Audience Reviews for Hero's Island


There's some nice location scenery to look at and James Mason delivers a decent performance as do some of the supporting players but this moves at a crawl for the first hour and even when it picks up towards the end it still isn't that exciting. The main actress is stiff and uncharismatic a major defect since so much of the story revolves around her. If you're a fan of pirate movies there are many others that would satisfy better than this, Blackbeard the Pirate with Robert Newton and Linda Darnell chief among them.
