Vad säger folk?

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Pirates

    Not among Polanski's most memorable films. The satirical look on swashbuckling genre lags behind this filmmaker's sharper and funnier treatment of vampiric tales. Here, it is Walter Matthau who is clearly the motor; his overwhelming yet tarnished and nearly anthropophagic persona sweeps the screen and renders everyone and everything else really a hard to notice element in the story. Moderately enjoyable and uneven.

  • Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Pirates

    An atypical and charming adventure. It's great to see an auteur like Polanski shaping his vision no matter what genre or tone he's in, but in this case he forgot to apply a little more carefree attitude. some parts are great but still most of the film lacks sparkle and rhythm. Walter Matthau is amazingly cool in his role of a greedy, filthy and wisecracking old pirate.

  • VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Pirates

    No es precisamente de lo mejor de polanski (la protagonista se ve riquisima a pesar de las faldotas) no obstante, cuenta con la suficiente dosis de crueldad del director como para provocarle pesadillas a cualquier mocoso. Por cierto, el pendejo que elaborò la ficha tecnica pone a Walter Murch como protagonista del film: Murch es el editor. Es Walter Mathieu el protagonista.

  • Bob's rating of the film Pirates

    The opening hints bizarre humor and canty characters but very soon sweeps into plotless mess. All of the events and characters are reduced to pure occurrence. It feels like nothing happens no matter how chaotic circumstances are. Costumes and set designs are exceptional and - along with Walter Matthau's performance - they strive for masterful genre film but end up with excruciating two hours long excuse for storyline

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Pirates

    Une oeuvre "grand public" du metteur en scène qui risque quelquefois de lasser ou de laisser sur sa faim quelques inconditionnels du réalisateur...

  • Dalibor's rating of the film Pirates

    It is a least inspired Polanski take on b-movies he occasionally loves to do. Unpolished satire depends mostly on ironic plot deviations and raw takes on cultural prejudices. As characters seem flat and pace terribly uneven, a surprising bonus is, tho, one of the most majestic ship models I've seen on screen.

  •'s rating of the film Pirates

    Vor Polanskis Pirates gab es lange Zeit keinen Piratenfilm und danach sollte es genauso lange keinen mehr geben. Pirates markiert den absoluten Nullpunkt des Genres (...) (Dazu haben wir eine Film List mit Abenteuerfilmen für euch zusammengestellt auf unserer Empfehlungsseite

  • Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Pirates

    Altra gradevole parodia firmata Polanski, questa volta dedicata al genere piratesco.Parte soporifero,sembra un pò appiattirsi,ma poi sale di tono sia dal punto di vista del ritmo che da quello della comicità,fino a culminare alla favolosa scena nella casa del governatore(SPULZELLA LA GIOVANE!).Leggero e ben fatto,con uno spassoso Mattheu ed una bellissima Charlotte Lewis,una delle mie prime cotte cinefile.3*
