In New York City, journalist Blair Maynard convinces his editor to travel to Florida to investigate the mysterious disappearance of ships in the Bermuda Triangle area. Maynard is divorced, and his ex-wife sends their son Justin to stay with him while she is travelling with her boyfriend. Maynard brings Justin with him and promises to go to Walt Disney World with him. However, he tells Justin that they will travel to the Bermuda Triangle, but their plane crashes in an island. Maynard rents the boat of the local Dr. Brazil to fish barracuda with his son, but they are attacked by pirates and Maynard kills one of them in self-defense. They are captured and find that they are trapped in an island with pirates under the command of John David Nau. Maynard is forced to be the substitute for the husband of the widow Beth and Justin is brainwashed and converted into a pirate. Now Maynard tries to find a way off of the pirate island.Written by

The idea that an island of rouge pirates could have remained undetected during the 20th century is incredibly unrealistic. During the First and especially the Second World War, the Bahamas were extensively patrolled by both British and American forces out of fear that German U-boats would prey on the smaller shipping in the area or perhaps even use one of the islands as a staging base for attacks into the Gulf of Mexico. By the time of the 1970s, geological and cartographic surveys had mapped all of the Bahamas and nearly all of the islands had been visited by surveyors. See more »
Are you wise enough to feel privileged by what you see here? You and I are the only living men to see what you lies before you now.

The doc shud have at least provided the inbred pirates with flouride laden toothpaste.
I first saw this in the early 90s on a vhs.
Revisited the 115 mins version recently.
I am generous with a 7 cos of the cool n scary poster which had remained on my mind for decades.
Also it is a good action/adventure movie marred by its length n lack of tension.
The muscular arm and hand with a pirate tattoo protruding from the sea clenching a deadly pirate's knife and an island ahead is scary.
Michael Caine's character goes full Rambo mode aft discovering a deck-mounted M2 Machine Gun hidden underneath a tarp. The best part he doesn't show any mercy where even the character Manuel has to take shelter.
His character even gets raped by an island inhabitant and as viewers, we too get to see some boobs.
