Goofs

Before the last battle, Blackbeard orders his "new" flag raised, and a shot is shown of the historical Blackbeard's standard: a demon stabbing a heart with a spear. However, this is the only shot of the flag in the film - during subsequent long-shots of the ship, the skull and crossed swords flag that was previously used is clearly seen flying. See more »

Quotes

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.

Edward Teach 1680-1718
3 August 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The recent popularity of Captain Jack Sparrow as essayed by Johnny Depp in several films gave someone at Hallmark Channel the idea of making a movie about the real deal on whom Jack Sparrow is based. That would be on Edward Teach known down in history and legend as Blackbeard. But sad to say that not only is Angus MacFayden competing against Depp on the big screen, but also against an actor gone from us since 1957, but one who made the role of Blackbeard truly his own.

Robert did a wonderful film about the demise of Blackbeard back in 1952 and no doubt Johnny Depp must have studied that portrayal intensely because he got so much of it in Jack Sparrow. It's not Angus MacFayden's fault, but next to Newton giving one of the great pork product performances in a role that called for it, MacFayden taking it down a notch was disappointing.

Young British naval lieutenant Mark Umbers is given orders straight from the Admiralty in London. Find out about this Blackbeard guy and take him however and trust no one in your mission because we don't know who is in with Blackbeard. This he does. Along the way he has to rescue Jessica Chastain, ward of British Island governor Richard Chamberlain who has plans for her that neither she or Umbers is in favor of.

This version of Blackbeard is all right, but once you've seen Robert Newton you can't settle for anything else.
