¡Piratas! Una loca aventura
¡Piratas! Una loca aventura Rating: 71 out of 100 based on 19 reviews.
In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as 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! — (C) Sony

Screen Jabber
Patience is a virtue, a phrase that the folks at Aardman Animation studios will understand only too well. After endless accolades and praise it's easy to forget that the studio has produced only two stop motion animated films in the past 12 years.

Pirates have the best life when you think about it. The only rules they ever need to follow is the Pirate rule. Don't expect me to tell you land lover because even I make things up as I go when it comes to comedy. What we have here is the story of...

“The Pirates! Band of Misfits” is created by Aardman Animation, the same company that does “Wallace & Gromit,” so the stop-motion animation is incredible. Considering the animation is painstakingly done frame-by-frame, the detail and movements are...

Maniacally inventive and tightly packed, if not overpacked, "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" comes from the Aardman animation folks behind "Wallace & Gromit," "Chicken Run" and, more recently, "Arthur Christmas." Their latest may be easier to admire than...
New York Post
It’s hard to imagine a kids’ movie in which the hero could wax nostalgic about “running people through” — as in, with a sword — and make it sound kind of . . . adorable. But then, Pirate Captain (both his name and his title) is played by Hugh Grant.

Great Claymation, like the kind in this adventure from the legendary Aardman studios (Wallace & Gromit), still radiates a warmth that no mind-bending number of pixels can match. You can almost smell the brine in the boat helmed by Pirate Captain...

Shadows on the Wall
The Pirates! Aardman returns to hand-crafted clay-mation for this riotous seafaring romp. The film is almost too crowded with witty visual and verbal gags to catch on a single viewing. Although it's also too corny to be a real classic.

Sky Movies HD
Awash with jollity and drollery in equal measure, Gideon Defoe’s Pirates! book series was sailor-made for Aardman Studio’s brand of sophisticated, stop-motion silliness.
Empire
Another Aardman triumph. The animation house’s most technically ambitious project so far and, if not quite at the genius level of Wallace & Gromit, still a comedy treasure and far too good just for kids.
Time Out London
Movies like the ‘Shrek’ series have largely devalued the idea of a film aimed at both children and parents, but ‘The Pirates!’ gets the balance spot on. Kids will be enthralled by all the action, slapstick and yo-ho-ho-ing while the olds will get...

Aardman Animations have a deserved reputation for excellence. Pretty much everyone in the world loves the Wallace and Grommit short films; a lot of people loved the Wallace and Grommit feature, Curse of the WereRabbit, and here's plenty of fans of...

Though we’d love to see how Aardman handle Defoe’s followup, An Adventure With Communists, this amiable but overstretched diversion is unlikely to spawn a Caribbean franchise.
