The Caribbean, the 17th century: After her husband Lord Hamilton (Menyhért René Balog-Dutombé) while on a mission to the Antilles, and she cannot secure support from the British crown (the crown being Hamilton's employer), Lady Elena Hamilton (Anita Skulteti) turns to Thomas Butler (Anita Skulteti), also known as the gentleman pirate, for assistance. Butler agrees to help Elena, but only in exchange for a night with the lady, much to the dismay of his girlfriend Pilar (Venere Torti). Elena agrees reluctantly, but insists she won't pay up before he has fulfilled his end of the bargain.

After Butler has collected a rag-tag team of fighters and adventurers, course is set to Maracaibo, wheere Lord Hamilton is held by the Spanish gouvernor de la Vega (Laszlo Madarasz). On their way, Butler and crew capture a British galleon to arrive at Maracaibo in the guise of a British delegation. However, they soon have to find out they were betrayed and are all thrown into the dungeon, all but Elena and Pilar, whom de la Vega and his right-hand-man want to rape first - but Elena manages to overcome de la Vega, take him hostage, and free Butler and his men and Lord Hamilton alike, and while the others put a plan into action that would blow Maracaibo to Kingdom Come, Butler risks his life to save Pilar ...

Of course, everything ends happily - with an explosion, yes, but happily all the same.


Towards the end of his life, Italian cult director Joe D'Amato has found his niche primarily in porn moviemaking, and he rarely strayed from the genre. Predators of the Antilles however is a family-friendly pirate movie, and in terms of both story and execution it's a throwback to Italian adventure movies from the 1960's. And the film has its charm, too, due to its sense of nostalgia, its narrative simplicity, its pretty decent sets and costumes (at least considering the film's apparent low budget), its well-captured atmosphere,and some quite well-made sea battles (which are very probably nothing more than stock footage though). However, on the downside, Joe D'Amato isn't exactly an action filmmaker, meaning his action scenes are awkwardly filmed and edited and lack proper pacing, plus D'Amato didn't exactly have the greatest cast on hand, which doesn't help much either.

Still, the film is entertaining enogh to kill less than 90 minutes, just don't expect a masterpiece, not even one of D'Amato's best or most (unintentionally) hilarious films.
