie, because you cannot find it easily in the shops.

The movie tells the story of a 12-year old boy, Jimmy (played bij Itaco Nardulli), who lives in the year 2300 at Sicily in an abandoned spacecentre. His mother owns the inn. This is the place where Billy Bones arrives, and later on the scoundrels: they are looking for the treasuremap. Of course the story is well-known. But this time it all happens in outer space. A marvellous idea, because I like sf-films.

Fortunately I have got this film on VHS-tape as one complete movie with a length of 2h and 25 minutes; English spoken with Dutch subtitles. Unfortunately the quality of the tape is not as it should be. I will try to make a scan of the cover, so that Imdb can show it on the empty place of the page of "Tresure Island in outer space" or "Isola del tesoro,L" if they still want it of course.

My opinion is: a feel-good movie, suitable for all ages above 8, with great adventure and humour and suspence. I will vote for this film and mark it with a 9.

Greetings from The Netherlands, Govert van der Kemp.
