Our Flag Means Death follows the life of a pampered aristocrat who leaves his family and riches for a life out on the high seas. Stede has no idea what he’s doing as pirate captain, and his crew knows it. In addition to a potential mutiny, he also has to face the most famous pirate of all – the possibly insane Blackbeard.
Kate Beckinsale returns to her butt-kicking roots in this gritty action thriller. Beckinsale stars as Lindy, a bouncer with a slightly murderous anger management problem.
