Muppet Treasure Island :- Watch Muppet Treasure Island on Youtube on Fire, The Muppets’ twist on the classic tale. The Muppets are back into action in another movie based on a novel written by Robert Louis Stevenson. Kermit the Frog and his colleagues go on a warfare against ruthless pirates. They also share their problem-solving journey on sea to rescue a treasure. I keep thinking these “Muppet Movies” are going to be just for little kids but I am usually pleasantly surprised that I enjoy most of them, too. In this one, there were a lot of modern-day expressions and referrals to things that only adults would appreciate. Meanwhile, the special-effects with the puppets is the normal high-quality. Actually, this was my first look at a Muppet film, although I’ve reviewed several others, so I was downright amazed at what I saw. After I had seen others, and then viewed this one again, it wasn’t as appealing. It was okay, but I liked a few others better. As I found with subsequent episodes, Rizzo The Rat and The Great Gonzo had the best lines even though Kermit and Miss Piggy have always been the best-known of these puppet characters. I’ve never been a fan of Miss Piggy so I was glad to see her with a minor role here. Tim Curry played “Long John Silver” and he was entertaining, as was young Kevin Bishop as “Jim Hawkins.” The songs were okay: not outstanding, but not bad. There weren’t that many and they were brief enough not to interrupt the flow of the story. The movie is a little loud the first 20 minutes but settles down after that. I thoroughly enjoyed Kevin Bishop’s (Jim Hawkins) performance: since I usually find young/child actors to be very grating, that’s saying something. The Muppets were, as usual, all very funny.
