Audience Reviews for Shipwrecked


"Shipwrecked" is a pretty good movie. A young boy sets on a journey to become a sailor. He makes the team, but everything changes when the captain dies and some British Navy sailors take over. The boy finds a female stowaway and everything changes from that point on. Eventually, a storm rises at sea and the boy ends up on an uninhabited island. He soon finds some treasure and finds out that the British Navy sailor in charge is a pirate. Therefore, he must find a way off the island and find his friends before it's too late.
"Shipwrecked" is a cool movie. At times it has some suspense and it'll keep you interested throughout the whole movie. If you like adventure movies, I'd recommend getting "Shipwrecked." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000.

I have no idea why this says that this movie is named after the boy, but I've always known this movie as "Shipwrecked". Came on the Disney channel a long time ago. The Disney Channel CALLED it "Shipwrecked".... Good pirate movie for younger audiences.
