Time Out says

Pretty much of a swashbuckling potboiler aside from the switch of having Peters, spirited but not entirely convincing, as the bloodthirsty (but she has her reasons) pirate chief. Not one of Tourneur's better films, although he does give it some of the same colourful bounce as The Flame and the Arrow.

I think this film is action packed and very well done. I liked it much better tha Flame and the Arrow. Jean Peters does a great job as the fierce Captain Providence and she is a gorgeous sexy female, and surprisingly a good actress. Also good are Herbert Marshall and Thomas Gomes as Blackbeard. Don't miss this flick. It's main atraction is the lead character is a female pirate!

I think Jean Peters did a great job on this film. I can not think of another actress at the time in Hollywood that could handle a sword as well as she (not even Maureen O'Hara). I think she comes out a winner, despite the fact that she is gorgeous and Fox didn't allow her to play it as she wanted -"an animal that knows no law but the law of might," Fox wanted a fetching pirate. Peters wanted no make up and some dirt on her cheeckbones. I think this is a classic film and one of the most enjoyable pirate flicks I've seen.
