When Angelino Jack Robinson gets a new job in Australia, he decides to take his wife Ann, sons Shane and Todd and daughter Elisabeth 'Lizzy' by sailing yacht from Hong Kong to Syndney. The gun he gets thrown in by Sheldon Blake proves disabled, and for a sinister reason: near Borneo, Blake's men turn up to capture them. The family escapes but loses the yacht on a reef. They build a cool camp on an island. But the pirates keep coming back, and the boys discover why: he hid a treasure in the yacht. Shane is also discovered and captured in more than one way by French plane wreck survivor Françoise, who later teams up with the family. Written by KGF Vissers

I am in lack of words as to how amazed I am, that this movie exists..

This movie contains very serious with pirates shooting and wild animals (sharks, panther, crocs, apes...), and in other times the movie changes to almost circus clown comedy. As a result it is nothing but a poor script with ridiculous comedy twists, and with so bad special effects and film editing tricks.

To not be insulted by this movie at least a couple of times is impossible, unless you are very very young, or like very childish unthought movies.

I am amazed I haven't changed the channel after one hour, but more amazed that it is being shown 20:00 on a Saturday.. this should be shown at 06:00 in the morning, when adults sleep...

The orangutang is the worst part of this movie, please adults do not waste time on this, you will hit yourself..
