Gumby Badger’s review published on Letterboxd:
Crazy violent for a Disney film; multiple people are shot in the face and the boy is stabbed! It I had seen this as a boy (which I am kind of surprised I didn't), I would have loved it. As an adult it is fine, but when it raises to near greatness it is because of Robert Newton's terrific performance as Long John Silver. Some of the art direction (particularly in the towns) is strong too.
