Critic Reviews for Swallows and Amazons
As clunky as the movie can feel, there's a winning toughness to its unsentimental view of childhood and its nostalgia for a pre-digital age.
It's a charmingly old-fashioned family adventure - one that you can imagine several generations of a family gathering to watch on a rainy grey Sunday afternoon.
It's heartening to see Ransome's fiction taking on a new and more independent form, suggesting an ongoing relevance for a series of books that could easily be viewed as too dated for modern children.
Parental supervision is little more than a wry nod of approval in this natural light-drenched adventure that comes complete with three old-fashioned cheers for the grumpy housekeeper who nonetheless makes them a cake before they set off.
I'll leave the new version to an audience who are either coming to Ransome for the first time or found him a bit dull... Because I'll have to concede, albeit through gritted teeth, that they might like this all-action, espionage-soaked adaptation.
