Sensational! Geena Davis met her calling in this film!
This film has everything a pirate film should have & plenty of it! This movie is absolutely the greatest pirate movie ever filmed. Those who think otherwise must be dilly. Not only does it have a great plot that is not only both believable but the outlying scenes that take place amid the surrounding area of the main characters is fabulous. As for those have a rather pathetic attitude regarding a beautiful woman in such a role should take a peek or two at history where they will find no less than 5 fierce females pirate Captains who were well known for their skills is sword fighting, but with pistols as well. I have always been amazed by the lack of fighting &/or sea battles in so-called pirate films. In the realm of pirate movies, this film has the best overall sea battle, followed by Captain Blood, & next Pirates Of The Caribbean (The Black Pearl,) & lastly The King's Pirate. It's a shame that it wasn't promoted better. It was already out on VHS tape before I ever knew it existed.
