    ‘Blackbeard’ on Blu-ray will appeal to fans of good, old fashioned pirate movies who love the search for buried treasure, a bit of skulduggery and the occasional sword fight against the background of a love story.
    Hallmark Entertainment really ‘pushed the boat out’ (ow!) in this TV mini series by putting together a star cast including Richard Chamberlain, Stacy Keach and Rachel Ward in an exotic location. Unfortunately the whole effort is slightly let down by Angus MacFadyen’s rather weak portrayal of the titular character.
    The Blu-ray sports a good, if unremarkable 1080p High Definition transfer and a perfectly functional Dolby Digital 2 channel stereo soundtrack with an uncompressed PCM option.
    The Extras, such as they are, give a little piece of background to the production itself and will be of interest to film buffs as well as fans of the Stars.
