Cutthroat Island


(out of 5)

Ignore all the critics who tore this adventure yarn to shreds; even though as a tribute to the good old days of Errol Flynn swashbucklers it doesn’t quite make the mark (it’s not slick or smart enough), it’s solid entertainment.   is a thrill as Morgan Adams, the captain of a pirate ship looking for the lost treasure printed on a map made from her uncle’s scalp (!). The thorn in her side is that she and her goofy companion (an ineffective ) have to find it before another evil uncle () does. Lots of action and gorgeous locales make this good (though not exceptional) movie watching.
