Goofs

Gardiner's Island, traditional repository of Capt. Kidd's treasure, is not, as shown in this movie, in the Bahamas, but on the east end of Long Island, in the present state of New York. And Blackbeard's last battle and death didn't occur in the tropics, but off the coast of North Carolina. See more »

Tripe
24 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unbelievable. A comic book version of Blackbeard's story. Don't waste your money renting this insipid, historically-inaccurate tripe. The setting, which should have been North Carolina and Virginia, is some mythical Caribbean colony. The actors are wasted on a script filled with stock heroes and villains. Nothing is even faintly true to the facts, except for the historic character names. The whole thing reminded me me of a Classic's Illustrated version of a greater work. The only audience this will appeal to is the kiddies, since it's done on their level anyway. Production values are generally good, but some of the night scenes are murky. Unfortunately, good tech credits can't even begin to redeem this cynical joke. If you are looking for an adult viewing experience I'd advise you to look elsewhere.
