I've read through these comments with some amusement. I've also read the book more than once and love it. I also like Robert Newton who will always be Long John Silver. But I don't care about the changes, the inaccuracies, the altered story or anything else found to criticise this film. It is very good entertainment with a very decent cast, including Eddie Izzard, and enough tightness in the script to make it very watchable. Watching it on DVD without ads obviously helps but I cannot understand how anyone could not enjoy this adventure because that is what it is. It's not an attempt to produce a classic but a simple effort in producing a good, well told story. Damned good fun.
