25 August 1999 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

What do you say about a movie that was so horrible that you wanted basically the whole cast to die? I'm not a violent person, but this move was....garbage! The plot was lacking, the actor (and I use that term loosely) were horrible. My advice for everyone who has even remotely thought of watching this, don't! If your looking for a good pirate movie go with my personal favorite, The Goonies, or Hook.
