The Pirates: Band of Misfits Review

I found myself looking forward to this movie’s release this past summer. I believe it was the first of three claymations of the year and I was looking forward to something besides 3D animation.

Although after almost falling asleep a couple times I found myself wondering, “What is going on with this movie!?”

The claymation was good and didn’t take anything away from the movie, however it didn’t really add any extra pizzaz either. It was just good. They just didn’t seem to push the boundaries with it or try anything new.

The story could have been much better. I think this is where the film let me down most of all. The story wasn’t very interesting and it didn’t have much to do with pirates or competing with other pirates. It probably could have been better if they would have left London out of the story and focused more on competing with the other pirates crews.

[quote picture=”” name=”Pirate Captain” align=”right”] “Behind every captain, there’s a crew. Sure, some of you are as ugly as a sea cucumber, some of you are closer to being a chair or coat rack than a pirate, and some of you are fish I’ve just dressed up in a hat…”

“Fire all things that go bang!” [/quote]

The comedy was also pretty terrible. You can usually count on an animated movie to get some laughs or have some funny moments but those were few and far between in this flick.

I could give other reasons why I didn’t enjoy this movie or ways it could have been better but I’m getting tired just writing about this movie. 6.5 stars on IMDB will back me up on this.
