Most helpful review
Warm hearted quirky and very EnglishBy a customer , 01 Jan 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I haven't seen the very final cut but have seen the work in progress (repeatedly) at crew rushes and showings of the film in it's later stages.
It's funny, the characters are endearing and it's visually incredible - a level of detail and sense of reality that fully justifies the long process of stop motion animation.
The relationship between the Captain blundering through life and his second in command trying to keep him on course forms the backbone of the film, but behind them are a cast of eccentrics and larger than life characters that keep the interest on 2nd, 3rd and umpteenth viewings.
I enjoy the complete contempt for historical fact and the weird twisting of famous characters, play spot the anachronism!
What I don't like.. not much, one or two jokes seem a bit 14 year old boyish, but that's being picky.

Pirates (as you've never seen them before).By jeepsterer (9 reviews) , 18 Jan 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Absolutelly ace! This movie contains more than one level to cater for olduns as well as younguns. This is the best animated movie so far - and they continue to get better! The characters are larger than life and just as believable. Keep a sharp look out for the background gems!
very enjoyableBy Neil76 (2 reviews) , 16 Jan 2013Very good and very funny film, the kids and I loved it. It was a good story and flowed very well, with plenty of good british humour
Pythonesque comedy for big kidsBy a customer , 14 Jan 2013Lots of good British humour maybe more aimed to adults than kids! Very quirky - great visual jokes that would probably not all be seen on just one viewing.
Good film for kids and adultsBy a customer , 14 Jan 2013This is up to the usual high standard expected from Nick Park and co. Its clever because there are subtle jokes that only adults will pick up. The making of is also interesting especially when compared to how his early films were made.
