CutThroat Island

Geena Davis starring as Pirate Captain Morgan of the Morning Star is utterly spectacular in this all round great Cutthroat Island treasurehunt romp. Tallships, cutlass, daggers and black powder guns, cannon fights at sea, horse and carriage chases. Erroll Flynn would give thumbs up to Geena. Mathew Modine plays the supporting lead as one rescues the other in betrayal and tryst, betrayal and tryst. The cover describes it aptly as an "action packed adventure….swashbuckling saga of ruthless pirates, buried treasure and bloodthirsty betrayal." The photography is amazing. I loved every minute of it. A sailor's movie totally but I suspect everyone would enjoy it just for the delight of Geena's Modine melting smile and her high flying stunts. Great movie! Great entertainment!
