Overview

Geena Davis stars in this adventure saga as the most swashbuckling female pirate to ever lay waste to the seven seas. Morgan Adams (Davis) is the daughter of a pirate who has followed in her father's footsteps. When he dies, he passes along his ship, a crew of bandits, and one third of a treasure map (which happens to be tattooed on his skull). Morgan is eager to search out the rest of the map and retrieve the riches, but the fragment she holds is in Latin. Morgan then buys a well-educated slave, William Shaw (Matthew Modine), who can read the ancient language and already has a taste for the criminal life. However, Morgan and William are not long into their search when they discover that someone else is following the same trail for the rest of the treasure map: Dawg Brown (Frank Langella), Morgan's uncle and as black-hearted a scurvy dog as ever boarded a ship. As Morgan and Dawg battle each other over the fragments of the map, a British journalist (Maury Chaykin) covers their feud for the penny press. William Shaw was originally to have been played by Michael Douglas, who dropped out in the early stages of this troubled production.

A bloodthirsty uncle trying to kill his neice for a scalp? Indians? NO! PIRATES! Move over, Sittin Bull, here comes Geena Davis, or shall I say MORGAN! FYI, I am writing the sequel! Also in this movie: Chris Masterson as the little cowardly Bowen. OUCH! Watch the cutlass, mate!

I really loved the movie, Geena or I should say Morgan was the person I would love to be, It made me wish that I was in the movie fighting along side of her. It was great would tell anyone to watch it. Going to buy the movie so I can watch it again.

Geena Davis was incredible as a swashbuckling pirate. The action was nonstop and kept me on the edge of my seat. Morgan had a devi-may-care attitude that can be greatly admired by today's liberated woman.

Could have been better. Some corny movies are awesome and you just love them for their corniness. This isn't one of them. All I can say is, "And they made this a movie, why?"
