Storyline

Bianca, the beautiful daughter of Rhodes military governor, travels in the San Luca from the Venice Republic to her home in Rhodes, and without her knowledge, the ship also brings secret orders for her father to attack the Mediterranean ports dominated by the Sultan Selim. Dragut, the terrific Mediterranean pirate, attacks and conquers the Sun Luca. The sad knews reach the Governor of Rhodes when he was expelling Diego, an unscrupulous captain, who immediately offers his services to retake the ship, and free the girl. Without alternatives, the Governor accepts, and Diogo enlists as a pirate under the service of Dragut. In his devious mind, once he gets his hands on the plans, he will sell them for good price to Suliman, whom he knows to pay in gold, rather than a polite thank you, as the Governor would do...

An Unusual role reversal adds spark to this colorful adventure
11 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

A Spanish nobleman (Serato) runs afoul of the cruel and bloodthirsty Saracen pirate Drakut (Barker)after being provoked into swordplay. The Spaniard is allowed to become a prisoner rather then being put to death, because he is an artist. As a captive he is one among many, the others being a bevy of beautiful young women who are to be sold as slaves at the pirate's stronghold. How the longsuffering captive frees the girls, wins the love of the pirate's dangerous mistress, and faces him in a final duel to the death makes an exciting adventure film. The unusual casting of Barker as the vicious, brutal pirate along with Serato as the valiant, noble hero is a switch in roles that adds a filip to what otherwise would have been a standard entry in the pirate genre.
