Storyline

Morgan Adams and her slave, William Shaw, are on a quest to recover the three portions of a treasure map. Unfortunately, the final portion is held by her murderous uncle, Dawg. Her crew is skeptical of her leadership abilities, so she must complete her quest before they mutiny against her. This is made yet more difficult by the efforts of the British crown to end her piratical raids. Written by Stern

SUPER-CHARGED PIRATE ACTION ADVENTURE.
2 September 1999 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

I was pleased to see all the good things other users have had to say about this super-charged pirate action adventure.From the moment we are introduced to the character of Morgan Adams and the roistering score booms out we are set for two hours of rollicking good entertainment and a movie that was inexplicably damned by critics all over the world.I think they disliked the admittedly huge cost of the project rather than the movie itself and maybe Renny Harlin did go over the top in this respect, but when what you are seeing on the screen is as exciting as this who cares.Frank Langella made an excellent villain and his comrades were as black hearted a bunch as ever sailed under the skull and crossbones.Matthew Modine was a bit weak as the second lead although he visibly tried hard."CUTTHROAT ISLAND" rightfully belongs to Geena Davis as she swashes her buckle with abandon throughout.One thing though,I fail to see how anyone could call Geena Davis a beautiful woman;indeed she is positively ugly here.For a truly beautiful female swordfighter check out Maureen O'Hara in 1952's "AT SWORD'S POINT" ("SONS OF THE MUSKETEERS" in the U.K.).Ignore nit-picking critics,sail to "CUTTHROAT ISLAND" and join Morgan Adams in her audacious adventures.
