PIRATES OF TREASURE ISLAND

Yet another Asylum film that Lance Henriksen has chosen to be apart of and once again I had to buy it, this one at least is better than the last by a long shot. The last being that Da Vinci film this one at least is entertaining through out, well for the most part. This is well you guess it one of many films based on the Treasure Island book, and it was also released when a famous Depp film was released. I am certain you know what movie I am talking about.

This film is about what you would already expect from a movie with its name, and island with treasure on it. There are a group of pirates who are after the treasure and are looking to return to the island and then a group of travelers who are on their way there as well, only a few of them know the real reason why they are going. Of course both groups are on the ship together not knowing about each other or their motives. That is until our lead character hears John Silver discussing his plans with his fellow pirates, and that leads to an interesting deal being made.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's novel writers Carlos de los Rios, David Michael Latt [also producer], and Leigh Scott [also director] did a good job especially compared to other Asylum films. Don't get me wrong this is far from an academy award but hey at least it is full of b fun, know what I mean. Acting wise it is pretty much the same, bad but on a good level. Tom Nagel is our lead as Jim Hawkins and he was ok in this film and Rebekah Kochan was good as Anne Bonney. Lance Henriksen is good as Long John Silver but you can tell he was just having fun with the character, in fact the same can be said about the whole cast.

The film is full of bad effects such as the creatures on the island but that is part of the film's charm I guess. The sets look bad but once again that is part of the appeal I think of this film, I don't know maybe I am being to nice to the film but we all liked it. If you have to have a good looking film with excellent sets, and effects, and whatever then this one is very much not for you. But if you don't mind so called "b" films and all the things most lack then this one is for you.

Asylum is one of those film makers that I know the movies are below high quality and yet, sometimes one needs to see such films in a year. Nice review, Alex!
