Luther’s Movie Review- Pirates, Band of Misfits
Imagine if Shrek was boring, not funny, slow and generally bad, then it would be called Pirates, Band of Misfits. I saw this film with an audience of several families. I nodded, but managed to mostly stay awake. Some of the kids were playing in the theater and no body tried to call them down, because they were more interesting than the movie.
Yep, I was bored, the kids were bored and the parents were bored. See a pattern yet? This film is from the same folks who made the very entertaining Chicken Run, so maybe this is the sophomore jinx. The CGI is very good, the 3D is not overwhelming, but the plot, characters and dialogue are bad or worse. Oh yeah, they actually kill people in this movie. Not a suggested off screen killing, but a “for no good reason” actual stabbing and dying on screen murder. For a show aimed at
kids, I was actually shocked.
The only folks I would recommend this to are film or animation students. As far as entertainment value, take the kids to the park instead. I give this wreck of a movie one tiger paw, and it could be lower.
