[after seeing Christian improvising a raft to escape the ship at night]
That isn't a raft, it's a coffin. There's a five-knot current running between us and that island.
I'll take my chance.

i personnally rate this to be a vastly undervalued remake which has been unfairly dismissed by the critics and public alike. beautifully filmed, superbly acted and finely scripted by the late, great screenwriter robert bolt as well as boasting a superb soundtrack by vangelis. true, mel's accent is pretty naff but that's about the only minor fault to be found in this lush portrayal of jealousy, derring do and high adventure on the high seas (forget 'master and commander').
