When two cowboys are captured in the old west trying to rob a bank, they are exiled to the front lines of World War I to fight alongside the British. They get into a bet to see if they can fly a Gunbus, they do but then end up in another base under an officer who is determined to hunt down a German airship. Written by

In this film the officers rank insignia were on their shoulder epaulets as on WWII and modern British Army officers uniforms. In the first world war officers rank was shown on the sleeve cuffs. See more »
I bought this movie for a laugh and boy did I get one, well more than one to be honest. In the UK this movie is called Gunbus, which is a much better title than Sky Pirates, especially as there are no pirates in this film or anything even resembling a pirate.
Its badly acted and directed and the script is very dodgy (I think I saw a few swastika's in there and this film is set during WW1 predating the nazis by a long way!) It is however very easy to laugh at as it so utterly pathetic. Even the "flashy" titles cant save this stinker.
A movie starring cowboys and made by them by the looks of things!
