Boy has his arm or leg amputated


What I vaguely remember about the scene and film:

- Boy has to have his arm or leg amputated, he cries a lot.
- He has something put in his mouth to ease the pain; a piece of cloth or wood.
- Almost certain they are on a ship while this happens.
- Setting is likely around 1700-1800s, I keep thinking about Napoleon.
- The style of the film might be very similar to Pirates of the Caribbean.
- Relatively modern film; likely made between 2000 and 2010.

Any help is appreciated.

Yeah, I don't think I saw the whole film either, just bits and pieces of it several years ago. It's so strange when you have this moment where a scene from a film pops into your head, and you get completely set on finding out which scene and film it is. But yeah, I'll see the film now. Thanks again.

Sit Ubu Sit.... Good Dog
If you are working your way through the books than you should check out Pirates Latitude by Michael Crichton , it's close to it except it's from the bad guys point of view, and the movie is coming soon.
