Critic Reviews for The Crimson Pirate
Light-hearted pirate spoof, with brilliant color and unusual science fiction elements.
Schlocky but fun.
...it works both as a movie parody and as a rollicking good adventure at the same time.
Terrific self-spoofing swashbuckler. Hard to beat
Audience Reviews for The Crimson Pirate
The Crimson Pirate is a fine swashbuckler, with plenty of charm, action and lighthearted humour. Lancaster, a circus acrobat before turning to movies in the '40s, gives what may be his most physical performance as sword-for-hire Captain Vallo, a.k.a. the Crimson Pirate. Knowing that Lancaster was doing his own stunts elevated his charismatic performance, as most of them were spectacular and daring. Overall, well worth looking out for.
Big, splashy entertainment but it goes on too long.
Classic swashbuckler full of fine action and slapstick humour. Pirates Of The Carribean pillaged many ideas from here, most blatantly, the walking under the sea in an upturned boat bit.
