In the book, Gray the carpenter's mate, not the coxswain, as Hands holds that position initially joins the mutineers, but then defects after Captain Smollett appeals to his better nature. Then there is the awful script which simply is not appropriate for the time period. It's perfectly understandable that they not use the book's ending, Disney didn't even do that, but this unique ending takes the whole story off course and changes the genre from pure adventure to something of a morality tale. Therefore, while watching this I really couldn't compare the story and the characters with the original, which I guess was a blessing. Although it retains the basic skeleton of the original plot, much has been added, and many key characters have undergone fundamental changes.
Equally black sailors would likely not have been as uncommon as all that as it would make sense for an escaped slave to attempt to take to the sea as a way of avoiding pursuit and a good way for a freed slave to make a living. His surname is not given in the book. Yes, it must have been easy money for Donnie Sutherland but what the hey. My only beef was the 'hand-held camera' filming in an attempt to be 'edgy'. Synopsis Ever since his adventure in the center of the Earth, Sean Anderson has been looking for other places mentioned by Verne and other Vernians. Sure the film has it flaws but it gripped me from the beginning to the end. Locations were wonderful and well matched with the images I had in my mind about the Treasure island since my childhood.
I also like Robert Newton who will always be Long John Silver. The story is based on 's novel, with a screenplay written by Genki Kawamura - the producer of and. And the only reason I am a able to rate it just above the lowest vote is that some of the outdoor scenes on the coast look realistic. Believing the new island is the treasure island, Nobita recruits Doraemon and Shizuka to journey with him, with Doraemon providing a ship. Casting-wise, I thought it was fine, likewise with the acting. Flint does not appear in the book, but is only spoken of. Well,I only have a vague memory of the novel which I read when I was around 14-15.
The sound is serviceable, though I do agree that it is sometimes hard to hear what the actors are saying. I enjoyed this short series even though, like another viewer, I have not read the book or seen other film interpretations. Gian and Suneo also tag along. While Nobita and Doraemon delay the activation of the pirate ship's engine, Flock is able to seize control of the ship and eject the energy back into Earth. He is notified about a coded message, and breaks into a satellite facility to fully receive it. The acting is atrocious and unconvincing.
I do agree with those who say that Eddie Izzard steals the show. Also nice to see people with a range of accents as would have been the case rather than just the stereotypical bristol accents. The screenplay was written by , produced by and directed by. Characters were depicted nicely and felt quite real and believable. Izzard, Sosanya and Wood, did justice to roles that were totally contrary to their normal acting parts.
The direction of the picture is poor and is all over the place. The whole character of this wonderful book has been spoilt by the direction. Of the three the best was the 1990 one, though all three have many good merits with the performance of Long John especially Robert Newton's being the main good asset in all three. He is not named in the book. Action scenes were decent without unnecessary flamboyance. At the same time, the media announces the discovery of a completely unknown island. If anything for me, Elijah Wood was the weak link in the cast as Ben Gunn, I can't place my finger exactly on why it is, maybe the wooden delivery of the lines or the lack of charisma but his performance came across as bland.
I've also read the book more than once and love it. Long John is such a delicious character to portray, but also one that can easily fall into caricature. He is not a former member of Flint's crew. Along with Gabato and Kailani, Sean embarks on a mission to find his grandfather, the legendary Vernian Alexander. The rest of the cast are also very very good but Izzard really stands out. Meanwhile, on the pirate ship, Shizuka encounters Sarah, Flock's sister. After, I might rant at the screen for 3 hours as another reviewer says, but as a first impression, I thought it was good entertainment.
It is not a great performance by all means, but Mays is much better than he was in his miscast role in the awful Outcasts, and tries his best. Much of the dialogue is modern day east London slang. Captain Silver then moves on the final stage of his plan. Nobita and his friends are unable to rescue her, but save an unconscious boy named Flock. More running time, I guess In some important ways it's even more faithful, and even adds a few interesting ingredients. This film was released on March 3, 2018 in Japan.
Watch those old movies or better still, read the book. The locations, ship and costumes are superb and really bring to life the squalor of the times and the urge for riches as the only way out. I'll first point out that I haven't seen any of the other older versions of Treasure Island, nor was I familiar with the story prior to watching this. . It is very good entertainment with a very decent cast, including Eddie Izzard, and enough tightness in the script to make it very watchable.
