The best reason to watch this movie is the performance of Walter Matthau who plays Captain Red in a brilliant way.

An average movie

I’m pretty sure I already saw this movie but it was at least 20 years ago so I was really eager to check it out again. Even though it had a rather lame reputation, I always thought  it was actually a decent pirate movie, at least, as far as I could remember but after re-watching the damned thing, I have to agree, it wasn’t really good after all.

I mean, it was visually pretty neat with some nice costumes and some great sets (especially the Neptune looked pretty awesome. It was a full scale ship that did cost almost $10 million). Walter Matthau was also a great choice to play the lead part, even if his English accent was not convincing and even rather cringe-inducing.
