Rivaling Pirates and Spanish gold are the ingredients for this story. Blackie the pirate is the one who first hears from this shipment of gold when he encounters "Don" Pedro. He thinks of a plan to find this ship and its gold. His counter player is the vice roy of the Spanish kolony. When they visit one of the pirate settlements, they find three other pirate captains over there. One of them sells goods and prisoners from his latest capture. Don Pedro recognizes the wife of the vice roy, and Blackie buys her. However, one of the pirate captains, Skull, knows also who she is, and tries to make a deal. Blackie refuses, and Skull makes a deal with the other two pirate captains to plot against Blackie. Written by
Anyone who expects a typically buddy movie with Spencer and hill will be totally disappointed, so am I. Maybe this film is from a neutral point of view an average film. But as it is advertised as a buddy movie I will judge it like that. Spencers part is ridiculous. His dumbness is awesome, Hill, on the other hand is some kind of superman pirate which can do everything and whose silliest plans will succeed. Summarized this film is a typically old-fashioned pirate movie spiced up with some kind of humour and some good action scenes.
Watch this movie if you are a hard core fan of old-fashioned pirate movies, but not as Spencer/Hill movie.
