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.
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 pirate crews.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits top movie star voices are Hugh Grant, Martin Freeman, Imelda Staunton, David Tennant, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Lenny Henry, Brian Blessed, and more. Featured Animation ranks this movie a 3.5 on a scale from 1 to 5.
