Pirates Review: Three Charming Leads Make For A Fun, Slight Adventure

Elliot Edusah, Reda Elazouar, and Jordan Peters in Pirates

Yates’ experience as a writer and director comes largely from short films. pirates first feature film. Less than an hour and a half later, Yates still seems to be working with that short-film mentality in some ways. pirates covers only one day for boys; It starts in the afternoon and lasts until midnight. In the meantime, these best friends are on the brink of something big and indulge in everything from marijuana to petty thefts while enjoying the sparkle of being together again. Even with a little background on their friendship, it’s easy to feel the love and friendship they all share. Edusah, Peters and Elazouar have great chemistry, they all get along so well that they truly feel like friends for life.

Along these lines, the three main actors make their characters feel alive. Yates’ script doesn’t give these kids much insight other than New Year’s quirks, but the actors’ performances help each character feel real. He has Elazig as the most laughing, frail, ever-hungry Child of the three, and Peters makes his heart race as Two Tonne strives to give the best to their friend (and the girl he loves, Kassius Nelson’s Sophie). everybody. Finally, Edusah does well to play up Cappo’s fragmented emotions; He loves being with his friends and is extremely loyal, but he also has news that will definitely tear them apart. This creates a contradictory mindset, and Edusah portrays it well.

One of Yates’ strengths piratesHis witty shooting style, as well as his ability to switch between teenage quirks and the heavier emotions of growing up. As Cappo initially said while preparing his “breakup” speech for the men, this will be their last vacation like this.

Pirates Review: Three Charming Leads Make For A Fun, Slight Adventure

Elliot Edusah, Reda Elazouar, and Jordan Peters in Pirates
Yates’ experience as a writer and director largely comes from short films, making Pirates his first full feature. Clocking in at under an hour and a half, it seems that in some ways Yates is still working with that short film mentality. Pirates only covers this one day for the boys; it starts in the afternoon and goes through midnight. In between, these best friends indulge in everything from weed to some light shoplifting as they bask in the glow of being back together while on the verge of something great. Even with little backstory padding their friendship, it’s easy to feel the love and camaraderie they all share. Edusah, Peters, and Elazouar have great chemistry between them, all playing off each other so well that they genuinely feel like lifelong friends.
Along those lines, the three main actors all make their characters feel lived-in. Yates’ script doesn’t give as much insight into these boys outside of their New Year’s antics, but the actors’ performances help each character seem real. Of the three, Elazouar pulls in the most laughs as the dim and perpetually hungry Kid, and Peters tugs on heartstrings as Two Tonne fights to give his friends (and the girl he’s crushing on, Kassius Nelson’s Sophie) the best New Year’s ever. Finally, Edusah does well in playing Cappo’s torn emotions; he loves being with his friends and is fiercely loyal, yet he also has news to share that will certainly break them apart. That makes for a conflicted mindset, and Edusah portrays it well.

One of Yates’ strengths in Pirates, aside from his slick filmmaking style, is his ability to shift between teenage antics and the heavier emotions that come with growing up. As Cappo says early on while preparing his “break up” speech for the boys, this holiday is going to be the last one they spend like this. The thought of losing traditions and close contact with childhood friends is one that many can relate to, and Yates weaves that into Pirates very well. At the same time, the shorter runtime does prevent some things from being explored, such as additional depth to the overall friend dynamic and further information about the music group Cappo is leaving behind. There is the impression that some facts are missing, and it would’ve been nice to understand more about what the boys are trying to achieve.
Ultimately, though, Pirates is about three friends trying to have one last epic blowout before adulthood really comes calling. It is a quick, fun adventure with some characters who are very charming and warrant maybe just a little bit more attention. With three winning performances at its center, Pirates knows how to have a good time even while it hits home in small, effective ways. Anyone looking for a short burst of entertainment would likely enjoy checking this out, particularly if they love stories about the bonds of friendship and the lengths one will go to just to have a really great time.

Pirates is now available on digital and on demand. It is 80 minutes long and rated TV-14.
