Goofs

Before the last battle, Blackbeard orders his "new" flag raised, and a shot is shown of the historical Blackbeard's standard: a demon stabbing a heart with a spear. However, this is the only shot of the flag in the film - during subsequent long-shots of the ship, the skull and crossed swords flag that was previously used is clearly seen flying. See more »

Quotes

Blackbeard: [to Lt. Maynard who's just been flogged] The sting will go away in a few days. The scabs will take a few weeks.

Pathetic at Best this is a waste of film, let alone time.
29 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I picked this film up based on the Cover, A Mini-Series for cheap. I got less than what I paid for. The Complete lack of Continuity, or any other production value for that matter, is Appalling. Had I been hired for this cast, I'd have left based on the poor writing alone.

I'll not confuse Larry for Barry Levinson again.

I feel sorry for Poor Stacy Keach having to have his name attached to this Crap. This Film is worse than most High School Plays, let alone your local Community Theater.

I hope Angus Macfadyen got paid well enough for His outstanding Performance. As BlackBeard he alone captures the Attention that his role demands, despite the sad performance of the Writer. HIs performance alone kept me from tearing the disc out and launching it through an open window.
