Weak acting performances and what appears to be a low budget production. The storyline appears to be a study of a needed drift from pacifism to violence.

"I am the devil!"-Jacob "Blackbeard" Weber (James Mason)

I was looking for another SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON, of course it wasn't, but it wasn't that bad ether.

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.
