After a shipwreck, Gabrielle finds herself aboard the cursed vessel of the lost mariner Cecrops. Soon, she and Xena are confronted by pirates and the nasty god Poseidon.
Xena does an awesome leap onto the ship of the “Lost Mariner” in order to save Gabrielle. I can’t believe I actually held my breath whilst she was flying through the air, (talk about suspended disbelief).
I like Tony Todd and think we should see more of him as Cecrops or any other interesting character TPTB can come up with. There was subtext between Cecrops and his first mate. You know there was.
Disclaimer: Cecrops’ “Joie de Vivre” was not harmed during the production of this motion picture.
Subtext rating: 3/5
