A swashbuckling adventure, Roman Polanski's Pirates turns out to be a seagoing tale with a bit of a difference. Captain Red (Walter Matthau) runs a hardy pirate ship with the able assistance of Frog, a dashing young French sailor (Cris Campion). One day Capt. Red is captured and taken aboard a Spanish galleon, but thanks to his inventiveness, he raises the crew to mutiny, takes over the ship, and kidnaps the daughter of the governor of Maracaibo (Charlotte Lewis). The question is, can he keep this pace up?
Starring:  Walter Matthau, Cris Campion, Charlotte Lewis, Damion Thomas
Viewer Quote:  "This is an excellent/dark pirate adventure/comedy!  Pirates is just a great fun romp through being a nasty, dirty, pirate. This is one of Walter Matthau's best roles. He literally becomes Captain Red. At no moment do you associate this man with any of his other roles. There are too many jokes and gags to list, but this is not a comedy in the traditional sense. It is an adventure first with humor thrown in. I recommend it strongly."
