I won't add anything to the material Dare Devil Kid has already stated
as I agree wholeheartedly with him. I will however look at this film
from the point of view of a kung fu fan. (and why is there no category
on IMDb for kung fu / martial arts? ) As an entry in the genre of
martial arts oriental film making faithful to the traditions of Wong
Fei-Hung and such classics as Project A, Pirates walks tall and proud
and has no apologies to make. The timing and mixture of love, honour,
tradition, comedy and drama are perfect throughout. These by the way
make up the elements in the complex and near impossible to explain
within the word limit here, concept of "face". As well, the sword work
and fighting skills are nearly as good as anything Jet Li or Jackie
Chan would be impressed with. Speaking of sword work, there is a lot of
it and never comes off as anything but intense or bloody dangerous to
the actors should they make a mistake. Based on the fight sequences and
rope tricks alone, I would watch more of anything starring these guys.
Having seen more hours of this kind of film from China over the years,
I'm surprised I hadn't ventured into the Korean historic martial arts
scene earlier. J pop may be both alien and compelling to me but this
genre is like walking into a room full of 80's Shaw Brothers films I'd
somehow missed. What a deliciously tasty feast Pirates is to someone
like me, it assumes you are familiar with all the significant bits of
the culture and story, so don't lumber the film with a lot of klunky
exposition as in some films that aspire to being seen at some point in
the west. While my Korean is non existent, the easy to read sub titles
( that's important too ) seem to allow the original script's concepts
and plot points to come through without the usual over simplification
and ham fisted translation into western ideas that haunt many other
such films. Most recently I saw a Korean anime that I'm sure was
brilliant in the original tongue but was so badly dubbed it went from
funny for the first 15 minutes to too painful for my brain to process.
I'm sure this may in fact be the principle reason I might have steered
clear of the genre till now.
Pirates deserves better distribution, a proper name in English and as
mentioned somewhere else, is an object lesson for anybody considering
making a film about pirates. There is more Errol Flynn 1940's fun
factor here than the confused drive-by muggings of the Pirates of the
Caribbean sequels churned out for the sole purpose of parting gullible
people from their money. I will go so far as to suggest that in the
event a DVD of this comes available in near the future, fans of martial
arts films add this to the must have list.
