This is one of the few times I watched something from Aardman and found myself watching the clock...
January 7, 2013
This is a good Aardman Animations feature, from a studio that's proved itself capable of being better than good.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits is cinematic booty that shines like gold.

The Pirates! is the first truly great animated film of the year: a painstakingly-modelled laugh riot that boggles the mind while tickling the funnybone.

September 15, 2012
It's got great vocal talent and well-done animation, but it proves once again that the story is the key ingredient.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 15, 2012
A rollicking good time that offers enough broad comedy mixed with more cerebral sight gags to ensure this will be a family favourite for years to come.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
September 12, 2012
It's full of jokes for adults that will fly right over kids' heads, but retains just enough plot conflict and slapstick to keep younger audiences involved as well.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The Aardman folks might not have created a pirate film to rival the big screen's best, but they've created a subtle parody of pirate movies that's well worth watching.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Yes, the film feels childish, but in the best possible way.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits deserves two doubloons up. It shivered me funny bone.

It's a fun frolic young and old alike should enjoy equally, filled with sights and sounds so richly rewarding one almost has to see it twice to be able to appreciate them all.

May 12, 2012
The fun, infectious tone is set early on and never peters out. The humor is kind of like Monty Python for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 11, 2012
Droll and charming, and will probably appeal more to fans of Monty Python and 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' than to young kids...

This is a very funny, very good looking movie getting lost in the fray.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 10, 2012
Warning to all ye who enter: drollery, Pythonesque absurdity, and some smartly silly swashbuckling with history ahead. The dark corners of wooden ships and buildings ground the zaniness in Victorian atmosphere, so even modern jokes sail smoothly along.
May 7, 2012
The action is beautifully staged, delightful, and exciting.
May 4, 2012
The best laughs come around the fringes, with great throwaway gags and Grant's usual self-deprecating way with dialogue.
