Nothing exposes the pettiness of man's foibles quite like the beauty of the natural world, which almost always loses out in the end.

Michael Nordine, L.A. Weekly, 2014-09-15

 

"Pirates" is fun, though with a running time of more than two hours, it's overlong. And too many of its battle scenes are too dimly lit.

Soren Anderson, Seattle Times, 2014-09-11

 

While The Pirates has its moments -- as when Yeo-wol and Jang bond late in the film -- little of it is compelling as comedy, drama or action. About the only thing The Pirates steal is time.

Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com, 2014-09-12

 

It's a derivative trove of swashbuckling action, romance, comedy, special effects and revisionist history - the kind of film that would be pitched to studio execs as "Pirates of the Caribbean" meets "Free Willy."

Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, 2014-09-11

 

Neither the action nor the comedy in this action comedy is consistently strong.

Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, 2014-09-11
