Thrilling pirate flick
12 March 2007 | by coradeniceSee all my reviews

The first time I watched the mini series I was 17 and absolutely fascinated by how exotic and bright it looked and by the whole twist of fate story. I am crazy about period dramas and wild stories about pirates, and the actors were incredibly beautiful and quite talented. I watched each episode over and over whenever the series was on television, and in time I've come to be less subjective and face its flaws. Many scenes were poorly shot, the dialog and situations were often naive and not too credible, the score, although brilliant, was most of the time redundant and not masterly distributed throughout the movie. However, this is a flick that once captivated the dreamy teen-ager in me, and for this reason it's still very close to my heart, despite its defects. All in all, it's a very enjoyable movie if you don't analyze its technique too much. I'm only sorry because it had great potential to reach perfection in better directorial hands and vision, and certainly with a bigger budget.
