Storyline

In late 18th century, during the Napoleonic Wars, Great Britain and the French Republic are fighting for the control of the Mediterranean Sea. Both sides employ former pirates, corsairs and privateers who, after receiving official pardons and amnesties, are fighting alongside regular navies. On the French side, former pirate Peyrol is tasked with transporting a captured treasure chest in British gold coins from the Caribbean to the French port of Toulon. The gold is sorely needed by the French Navy in its struggle against the mighty British Navy that is blockading most French ports and thus chocking the young French Republic. Peyrol and his crew of former privateers are entrusted with the gold and with a captured British ship for the transport to Toulon. Peyrol is also given a small package of secret documents and dispatches bound in oilskin to be delivered personally to the French Admiral in charge of the port of Toulon. Skilfully evading the British warships blockading Toulon, ... Written by nufs68

Forget it
18 July 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Anthony Quinn is ready and able, but he has nothing to do in THE ROVER, an alternately boring and confusing adaptation of the novel. You won't care what happens to him or anyone else in the movie. Movie has a beautiful score by Ennio Morricone, but it seems to have been made for a totally different movie, with the music frequently inappropriate for the scenes it plays in
