Robin Hood with Swords - Dull Terrestrial Swashbuckler
7 April 2008 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Captain Scarlett is a tedious, repetitive, series of linked adventure stories featuring Captain Scarlett and his merry band of fencers righting the wrongs of post-Napoleonic France. Shot in Mexico, Captain Scarlett has no connection to, nor even a relationship with, reality or history. It is simply Robin Hood crossed with the Three Musketeers, Zorro, and a little bit of romance. The romantic angle, though poorly developed, comes closest to carrying the film because of Leonora Amar's bizarre but somehow captivating portrayal of Princess Maria.

Princess Maria is rescued from an unwanted marriage by an egomaniacal swashbuckling do-gooder who calls himself Captain Scarlett, and who, apparently, has everybody but the local authorities wrapped around his finger. From thence proceeds an astonishing variety of impossible and somewhat idiotic adventures accompanied by ever-mounting tedium. The film could not have been more predictable.

Directing - adequate.

Acting - Generally as stiff as styrofoam

Cinematography - OK, but nothing special

Editing - pithy

Script - Almost as stiff as the acting

Recommendation - AVOID.
