Audience Reviews for Captain Kidd
Jun 06, 2018It's a pirate movie, so there's that, but the only real draw here is Charles Laughton, backstabbing and murdering with particular glee, aiming to become a peer of the realm by fair means (and there'd be no movie then) or foul. Why they cast Randolph Scott as a scion of England I cannot guess but he serves only adequately as the dutiful son of a murdered lord. Eh. Gilbert Roland adds some pirate menace in the background.
Mar 04, 2012Charles Laughton is NOT one of my favorite actors. I usually find him dull and boring. The only film he's in that I actually enjoyed was Island of Lost Souls, but that had more to do with the film's atmosphere and that Laughton was well-cast in the role. While he gave a good performance, it had more to do with Laughton as a person that influenced that performance, which is what made it good. I can't say I'm incredibly impressed with Randolph Scott either. I suppose if put in the right role, like Laughton, he'd pull something off good. This all leads me into Captain Kidd, which is about as boring as watching paint dry. The performances are terrible, the story is boring and meanders all over the place and there's really no high seas adventure, which is implied on the film's poster. It's just a boring mess, and I wanted it to end long before it even reached its halfway point. In other words, this is one of the most skippable movies you'll never see.Tim S Super Reviewer
Mar 07, 2011Would never watch this again.
Feb 23, 2011With that cast it should have been better. Just sort of chugs along without the sense of derring do required for this kind of adventure. Scott looks ridiculous dressed up as a pirate, Laughton does his best but this is just blah.jay n Super Reviewer
