"An anti-pirate pirate movie. Hero's Island was bound not click with audiences because it does everything it can to give genre-loving ticket buyers a poke in the eye. You want cardboard characters who operate along safe, established lines? No can do. You want spectacle? Not here. You want larger-than-life heroics and a dashing hero? Look somewhere else. A completely different feel to it than 99 percent of the typical Hollywood period pieces from that time frame. I'm highly, highly recommending Hero's Island."

"From a directorial standpoint, Stevens handles the proceedings with solid craft and even attempts a few daring approaches to the material - one of which is a terrific, long single take where Manx and Mason each reveal their innermost turmoil to each other. There are also a couple of tremendous POV shots from behind Neville Brand (a really great villainous turn, by the way)"
