Treasure Island (2012) Rated NR

Treasure Island 2012Jim Hawkins is the only one who can successfully get a schooner to an island full of treasure. Based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. Starring Eddie Izzard, Toby Regbo, Rupert Penry-Jones, Donald Sutherland, Elijah Wood, Shirley Henderson.

This miniseries was quite intriguing, even if it did deviate from the original story and other film adaptations.  I thought Izzard as Long John Silver was perfect, and Wood’s performance as Ben Gunn was one of his finest yet.  I must admit that I haven’t read Stevenson’s novel, so those who have may not enjoy this film as much as I did.  For those less familiar with the story, I think you will find it fascinating, as I did.  I think it is worth a watch.
