Hi, this is Julianna Noone, reporting for the Albert Wisner Library. Looking for a mysterious, action packed adventure? Look no further than the film, "The 3 Investigators: The Secret of Skeleton Island". This film stars Chancellor Miller (The Queen of Screams) as Jupiter Jones, Nick Price (A Land Before Time) as Pete Crenshaw and Cameron Monaghan (Prom) as Bob Andrews. Based on a series of crime novels from 1960 - 1980, by Robert Arthur, this film was directed by Florian Baxmeyer (The Red Jacket). As I love crime novels and solving mysteries, I loved every second of this film because the adventure kept you hanging on every word. My favorite characters are Chris, because she is daring and willing to do anything to save her father, and Mrs. Wilber's dog, Oscar, because I have a dog named Oscar who also is part Pug. My favorite part of the movie is when the 3 boys are in the tomb, searching for the treasure that will help save Chris and clear her father's name. The action is so exciting, as the boys have a fight their way through the tomb to find the treasure without getting hurt or even killed trying to find it. This film is about 3 boys, who like to call themselves investigators and solve crimes. In this film, they are headed on vacation, but turn this into another investigation as they look into the mystery behind Skeleton Island. The film is set in South Africa, and on a small island off the coast. The cinematography was done very well in how they use the island to set the adventure into play. The music was done well, and it was eerie and suspenseful in all of the right spots. I give this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars, as while the story was ok and the mystery kept you on your toes, some of the film came off as a bit "cheesy" as times. I recommend this film for children 5 -13, as I think older kids may be a little bored by this story. Stop by the Albert Wisner Library for a great selection of movies like this one, or for many more selections available every day.
