Story


Hugh Grant, starring in his first animated role, is the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain - a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate of the Year Award.

It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..feels a bit forced, the magic of the medium never does..”
by Adam Markovitz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..hits the usual kids' pic stops-pop montage, theme-park-ride action, heartwarming affirmation of true friendship..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..the movie could almost certainly be seen in 2-D without a loss in overall entertainment value..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
