Synopsis


The Pirates! Band of Misfits
Set sail for fun with this family-friendly Aardman Animations adventure following a bumbling, abundantly bearded scallywag who competes against his two biggest rivals for the title Pirate of the Year. Try as he might, the Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) just can't be taken seriously as a plunderer. But that might change if he could only manage to win the Pirate of the Year competition. As the event gets under way, the Pirate Captain makes it his mission to leave dreaded foes Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) sinking in his wake. Before that can happen, though, the determined Pirate Captain will have to seek out the help of a love-struck scientist (David Tennant) and defeat a malevolent queen (Imelda Staunton), who might just send him down to Davy Jones' Locker. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Pirates Band Of Misfits is a fun, entertaining movie. The stop motion is as good as anything you'll see and is a nice change of pace to the mostly computer-animated kid's movies out there. The plot is fun an fast paced, with familiar themes such as finding oneself and staying true to one's crew underlying the story line. There are plenty of jokes and gags, even ones that adults will appreciate. On the other hand, there aren't many really truly memorable jokes or one-liners. In short, a very good kid's movie, bot quite a great one, but well worth your time.

    A Animated Film for Everyone

    Too many animated films are dumbed down and recycle tired plots and don't try to do anything different. Pirates is not like that at all. It has great animation and wonderful voice acting, but that alone doesn't make a great movie. The plot/story is engaging and, like the Incredibles, it works on many levels. Young kids to adults can enjoy this film.

    This was my first 3d movie purchase. Bought this movie because it was on sale and thought my kids would enjoy it. The main menu 3d is really good, but the rest of the movie's 3d is okay, a bit of a disappointment after seeing the menu. The movie kept my 7 and 10 year old entertained, but my 12 year old didn't really care for it.

    Not really sure where this thing lies. Not really a kids movie, not a good movie for adults- not sure what they were going for here. There is a simple moral to the story and some funny moments, but the story is fairly bland and a little nonsensical in parts.

    I bought this movie during the buy one get one free sale. It is a movie I wish I did not buy. If you are looking for a family movie of quality keep looking... P.S. I have most Disney movies that have been released on blu-ray so I may be spoiled.

    I want to like this, because of all the work that went into making it (I watched the 'making of' featurette), but it was just so boring. I tried a couple times and I could not stay awake.

    This was fun to watch, had a lot of funny parts and the 3D made it worth buying. Some of the humor was subtle and I laughed at several things the second time I watched it that went unnoticed the first time around.

    I thought this movie was a pretty good kids flick. Nothing ground breaking but there is not much that is anymore. The plot was good the bluray A/V presentation was very nice. Probably about a 3.5-4 out of 5.
