4 out of 10 Good exciting action
Ciaran from Dublin, 23 May 2007
Trivia: One of the very few movies with no female speaking roles. Another being 'The Great Escape'. There you go. As a movie this is a very good, exciting seafaring yarn. The depiction of the enemy (the French) as a faceless foe over the waves is very effective while the action is excellently choreographed. One to recommend for all historical action buffs.

Brigitte from Dublin, 15 Jul 2011

4.5 out of 10 Excellent take on the novels
James from Limerick, 04 Jun 2008
Feels very authentic, another absorbing Crowe performance. Ending a letdown though, left wanting more or a sequel. Highlight: "The lesser of two weevils"

What's it about....
