The Barracuda Heist is a 2021 pirate brickfilm by Joshua Chawner.[1] It follows a sailor who arrives at an Imperial-occupied Caribbean harbour to rescue his imprisoned friends and make off with loot, leading to a ship chase and battle.[2] It represented a return to more regular brickfilming activity for Chawner, and was his first large-scale brickfilm project since The Great Getaway in 2017.[3]
