Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
I rented this "modern pirate story" after a friend told me tales of working at the studio during filming. (Basically: Ned Beatty was super-nice; Faye Dunaway stayed in her trailer the whole time.) It's entertaining enough, but overlong, given to too many plot twists that make no sense and exist only for their own sake. If you can last through the avalanche of transparent exposition in the first act, I give it a marginal recommendation for the adventure elements, and for another classy performance by Ms. Dunaway in a trashy role.
