The fight scenes were choreographed by the same choreographer that helped on Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior (2003) and The Protector (2005). See more »


In an early scene, Blackbeard and his crew threaten to attack a French vessel. The flag the vessel is flying is the current French flag, which wasn't adopted in France until 1790. Blackbeard died in 1718. If the French vessel were a royal vessel, it would have flown a plain white standard. If it were a French merchant the flag would be royal blue with a white cross centered and the French fleur-de-lis centered. See more »

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.
