Some very nice roles
5 May 2012 | by (Magalia, Ca, United States) – See all my reviews

Izzard, Sosanya and Wood, did justice to roles that were totally contrary to their normal acting parts. Best acting was Mays (as the doctor), and Henderson (as Meg Hawkins).

I read the original 'Treasure Island' back in 8th grade. While this was a modern 'adaptation', that drifted from the original book, it fleshed out personalities and background stories. I did appreciate the way they stayed true to the verbal vernacular. I found it to be an excellent update.

My only beef was the 'hand-held camera' filming in an attempt to be 'edgy'.
