2012. 88 min.

PGV.

Animated adventure.

The stop-motion masters at animation company Aardman (Wallace & Gromit) have lovingly crafted another silly comedy peppered with quirky British humour.

The plot revolves around the self-important but useless Pirate Captain (energetically voiced by Hugh Grant) who, in an attempt to win Pirate of the Year, runs into Charles Darwin (David Tennant) and finds out his parrot is a priceless dodo.

Double-crossing, sword fights and slapstick ensue.

This would be a four-star film if not for a few jarring moments of casual cruelty and the Pirate Captain’s annoying selfishness, but the astounding attention to detail and flood of clever jokes make it worth watching.
