During the War of 1812, a U.S. Captain must sail through the enemy blockade to get a French loan in gold. When his secret mission gets out, many people want the gold, including his crew. Starring Mark Stevens, Angela Lansbury, and Patric Knowles
This film brings the maritime war of 1812 to life with great acting performances. It depicts wonderful sea battles, and Lansbury is brilliant in her role. But the script is slow with poor dialogue that bogs down the film – the script seems to be what the film struggles with. It also screams, “lack of production value.” However, with all its problems, it isn’t necessarily a bad film; it was enjoyable and, thankfully, not very long, making it still worth a watch.
