Director Lee Suk-Hoon sails away from his comedy, drama, family film fair to helm this historical action epic…comedy, drama, family film fair with a possible Caribbean influence titled The Pirates. Let that sink in. Reviews around the inter-webs have noted that the overall entertainment value may have been plundered from this vessel, so proceed with caution.
