Steve Zissou vs. the pirates

pirates

From the Captain’s Memos, recent pirate activity compared to The Life Aquatic:

I would like to put side by side a checklist of what has happened in the Indian Ocean the past day and what has happened in The Life Aquatic. Mind you there are some differences, but ultimately the same…

REAL LIFE

1. Pirates board American flagged ship and hold crew hostage.
2. Things are taken from the ship as plunder.
3. Americans on board attack pirates and re-take ship.
4. Pirates are thwarted from ship with a hostage.
5. Americans gather up a rescue plan to save hostage.

Well, up until this point things were the same. The main difference here is that this guy still has yet to be rescued. I would also like to point out also that he is in the middle of the ocean because his dumbass capters ran out of gas. He also tried to escape but that failed. So hopefully like Life Aquatic, an awesome shootout ensues and he gets rescued.

THE LIFE AQUATIC

1. Pirates board the Belafonte taking the crew hostage
2. Things are taken from the ship as plunder
3. Zissou attacks pirates and re-takes ship
4. Pirates are thwarted from ship with a hostage.
5. Zissou and crew gather up a rescue plan to save hostage.
6. Zissou and crew come to island where hostage is held.
7. Amazing shootout ensues and Zissou saves the hostage.
