Critic Reviews for Swallows and Amazons
As clunky as the movie can feel, there's a winning toughness to its unsentimental view of childhood and its nostalgia for a pre-digital age.
Where the film really takes wing is when the Swallows and Amazons are trying to steal each other's boats, making expeditions by moonlight or are planning just what they're going to eat after dropping their provisions in the lake.
It's a charmingly old-fashioned family adventure - one that you can imagine several generations of a family gathering to watch on a rainy grey Sunday afternoon.
It's a strange kettle of fish, this adaptation of Arthur Ransome's beloved Thirties children's book, but bizarrely enjoyable for its sense of freedom and derring-do.
Decent enough: but probably best savoured on the small screen after tea on a rainy Sunday.
