Pirates of the 20th Century is an exciting Soviet action movie, full of adventures, stunts, and battles on the high seas.
A Soviet cargo ship is entrusted with an exceptionally valuable cargo – an industrial amount of medical grade opium. On their journey to Vladivostok, the Soviet crew picks up a seemingly shipwrecked sailor, Salekh. However, he ends up double-crossing them and helping a crew of modern day pirates attack the ship.
The pirates successfully raid the ship of its valuable cargo and leave the Soviet sailors to drown. Of course, though, the Soviet sailors fight for survival and end up in an epic showdown with their pirate enemy.
