The film that gave John Rhys-Davies his big break
23 October 2015 | by tt-76643See all my reviews

A family friendly classic that all can enjoy. All who recorded it onto video cassette back when it was released in the 80's that is. For sadly, this masterpiece of a film was only ever made for television.

Featuring outstanding performances from John Rhys-Davies and Norman Bowler (and fairly terrible performances from half of the rest of the cast, it has to be said) this film is a roller-coaster of action - from explosions to birds flying in through windows, from boat chases to frogs hopping out of bowls.

The Island of Adventure needs to be re-released, preferably a full HD remastered version, so that everyone can come to love the many colourful catchphrases from this fantastic film: "I hate mackerel pie", "She flew in through the window?", "No wonder they call this place Piccadilly Circus" and "Now you see what it is like when the servant becomes the master!"
