Netflix: The Pirates, The Last Royal Treasure

Available on Netfixs on March 2, 2022.  This be a sequel to director Jeon-hoon Kim's 2014 film, The Pirates.  This South Korean action adventure has lots of action n' comedy.  

At its core, the story revolves around two factions who have united with the shared goal of finding royal treasure. There are the pirates, led by the steadfast, tactical Hae-rang (Han Hyo-joo), and the bandits, who are spearheaded by the brash, eccentric Moo-chi (Kang Ha-neul), who also happens to proclaims himself “Goryeo’s best swordsman.” Together, they’re a mildly dysfunctional group, a point emphasized by their constant in-house quarrels and first act hints of potential betrayal, but a team with undeniable skill. 

My biggest pet pea is their use of a Spanish Galleon Ship in the 1580's to represent Korean Pirates of the 1380's.  I guest even Korean audience are so used to watching Pirates of the Caribbean, they won't recognize it as a pirate ship unless it looks like the Black Pearl.

All in all, The Pirates: The Last Royal Treasure is a silly, breezy watch. It may lack in many areas, but for those looking to pass the time without having to do too much thinking, this movie comes recommended if ye be the type that want to watch anything pirate.
