Watch Captain Blood - Alternative Versions.
'Captain Blood' is not easily understood by a lot of viewers. Although
far from a "love or hate" film, it is frequently characterized as
"boring" and "unconvincing" by people who do not understand its subject
matter---buccaneers of the Caribbean.
For a lot of people,"pirate" translates as "gruff bearded man with a
wooden leg, a parrot on his shoulder, and a vocabulary consisting
mostly of four words--"shiver me timbers" and "Aaaarrrrrrrgh!"
In other words their definition of pirate derives from fictional pirate
Long John Silver. Captain Blood is a more romanticized figure, and
tends to leave fans of buffoonish pirates flat. Peter Blood, the
protagonist, is much more influenced by the dashing exploits of Captain
Henry Morgan---with a physician's mantle thrown in, formulaically
speaking, to give him added genteel qualities.
'Blood' is, for the most part, however, the most realistic of pirate
films made to date. Substantially more so than, say, 'Pirates of the
Caribbean'--which dazzles with special effects, but displays little
understanding of the historical period.
The Jerry Bruckheimer film appears visually influenced by Barbara
Cartland novels, and, like most pirate films, depicts Port Royal
unrealistically. I cannot vouch for exactly what Port Royal looked like
a few centuries ago--considering that it was destroyed once by an
earthquake in 1692, and burned a decade later---but it's doubtful that
it resembled a quaint cliff side tourist retreat in the Grenadines. In
Captain Blood, Port Royal is seen as flat and sandy, with colonial
Spanish buildings. This is more authentic; the real-life city was a
captured Spanish colony built on a sandpit.
Similarly, in most respects Captain Blood is carefully constructed, and
does not resort to the hackneyed and often silly stunts seen in most
pirate films.....such as exploding buildings with gunpowder (for no
particular reason), searching for buried treasure, Twentieth
Century-style fistfights (and karate-kicks), female pirates in every
ship's crew, anorexic women in ruffled skirts who kick ass, etc.
In terms of characterization, Captain Blood is a tour-de-force,
depicting the practice of white slavery (quite common in the colonial
era) and the escape of Blood's slave band to become a crew of
buccaneers. He is pursued by his former slave owner, an insolent,
hateful man named Bishop, as a matter of personal grudge. As opposed to
the usual cops-and-robbers chase scenes with British soldiers we see in
most pirate shows. (In real-life Caribbean colonies, privateers and
pirates were often ignored by the authorities..if not,in fact,quietly
encouraged behind the scenes.)
The ships in Captain Blood also move like real ships (slowly, and by
wind power only), and the final battle sequence between Blood's galleon
and a French Frigate is extraordinarily vivid, especially considering
the special effects used when the original film was made (1935).
As with many pictures from the 1930s, the film is chock-filled with
corny characters who provide "color", but in so doing, still leave a
more lasting impression than modern-day characters who do nothing but
grunt, sweat, and bleed.
This is a stunning and very likable action film--and head and shoulders
above all other Hollywood pirate movies.
Perhaps the next Johnny Depp film will get it right, and surpass
Captain Blood..but I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.
