The Pirate Captain is not especially impressive, and his crew is unlikely to frighten anyone, but charm and determination go a long way. So, goaded by Black Bellamy, he decides to enter the 'Pirate of the Year' contest, hoping to win the ultimate treasures: respect and honour. Before he can complete his plan, he must sail through the storm of disapproval from pirate-hating Queen Victoria, and enlist the help of super scientist Charles Darwin. As with all the films of Aardman Studios, there’s no shortage of excitement, humour and daftness on display.
