Storyline

It's Christmas and Zip and Zap are up to their old tricks. But this time they've gone too far and their punishment will be no Christmas vacation and a seemingly boring boat trip with their parents instead. To their surprise, the destination is a spectacular remote island. But a terrifying storm rolls in and they're forced to seek shelter at a mansion belonging to the eccentric Miss Pam, where children without families enjoy a paradise with no rules. Helped by their new friends, Flecky, Macky and Pippi, the brothers discover that their parents' sudden disappearance in the middle of the night is related to the mysterious secret behind the island and its strange inhabitants.

Attractive and charming film about the popular twins with action , thrills , fantasy and fun incidents
13 October 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Big budgeted production about the roguish and known twins that packs emotion , laughs , fantastic events and funny happenings. It is Christmas and twins are up to their old tricks . Naughty twins are punished for firing a toy shop and sent to a seemingly boring vacation by a boat trip . They embark along with their parents ,Carolina Lapausa , Jordi Bosch. But a terrifying storm rolls in and they are forced to seek shelter .They disembark at an Island , there meet an orphanage where children live without families and no rules , being run by the eccentric ruler Elena Anaya and assisted by an old servant , Fermi Reixach. But the parents suddenly disappear in the middle of night , and the naughty brothers discover a surprising secret behind the Island and its strange inhabitants .

Funny movie with plenty of thrills and adventures , being really influenced by Jules Verne : 20000 leagues underwater , Mysterious Island , HG Wells' Invisible man , J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan , among others .Adventure movie has everything for besument , and generates a sense of marvel , wonder and surprise with fast paced scenes and state-of-art FX that have you on the edge of your sea . This time the twins have gone too far and their punishment will be no Christmas vacation, to travel a mysterious destination at a remote island where they will find a lot of surprises and mysteries . According to director Oskar Santos was a lovely homage based on Luis Escobar characters . Sympathetic acting by the complete cast as Zipi , Zape played by Teo Planell, Toni Gómez , the eccentric orphanage keeper marvelously played by Elena Anaya and parents performed by Jordi Bosch, Carolina Lapausa .This Fernando Bovaira production , lavishly shot , is a fun and enjoyable movie concerning the beloved twins carrying out pranks , antics , frolics , mischiefs and winding in up into a rollercoaster adventure . However , it has little fidelity to the comic books , being a free renditíon.

It has a colorful and glimmering cinematography by Daniel Segura . And a rousing and impressive musical score by Fernando Velazquez . The motion picture was well directed by Oskar Santos who previously made Zipi , Zape y el club de la canica , For the good of others and TV series as Hispania and Crematorio. Produced in big budget by Fernando Bovaira who has financed many hit smashes such as : ¨Fin¨, ¨Sea inside¨ , ¨The Others¨ and ¨Mortadelo and Filemón¨. Rating : above average , well worth watching .

Other films about ¨Zipi and Zape¨ by Escobar are the followings : ¨Aventures of Zipi and Zape¨ by Enrique Guevara with Mary Santpere as Tía Aniceta , Alfred Lucchetti as Don Minervo , Marta Angelat as Doña Jaimita Zapatilla , Joan Monleón as Don Pantuflo Zapatilla and ¨Zipi y Zape" (2003) cartoon TV series by Claudio Biern Boyd . And ¨Zipi and Zape y el club de la canica¨2014 by Oskar Santos .
