Based on the novel by Jaws author Peter Benchley, this action-packed, high-seas thriller features a riveting performance from Michael Caine, who plays a British reporter investigating a series of mysterious ocean disappearances in the Caribbean. When his airplane crashes into the ocean, Caine and his son are stranded on an isolated island and are soon captured by a group of pirates who have wreaked havoc in these waters for centuries. Caine is kept alive to perform "husbandly duties" for the wife of a man he killed in the initial attack, while his boy is selected by the pirate leader, Nau (David Warner), to be his son - and continue the bloodline, but soon engage in an epic battle with the buccaneers to escape their island purgatory.
