There is not much new in this sequel to "Treasure Island", which has Robert Newton return in the role of "Long John Silver" and getting involved in new adventures that nevertheless have a familiar feel to them, but it is still an entertaining movie. Made four years after the original, it has Kit Taylor replacing Bobby Driscoll as Jim Hawkins, but the relationship between the characters is still much the same.

Horrible - I would never watch this again. Bad acting, bad everything.

Robert Newton's hammy performance is ideal for the Long John Silver character. It is the role he is most identified with and he is great. Following this film was a television series with much of the same cast.
