Just Watched: The Pirates

The_Pirates-p1

I haven’t been blogging on movies for awhile… I have been very lazy and decided to blog movies if time permits. Today is your lucky day coz here I finally decided to blog The Pirates. I’ve been meaning to watch this ever since I found out that Kim Nam Gil nabbed the main lead role. He is my mustache oppa *giggles*. And the best part is his co star from Shark, Son Ye Jin, is part of the movie too. Nice! Coincidence? *shrugs* I don’t know. Are they comfortable working together like Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum? Maybe.

So about the plot for The Pirates. Hmmmm… Where do I begin? *rubs chin* It is the most ridiculous thing ever. *facepalm* It is just a bunch of bandits and pirates trying to catch a whale who swallowed the royal seal. But the process of catching this whale is funny and all the mishaps scenes that Sa Jung the bandit and Yeo Wel the pirates went through to get the seal back for the Emperor were hilarious. The first 30 minutes into the movie was a little painful. I was questioning myself whether I should stop or move forward. The scenes were so serious and I was yawning several times. But once the focus move to the bandits, you will see the mood in the movie shifted a bit and you will find yourself holding your tummy from laughing too hard.

This movie is flooded with famous faces and they all received equally time on the screen as the OTPs! Now that speaks a volume, unlike other movies which just adding known faces just to pull audience. Not The Pirates and which is why I love this movie a lot. The OTPs nailed the role really well. The stunts were great and let me tell you about Son Ye Jin. I thought she is a girly girl, but in this movie as Yeo Wel, she showed us that she can do so much more than a pretty face. And oppa Nam Gil, well… He is just awesome and funny. I get to see him smiles a lot *giggles*. Listen peeps, I highly recommend The Pirates! Great and entertaining movie!

  1. Son Ye Jin is ❤ Sulli too ❤ These piratesses held my heart as a hostage and i liked it 😀
    Apart from that, here's again the oh-some comic-like writing vibe XD *three thumbs up – wanted to exaggerate*
    I enjoyed this movie, it's one of these films you don't have to think, you freeze your brain and enjoy the fight choreography while relaxing. Simplistic plot, humorous moments, fighting scenes and spot-on acting done the South Korean way.

    • Exactly! I love Ye Jin in here! She kickass big time! The fights were wonderful but I mainly focused on Nam Gil’s facial expression. I heard he was injured during the movie but he appeared to be having a helluva good time in the set. I’d def watch this movie again.
