The Pirates! Band of Misfits Review

Screen Shot 2015-09-01 at 7.02.59 PM
   The Pirates! Band of Misfits is an entertaining animated film that properly depicts how to combine both kid and adult humor without being so heavy-handed. Sure, it also has some issues and it isn’t a perfect film, but it sure is fun and a nice hour and half that won’t feel wasted in anyway. As always Aardman’s distinct animation style is incredible, especially in this new setting where we are presented with probably the best animated beards ever put to screen. It’s really ambitious and presents some incredible action sequences, which are cool to look at, but don’t really meld together with the rest of the film even though they’re so impressive. Hugh Grant is great as The Pirate Captain, truly adding a fun personality to the character, providing us with a charismatic lead we mostly end up liking. In conclusion, The Pirates! Band of Misfits is a fun film to watch with kids, full of nice references, quirky humor, and beautiful animation, ranking it at a 79 out of 100
