Pirates is the 18th-century story of Carmen Luvana and her new husband Kris Slater. On their wedding night, they make their way across the sea to his new job at a trade post in the Caribbean. Unbeknownst to either of the newlyweds, Kris possesses an inherited power for which a renegade pirate (Tommy Gunn) and his mate (Janine) lust. Tommy and his pirate crew board the ship carrying the young couple, kidnap Kris, and set Carmen afloat assuming that she'll drown. Fortunately, pirate hunters Evan Stone and his first-mate Jesse Jane rescue Carmen from the ravages of the sea. Evan is a bumbling and rather goofy captain who, after first hearing Carmen's story, is too spineless to attempt a rescue. However, first mate Jesse Jane has the balls of the outfit and convinces Evan that he'll earn glory and praise--not to mention notoriety as a skilled pirate hunter--if he takes on the pirates and rescues Kris. The remainder of the movie chronicles Evan's and Jesse's adventures as they set out to rescue Kris, including a plot-rich stop on an island to re-provision the ship. In due course, Evan and his crew follow the pirates into a forbidding cave (ala Indiana Jones), do battle with an army of skeleton warriors assigned from antiquity to protect the cave and its contents, reunite Carmen and Kris, and sink the pirate ship and its mates. With a budget of over $1 million, shot in High-Def, is this a fair step into adult mainstream movies?
