Did You Know?

Goofs

In the scene where the Governor of Panama pardons 5 of the 6 prisoners during the festival, watch how one of the prisoners gives no reaction upon hearing his name called until one of the other prisoners congratulates him. Apparently the actor had such a small part that he didn't even know his character's name. See more »

Great Movie
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Along with "The Thief of Bagdad, one of Reeves' best flicks. It has a great story, perfect casting, authentic locations, rousing action and pretty music score. Reeves' presence and the strong romantic theme add quite a bit of appeal to the genre. Check out the sword fight on Tortuga Island, a classic. The whole family will love this.

Having seen this flick at the Saturday matinée when I was an impressionable young lad, it's hard to imagine anyone duplicating this role in a more convincing way than Reeves, but someday perhaps Hollywood will revisit the story of Morgan the Pirate, it's certainly worthy of a remake, if they could find someone with half the presence of Reeves to play the role.
