In an early scene, Blackbeard and his crew threaten to attack a French vessel. The flag the vessel is flying is the current French flag, which wasn't adopted in France until 1790. Blackbeard died in 1718. If the French vessel were a royal vessel, it would have flown a plain white standard. If it were a French merchant the flag would be royal blue with a white cross centered and the French fleur-de-lis centered. See more »

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.
