Critic Reviews for Scalawag

All Critics (2)

Not only is Captain Peg a delight to watch, but his ersatz severed leg is an absolute miracle of cinema magic that must have rivaled the Inquisition as a torture device for the actor's real limb.

It is a general lackluster look, a slowness of development, an attempt at a more complicated plot that causes the story to flounder.
