Reception[edit]

Mitchell Hattaway of DVD Verdict wrote a negative review that was concluded with "Bottom line: Cross Bones blows".[1] Jon Condit of Dread Central said that the film seems to be a mix of the worst pirate films ever made, but stated that "one must admire the filmmaker's faith and exuberance in his project".[2] J. Read of Monsters At Play said that the film started out well enough, but turned into a clichéd film.[3]
