Savage Islands is a better title than Nate+Hayes!

Indyfreak - wrote on 09/22/2015

This movie is almost completely forgotten but it's one of the better Indiana Jones rip-offs from the 1980s. This is thanks no less in part to its premise and setting. It's a pirate movie set in the South Pacific during the 19th century. Tommy Lee Jones plays real-life buccaneer Bully Hayes who has to help a missionary rescue his bride from a vicious slaver, hostile cannibals, and pesky German empire-builders. Jones treats the script like the pulpy Saturday matinee serial material that it is and has fun. As his costar and foil, Michael O'Keefe is a bit of a boob but that's what the script demands and he remains likable enough but not as good as Tommy Lee Jones. The tropical locations are beautiful and the action is entertaining in the spirit of classic swashbucklers and modern adventure …
