A pi­rate cap­tain ( Hugh Grant) whose ca­reer is a laugh­ing stock within his pi­rat­ing community takes up swords to win the cov­eted ‘‘ Pi­rate of the Year’’ award only to get per­suaded to go to Lon­don to en­ter his prized par­rot ( a dodo) in a pres­ti­gious sci­en­tific com­pe­ti­tion in this Aard­man an­i­mated ad­ven­ture. If it sounds a bit mad, that’s be­cause it is – in fact it bor­ders on be­ing bonkers. The stop mo­tion an­i­ma­tion is a treat, as is the healthy amount of hu­mour and the gen­eral sense of good fun.

Ex­tras: Film­maker’s com­men­tary and fea­turettes. NOT VIEWED.
