Goofs

Durring the final assault on Hayes and crew his sidekick "Mr. Blake" is shot rather graphically suggesting that he has been killed, Yet we saw him alive and well during the opening part of the wraparound narrative story set after these events. See more »

Great Adventure Movie
23 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I finally watched this movie for the second time last time being when, I was 10 years old and it was very well done. It was funny to see Tommy lee Jones character as a privateer more than a ruthless Pirate, even himself he questioned the term Pirate with the man writing a somewhat half bio on his life. He seemed to be a opportunistic character who dabbled in everything from legal to mildly illegal activities as he states. I throughly enjoyed Capt. Ben Pease's character ruthless and funny a true pirate and slave trader. i would love to have seen a further adventure of Ben Pease's character and crew. The only thing, I did not like about the movie was how Tommy Lee Jones abandoned his crew amongst the Indian natives when the deal went sour, it did not seem like his character to run away leaving them to fight it out alone and die only himself to be rescued by the preacher and his wife later on from a noose. I do not see anything that this movie ripped off from Indiana Jones or any real comparisons except for the bridge scene which Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom ripped off from this movie. The title of the movie is very gay and weak, I guess Savage Island is a much better title for the movie. I am waiting for The Island (Pirate movie) starring Michael Caine and David Warner to come to DVD who knows what the hold up is???
