Pirates make a western and create bilge
19 November 2012 | by SocrateaseSee all my reviews

This film is a great example of what happens when Hollywood hacks decide to take a classic character from literature and prostitute it for all it's worth.

So, cobble together a script full of "arrrghs" and "belays", hire a few props and stuntmen from a western and, by heck, while you're at it write in a hoedown scene to boot.

Invent a love interest for Long John Silver who has all the characteristics of a 19th century American mom.

Transport it to what looks to be the Australian bush and pretend that it's a tropical island.

The only thing going for this bucket of bilge is Robert Newton.
