Quotes

Long John Silver: We want the treasure and we'll have it, that's the point. We have the boy and you want him, and we'll trade for the chart.
Captain Smollet: The boy? We don't want the boy. In six months time, he'll be sun-dried and dangling from a gibbet in Tilbury, like all the rest of you.
Long John Silver: But he's one of you!
Captain Smollet: Not any more, Silver.

A Very Enjoyable Movie With An Interesting Twist!
22 January 2008 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

This film does not stray from the original story until the boat lands on Treasure Island! It was a bit shocking at first, but Long John Silver's (Jack Palance) and Jim Hawkins' (Kevin Zegers) superb acting makes this a very enjoyable fantasy to watch!

This is a story of two very elderly men and a very capable teenage boy! Jim Hawkins, while polite, is incredibly resilient and thinks very fast on his feet. And Long John Silver is not some evil minion, but a man of honor who believes in democracy, no less!

My hats off to the filmmakers for having the courage to re-interpret a classic in such a dramatic fashion. It certainly makes you think about Treasure Island in a totally different way!
