Storyline

When Angelino Jack Robinson gets a new job in Australia, he decides to take his wife Ann, sons Shane and Todd and daughter Elisabeth 'Lizzy' by sailing yacht from Hong Kong to Syndney. The gun he gets thrown in by Sheldon Blake proves disabled, and for a sinister reason: near Borneo, Blake's men turn up to capture them. The family escapes but loses the yacht on a reef. They build a cool camp on an island. But the pirates keep coming back, and the boys discover why: he hid a treasure in the yacht. Shane is also discovered and captured in more than one way by French plane wreck survivor Françoise, who later teams up with the family. Written by KGF Vissers

Great Family Adventure
27 May 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I like this movie very much. I especially like some of the twists and turns the plot takes. Although some of it is unbelievable that's ok because of the type of family movie it is.It is nice to see James Keach and Jane Seymour working together as husband and wife since they really are. A good movie all around for all ages to enjoy.
