A tough-as-barnacles lady pirate enlists the aid of a thieving slave to defeat her dastardly uncle and retrieve a buried treasure in this explosion-filled high-seas adventure. From Renny Harlin, the director of "Cliffhanger" and "Die Hard 2," and starring Geena Davis (THE FLY) and Matthew Modine (MARRIED TO THE MOB). Movie looks great in Bluray. The audio is perfect!
Love the storyline, love the fight scenes..ok so it's not Xena..but Geena Davis proves her worth as a fighter and a Damsel not in distress..Matthew Modine is cute funny and brave in this movie..funny though he looks nothing in the movie like he does on the cover..Film begins with an attack on a pirate ship a young Woman struggles to save a pirate who turns out to be her Dad, before he dies he gives her a final order swearing to carry out her Fathers last request she fights her way to freedom then into the arms of a least likely suitor played by Modine..probably not a good film for anyone under the age of 13..I could even go as high as 17 on this one because of the violence..A true not to be missed movie!! 5 out of 5 stars!!
I had the VHS version of this movie and have always enjoyed it. After buying the Blu-Ray, I see an entire new movie in the quality and details. The costumes are fantastic and Blu-Ray shows every tiny detail. The details of the ships are clear and very much enhances the movie's reality (in a make-believe movie). Geena Davis is superb as the "Errol Flynn" character and does a lot of her own stunts (as you can easily see in Blu-Ray). It was shocking to see how gritty and strong she could be. There is a lot of explosions and fierce sword play for the guys and enough plot and drama for the gals. It is a fun romp and I will continue to watch it when I need a break from reality. It has much more value than many modern movies and was probably overlooked when released because of the female lead.
Female heroes, also called Sheroes, are on the up and up. Geena Davis takes the stage as a female pirate in a male pirate's world. If you love pirates, adventure, or strong female leads this movie is for you. I have a large family, nine siblings, and we all have a copy of this movie. One is not enough, as we all left Mom's, we had to buy our own copy of this amazing movie. Move over Johnny Depp, Geena was here first. I still love you too Jack. :)
Our family has always loved this movie! We are big fans of Geena Davis and of course, who doesn't love a pirate movie??? Lots of action and a little romance and comedy, plus the swashbuckling- oh my! Great combiination!
