Hard to imagine Geena Davis as the pirate, but shiver-me-timbers and make room on the gang-plank for Davis' character, Morgan Adams.
Though not completely convincing, she inherits a pirate ship and crew, and goes off in search of treasure.
Her worst enemy is her uncle or Mad Dog, played by Frank Langella. His goal is to kill her.
Convicted thief, Matthew Modine becomes Morgan's slave and the two become a romantic duo.
Cutthroat Island has lots of action since there is a price on Morgan's head and SHE is being pursued by the king's brigadiers. ((CUTTHROAT ISLAND/MGM: SEND MORGAN DOWN. I'LL SEND THE TREASURE UP AND WE'LL BOTH HAVE WHAT WE WANT. ALRIGHT WILLIAM. WE HAVE A DEAL. HERE SHE COMES.))
This isn't a BAD movie, there are some good special effects and lots of athletics. But I have to give it a "C+".
The script is completely predictable and some of the dialogue is absolutely laughable. It requires more suspension of disbelief than one should be expected to suspend.))
