Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: t's not possible to believe that Ms. Davis is the highly respected captain of a pirate ship, and it's not even fun to try.
Fresh: If the sight of half-naked, tattooed sailors firing cannons at each other shivers your timbers, climb aboard. Even passable pirate movies don't sail by every day.
Rotten: What seemed like a dubious proposition on paper plays even more dubiously onscreen, as "Cutthroat Island" strenuously but vainly attempts to revive the thrills of old-fashioned pirate pictures.
Rotten: It takes a two-hour act of will to keep facing the screen during this moribund movie.
I never thought that iTunes would obtain this movie. Whether or not you want the movie is up to you.
Best of the pirate movies.
Well, you either like pirate movies or you don't. I've seen more than a few in my time, and I think this is the best-far superior to Disney's overblown Pirates of the Caribbean series. Everything about this movie is superb. Incredible production, superb score, great acting and great characters. Geena Davis is gorgeous and fun to watch, and Frank Langella is one of the best villains I've seen in a long time. I can't recommend this highly enough.
I have always been perplexed why this movie was so poorly received and reviewed. It is 10 times better than any Pirates of the Caribbean. Watch it - you’ll love it!
