Movie Info

In the three-hour period television miniseries Blackbeard, Angus MacFadyen (Braveheart, Jason and the Argonauts) assumes the title role of the dreaded marauder who spent 1716-1718 terrorizing the Caribbean Sea. Born Sir William Teach, the mariner rechristens himself Blackbeard, and subsequently builds a legend around himself as the most merciless and loathsome pirate in world history by plundering as many ships and murdering as many seafarers as he can lay his dirty mitts on. Directed by Kevin Connor (Motel Hell, The Land That Time Forgot), Blackbeard co-stars big screen vets Rachel Ward, Stacy Keach, and Richard Chamberlain.

[T]his overlong and underdone three-hour movie has its charms, but it suffers from a minuscule budget and, more dramatically, from its origins on the squeaky-clean Hallmark Channel...

The production design is rather impressive, the thing (despite being too long) moves fairly quickly, and on the whole Blackbeard feels like a perfectly entertaining Saturday afternoon matinee.

Audience Reviews for Blackbeard

I thought this was pretty good for a Hallmark production, and the length was awesome. The pirates could have been a bit more piratey, but it was still fun.

This claims to be the true story of Edward Teach , but it doesn't even come close . It's just another pirate movie with the same time worn cliches .

very accurate depiction and life of Black Beard, Edward Teach. The acting was very well done. Only problems were movie concentrated a lot on the people in the movie not always just Blackbeard.
