Did You Know?


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 Pirate Swashbuckler
8 December 2000 | by (sterling hts, michigan) – See all my reviews

It is a shame that "Morgan the Pirate" is not shown or recognized more by action fans. It is very hard to find this film on any tv station - including cable or video stores. Steve Reeves gives his very best acting job in this venerable pirate tale.....also, an oddity is that Steve has to pursue the lovely Dona Inez, the daughter of the governor of Panama, throughout the film.....she makes Reeves work very hard to make a conquest of her. In other Reeves tales the women begin swooning over him very early. Morgan the Pirate has great action scenes, with good closeups of some beautifully reconstructed pirate ships. The costumes are quite historical, with Reeves decked out in a slew of pirate regalia as the film progresses. The music sets off this swashbuckler to a great extent. Best music score around for this pirate tale. Reeves survives a mini mutiny among his own pirate group, spearheaded by a jealous cohort captain who Steve outduels in an excellent action sequence early in the film as Reeves establishes his authority as the overall leader of the pirates. Some lovely women to look at in this film, and Reeves does not appear overly muscular for the role.

Plenty of pirate fighting and a good romantic ending for Captain Morgan.
