Alcohol is a common commodity among these motley pirates who order drinks in taverns and imbibe while on duty on the ship. During a heavy storm, the crew gets one man drunk and then watches him fall overboard and drown. A group of sailors fight over a bottle of rum and man is killed. Rough treatment is also common among the shipmates. An older man pushes a young boy and threatens him. Pirates attack an old man who dies as a result. Several characters are shot in the chest, stabbed with swords, and slashed with knives during fights. Some blood is shown. Pirates exchange gunfire with others and some men are injured. Men lie, double-cross others and steal.
