Great tense mystery with 3 investigators
14 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie filmed in 2007 in Cape Town,Western Cape, South Africa.

It involves 3 boys around 13 years old who like to solve mysteries. Jupiter, Pete and Bob. Jupiter the leader explains his 2 parents died mysteriously and so that is why he looks for answers to solve a mystery. The boys have a meeting place in a salvage junkyard in an underground like tunnel.Pete's father works in another country and buys 3 airplane tickets for the boys to visit him. The boys have their investigative backpacks along with their clothes.

They land on Skeleton Island and Pete's father knows a rich lady that owns property. It is said that there is a very valuable crown buried in the caves on Skeleton Island. The boys and the lady with her employee like guards take a trip to the caves. There is a black African man that is near the caves the woman wants to enter. She claims she owns the land and wants him off her property. He tells her his ancestors are buried there.

His name is Gamba and has a daughter named Chris who is as old as the boys. Gamba gets arrested because of the lady and Chris is scared for him and wants the boys to help her father.

The 3 investigators act very professional but at times scared to death. They are driven around town, to the caves, to the water etc by Bill who is not who he pretends to be.

There are clues about where the crown is. In the movie a rich white man falls in love with a black woman who I believe was an African woman many years ago and they had relatives from their relationship. He bought the crown for her. The man in the picture that bought the crown is Sir Horatio Wilbur. There are hints written in back of the picture picture that was cut in half him on one side and his love on the other. The mystery is around this couple.

The boys use the picture as a clue and enter the cave. What they find is very dangerous and tender.

The movie has beautiful and colorful scenery with mountains and caves and there are boats on the sea. The music is so good too. Lots of adventure,danger, suspense and very tense at times and a little humor. Surprise action like flying on parachutes, caves collapsing and more.

Good movie to watch. Watch free on Youtube. A green message opens on the left side telling you to visit their site. Put your cursor over the right top a X with a black circle around it appears & it will close that message and the movie starts.

The Three Investigators and the Secret of Skeleton Island about 1hr 30 mins. long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEChSlyo34g
