Based on the novel Haakon Haakonsen, Shipwrecked is a family film about a cabin boy (Stian Smestad) whose ship is hit by a hurricane just before it is about to be ambushed by pirates. The boy and his stowaway friend wash up on a South Seas island which happens to be where the pirates' treasure is buried. Soon, the pirates--led by Lieutenant Merrick (Gabriel Byrne)--arrive at the island with hopes of reclaiming their treasure, and the boy decides to construct a series of elaborate booby traps to prevent them from reaching the booty. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    Great family adventure: kids vs. pirates


    This is a wonderful family movie. It involves family, friendships, and growing up to be responsible and inventive. My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie; it was exciting, funny and suspenseful. The scenery is beautiful. The story is of a boy who leaves as a Captains 'boy' to earn enough money to save the family homestead after his father is injured and can no longer work. He becomes shipwrecked with two other young people, and they have to deal with a pirate who comes to the island to reclaim his treasure. The end has a twist that all will enjoy.

    Great Family Film


    Shipwrecked is a great family film that starts with a young boy heading off to a life on the sea to save the family farm. Along the way he encounters loyal mates, a love for the sea, a stowaway orphan girl, pirates, a shipwreck and a climactic ending involving stolen pirate booty and pirates on the rampage. This is good clean famliy fun that has plenty of plot developments that can lead to great family discussions later.
