In this unhistorical account, Capt. William Kidd is already a clever, ruthless pirate when, in 1699, he tricks the king into commissioning him as escort for a treasure ship from India. He enlists a crew of pardoned cutthroats…and Orange Povey, whom Kidd once abandoned on a reef and hoped never to see again. Of course, Kidd’s intentions are treacherous. But there’s more to gunner Adam Mercy than meets the eye.

I choose this movie because I have recently been interested in the swashbuckler genre due to an assignment for a class that required me to research the swashbuckler. And this was one of the few decent looking swashbuckler film on the IMDb list.
