A faithful adaptation of Arthur Ransome's beloved children's book, this delightful film follows the adventures of four children on holiday in the Lake District in 1929. The children sail their boat Swallow to an island where they set up camp, only to discover the island is already the territory of two local girls with their own boat, the Amazon. The Swallows and the Amazons go to war, under the watchful eye of the girls' uncle, an old sailor living on a houseboat with his parrot.

    The films starts with a group of children who have a boat called the Swallow, they travel to an island where they meet another group of children called the Amazons.

    The plot was really difficult to follow and it wasn't very exciting.

    I would not recommend this film and i would give this film 1*.

    I didn't like this film because the faces on the children were very creepy. The part I did like was when the pirates were shooting arrows at the children. Their mam was very nasty. I didn't like her hair.

    Swallows and Amazons: I would not watch this film again as it was boring for me because nothing was exciting for me. This film was not my favourite film. Apart from that I didn't get to see the end of it and it had to be skipped because of technical problems at the start of the movie. The good part was that it was adventurous. It was a bit slow to get into the storyline. Some parts of the film were boring but when it got to the exciting bits I liked it. This was not my type of film because it had no humour. As a result, I give it 3 stars.

    I liked this film as parts of it were funny. It was about 4 children who went on a boat to an island. They met some pirates and sang songs and fired arrows at each other. We did not get time to see the end of the film which was a shame.
