What was powering "Swallow" at 2.06? I can't believe a lug-sailed dinghy could travel that fast without a motor!

Yes, I was wondering about that- I was looking for the tow rope. And there's a modern Cessna float plane in grey drab at one point.
But these are nerd points... And quite right too...
I was also wondering about John breaking a houseboat window with a stone. Not very John-like.
Best to forget the AR connection and take it as a children's film. It might well be okay.
I liked Nancy's accent, and Mrs Walker might as well be Scottish as Australian (I'm presuming that they've left out the bit where she talks about being in the outback as a girl), but I'm not sure about the Amazons' "savage" wigs. Maybe red caps not thought startling enough...
I think it'll be worth a watch, but preferably on DVD, for me.
