Swashbuckler
4 July 2000 | by (Columbia, South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

A silly swashbuckler film reminiscent of "Scaramouche," which was a much better film. Entertaining and predictable, if you have nothing better to do. It seems to have disappeared. Too bad, considering the effort involved. Also has a rare appearance by Richard Basehart.
