The King's Captain

Good swashbuckler set in France by the time King Louis XIII was just a teenager. It seems that nobody wants to see him sitting on the throne, including his lovely mother. But there is a loyal nobleman who will fight bravely to put things in order. Legendary French actor Jean Marais is a bit too old to play the hero but he tries hard and really does a good job. As the comic relief, comedian Bourvil plays the street artist who helps Marais in his mission. Fencing and action sequences don't look as great as in Errol Flynn's classics but the old castles are real and "Le Capitan" provides a good fun for its audience. By the way, English title "Captain Blood" makes no sense; this captain has no relation neither to 1935 Hollywood classic nor to Rafael Sabatini's novel (this one is based on Michel Zevaco's histories).

Not bad old school fun

This movie is based on Michel Zevaco's histories . Legendary French actor Jean Marais plays the main hero – a noble knight who will help young Louis XIII become king. "Le captain" is set during the king's youth. Marais plays the same role he played in many similar movies of that era . Famous French comedian Bourvil plays the role of sidekick – a street artists who is not very smart . Bourvil is a good comic relief. Both Jean Marais and Bourvil gave a really good performances. It's interesting that old castles in this movie are real. This movie is maybe not as good as "Robin Hood" with Errol Flynn , but it's definitively entertaining and has a certain charm. Give it a shoot and don't expect historical accuracy. I give it 5/10.
