Cutthroat Island (1996)

cutthroatBy Scott Goldfine

Geena Davis stars as the captain of a pirate ship in search of her father’s treasure in this ghastly swashbuckler tale. Matthew Modine also climbs aboard for the dismal ride as a wisecracking conman/jack-of-all-trades.

Produced and directed by Davis’ real-life husband, Renny Harlin (“Die Hard 2,” “Cliffhanger”), the film drowns in a sea of numbing action and flat quips. A total disaster that also takes down Frank Langella. Rated PG-13.
