Critic Reviews for Treasure Island

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

Settles into boredom quickly, meandering at a glacial pace through mutinous developments and character shifts that could have used a punch-up at the script level.

Aside from pretty scenery, however, and perhaps sympathy for the topnotch British talent who join in the field trip, there's scant reason to sign up for this voyage.

It offers more of a realistic than a romantic take on the material; that isn't to say it's a more convincing one.

Treasure Island may move at a snail's pace, but it's a modestly entertaining snail.

Stands out as a gem - although some plot changes for the sake of agitprop make it a flawed one.

Viewers open to experimentation will enjoy simply seeing if they agree with the choices the filmmakers made in their what-if game.
