I really enjoy Eddie Izzards stand up comedy,his style and content is normally very unique and hilariously funny.
He has appeared in some big Hollywood films such as Oceans 11/12/13 but this is the first movie that Eddie has really had the chance to spread his wings.
He plays the iconic Long John Silver,they say that comedians have the ability to play evil characters well,Izzard fits into this group as he plays a wicked pirate with a charming sense of humour !
The supporting cast includes Donald Sutherland and Elijah Wood.
This TV movie is split into two parts and is on for a few hours,the style of the film feels authentic to this period,and the characters offer a refreshing mix of darkness and old British charm.
