One of the greatest adventure stories of all time, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island gets a memorable update in this British miniseries, making its U.S. premiere May 5 in a special four-hour broadcast on Syfy. Among the first-rate cast, Donald Sutherland dazzles in a brief appearance as nefarious Captain Flint, while Eddie Izzard’s slyly calculating, rascally Long John Silver is not to be missed. With a script that offers a multi-layered view of both pirates and gentry, and a cinematographer’s dream of land and sea, armchair action doesn’t come much better than this!
Treasure Island, Saturday, May 5, 7PM ET, 6PM CT on Syfy and available July 24 on DVD/Blu-ray. Buy it here.
