Movie Reviews

Misleading description!
T. Alexander | 10/06/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I was a bit let down after seeing this video. The description is NOT accurate. Henry Morgan is not once even mentioned in the video, and there is no footage of sunken ships at all! Interviewed historians do give some interesting insights, but the reenactments are rather pitiful. Blackbeard looks as though he bought his beard from the cheapest costume shop available. If he looked like that in real life, I doubt anyone would have taken him seriously!"
Should have been called "Great Pirates of the Golden Age".

"I feel mislead, from the title I was thinking that this was going to be a "Modern Marvels"-style program about pirate ships. Instead there's maybe 15 minutes about pirate ships, pirate life and how they modified merchant ships into armed vessels. The rest of the 47 minute running time is dedicated to mini-histories of Sir Francis Drake, William "Captain" Kidd, Bartholomew Roberts (Black Bart) and Edward Teach (Blackbeard) all told with weak reenactments of "pirates" snarling and pulling ropes.

Couldn't they have at least found a guy with a real beard to play Blackbeard?! LOL."
