The town of New Providence is in the Bahamas Islands. See more »


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 »


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.

User Reviews

Good period piece but a little slow paced.
20 June 2006 | by (Little Rock, Arkansas, USA) – See all my reviews

The movie is set in the early part of the 18th century. However, when they site a French ship early in the story, it is flying the blue, white, and red flag of modern France which did not come into existence until the French Revolution some 75 years later.

It would also help if there was more character development. For example, other than duty, it is not clear what is motivating the hero to undertake the mission which serves as the basis upon which the story is built.

The settings, which I understand were built in Thailand, are also well constructed and believable as being in the Bahama Islands almost 300 years ago and provide good backgrounds for the scenes.
