Format: Blu-ray
The Pirates, Band of Misfits is another in a long line of stop-motion (Claymation) titles from the wonderfully creative folks of Aardman Animation. You've probably seen previous works of theirs from the old Wallace & Gromit shorts right up to newer movies like Chicken Run and Curse of the Weir Rabbit. So if you've seen any of them, then you pretty much know what to expect here.

The stop-motion animation is superb as always though I found the overall storyline a bit lacking in depth. I can't quite put my finger on it, but somehow even though a lot of the individual scenes are quite funny and Hugh Grant did his usual high quality voice acting and there's the usual Aardman action; still the parts always seemed better than the whole some how. So I can't quite give it a ringing endorsement.

Still the kids should enjoy it as it's colourful and loud and waaaay over the top. But for parents, it may not have much long term rewatchability. At least that's how I find it personally. Your mileage may vary.

The bluray does look superb though and the audio track is a full 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio in both English and Quebecois French. There's also a DD 5.1 track in Spanish. As for extra's, there's a nice 20 min. short called "You want to be a Pirate" and a couple of smaller shorts as well. They're all very well done. Plus a very nice 20 min. documentary on how you make a stop motion movie (very labour intensive) and a shorter 8 min. piece on how they made the bathtub chase scene. Plus the usual assortment of trailers, etc.

5 stars for the superb animation, 4 for the DTS audio and 3 for the overall storyline.

By OpenMind TOP 500 REVIEWER on Oct. 16 2012
Format: Blu-ray
The Pirate Captain hopes to win the "Pirate of the Year" award this time around. His faithful crew--from the "Surprisingly Curvaceous Pirate" to the "Pirate with Gout"--think he has a decent chance. His competition is stiff, though, and he hasn't amassed nearly enough booty to be a serious contender for the prize. While boarding a vessel one day, he meets Charles Darwin, who tells him that his parrot mascot is actually a rare dodo that could bring him untold riches at the Royal Academy's yearly competition in London. The Pirate Captain decides to attend the meeting despite the risk of incurring Queen Victoria's retribution, whose hatred of pirates is renowned.

The rest of the movie unfolds, and it's a well-proportioned mix of comedy, danger, and sentimentality. The filmmakers have refrained from going over-the-top with any of the particular elements (such as madcap action/hackneyed slapstick/overly risqué innuendo), and the result is a satisfying balance of laughter and suspense. The Pirates! even manages to convey some important messages about loyalty, fair play, and--of all things--biodiversity!

All of the parts of this film, including plot, visuals, acting, and pacing, are superlative.

Some "family" films by design are tailored towards a particular demographic. The Pirates!, on the other hand, will please children AND adults of all ages. It is definitely worth the purchase, since it won't get stale with repeated viewings and is a safe bet as far as entertaining friends or family goes.

An enjoyable movie. A bit too old to keep our 5 year old's attention. I believe she would enjoy it in an atmosphere of a few slightly older children to share the experience.
