One of Disney's better live action movies
3 September 2000 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

The "Mooncussers" are land pirates who lure ships to their doom by setting up false signal lights, causing the ships to crash into a reef, where they can be quickly and profitably plundered. They cuss the moon because they can only work on dark, preferably stormy nights.

One the major shipping magnates sends his son to investigate a small town where they have lost several ships and cargos. He teams up with a boy from the local inn and the first mate of the most recent ship to fall victim to the mooncussers. Of course, the first mate is a former pirate himself, who recognized the technique and quickly took over as the leader of the local gang of mooncussers.

Nice Disney movie with an exciting horse race and a rousing brawl near the end.
