Reviewed : Aug.30th, 2012
Genre : Children’s Comedy
Story (from IMDB) :
Pirate Captain sets out on a mission to defeat his rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz for the Pirate of the year Award. The quest takes Captain and his crew from the shores of Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London.
Claymation is awesome. When you have the makers of suck great films as Chicken Run and Wallace And Gromit you know you are in for a good film. Now this is good but not as good as their previous films.
The animation for this film is one of its strongest points as it is rich and vibrant. Like most children’s movies they throw in adult themes and set pieces for you to catch. The characters also carry that over the top larger than life characters. Best part is their names for example the main characters name is the Pirate Captain. Simple and gets the joke done while also providing a small life.
Overall the humor and feel to the movie is that more of a big budget cartoon while the other films were a lower budget feel to them. While it is still funny and worth the view you won’t be watching them numerous times like his other films.
