Couldn't be more right. I am shocked this got 87%. We saw it yesterday and it was utterly and completely mediocre. No big laughs, no cool plot, just clever animation that goes nowhere.

This is not a good film. It's not the worst I've ever seen. It's just really flat and dull.

It seems the audience vote is what you need to watch here at rotten tomatoes.
I expected so much more from this movie only to be disappointed.
The 3D was great, but the story just stank.
Vary hard to warm up to the pirate captain.
Surprised to see the critics give it such a high score when the audience gets it spot on.

That's interesting. I thought this one wasn't too bad. As for film critics, I have never had any faith in them. I think they are like politicians and lobbyists. Their views rarely ever represent mine and they are never objective!

Movie reviewers LOVE stop motion. Remind them of simpler times. Take a look around. Every movie released in the past decade that was made with stop motion received a ridiculously high score regardless of the story.

Um...the critics give it 7.2 outta 10. General moviegoers gave it 3.5 outta 5, which equals 7 outta ten. Looks like the critics and public gave it pretty much the same...

"Tom S" and "Miguel C" are literally the only person on here that doesn't love this movie. Plus, 87% of the critics gave a positive review. It's obvious that anyone that hates this film, has no sense of humor.

How is this movie at an 86%? What a waste of time and money.

I went into the movie not expecting much, but I thought it was pretty good. Not perfect or oustanding, but good and enjoyable.
