Storyline

Once upon a time, there is a pirate named Blackbeard. the most dastardly pirate in the 7 seas. One day he goes to the tavern from a slug of the famous old spice and drinks so much he gets a wee bit drunk. He makes a bet with a pirate named Captain Kidd in which he has to defeat the British Navy and get a proposition on soap. Forward into this adventure we learn he ate gunpowder, killed some guys and had a beard which was black- hence how he got his name. In the end, Blackbeard gets hung which results in his death. It is a very tragic end as he doesn't get to say goodbye to his dog "Scruffy." I cried at this scene and drunk a whole cask of rum to drown out my sorrow. I would recommend this film because its good and is pirate filled fun. Written by Dr doolittle

Exciting if a little clunky
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the show started I have to say that it wasn't at all what I expected it to be. I thought there would be documentary and explanation, however it was produced in story form. After I got over the initial shock of changed expectation, the film was quite good. I felt the narrative was a little clunky and jilted, however, the action was exciting and the acting was superb. The Art direction for the film was well researched and the special effects were very believable. It was refreshing to see the beauty and majesty of the ships at sail balanced with the hardship and disease. After the romanticism of Pirates of the Caribean, the reality of this film was nice. I would have liked to have more back story of the men and the reasons for their piracy than was given, but over all I will say that I enjoyed this program.
