Accordion music is played in the background and a concertina is depicted in the pub scenes. The button accordion was not invented until 1822, with some prototypes appearing around 1810, while the concertina was invented in 1829. Edward Teach died in 1718. See more »

Quotes

Israel Hands: Hey! Show yourself!
Lt. Robert Maynard: Is there a problem gentlemen?
Snake Leavitt: You've been watchin' things you aint got no business watchin'!
Lt. Robert Maynard: Well, I can assure you there is only one thing I've been watching and that's a bottle of gin. Would you be so kind as to spare me a drink?
Israel Hands: He's empty. You'd best be coming with us then.

Living in Bristol where Blackbeard lived and drank in a pub that still stands today, I thought I would give this a try. I was left disappointed, at what potentially could of been very good. The acting is poor to say the least, and the story line was never something that had you gripped from the start. The story trickled along at a pace that never threatened to speed up, which left me Un-exited throughout.

Although I don't know too many of the historical facts about Blackbeard, I was always led to believe Blackbeard to be the most feared pirate in his day. I never got that impression during the film,which again left me disappointed. If you're going to make a film about Blackbeard, at least give him an edge, make us dislike him. Although I can't say i'm an expert on dental hygiene from the 1700's, I was amazed at how many pirates had white teeth, just something else that didn't make it feel like a true pirate film.
