As the ship gets underway the first time, the order is given to "hoist the main sail". Fore-and-aft sails are hoisted, but the ship's main sail is square-rigged. Square sails on ships of that time were unfurled, not hoisted. See more »

This is a down-to-earth pirate movie unlike Pirates of Caribbean.
Well,I only have a vague memory of the novel which I read when I was around 14-15. Therefore, while watching this I really couldn't compare the story and the characters with the original, which I guess was a blessing. I enjoyed this a lot because of several reasons. Firstly,it was quite realistic (esp.without supernatural elements as in POC.)Characters were depicted nicely and felt quite real and believable.Action scenes were decent without unnecessary flamboyance. Locations were wonderful and well matched with the images I had in my mind about the Treasure island since my childhood. If you liked "Master and commander", this is definitely for you. If you are still a fan of POC franchise, you may not like this.
