The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D

 (2012)

The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

With a rag-tag crew at his side, and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Pirate Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz 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 and team up with a young Charles Darwin.

For more about The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D and the The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D Blu-ray release, see the The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Pirates! Band of Misfits arrives on Blu-ray 3D with a fairly lackluster presentation. To be sure, the general attributes which rated so highly on the 2D-only version of the film carry over here. The Pirates! doesn't suffer a bit in 3D in terms of stability, detailing, and color. It remains an animation rock, yielding substantial details around most every frame. The models are replicated with startling precision, with every little nuance on characters, clothes, structures, and the like precise right down to the faintest line, speckle, and insignificant texture. Wooden boards, stone roads, tiled floors, and similar manmade environmental objects look fantastic. Colors are strong, a hair dim, perhaps (as was the case with the 2D transfer), but nicely balanced and true, whether an orange beard, the Captain's red overcoat, or blue ocean waters. Similar to the 2D transfer, banding is practically nonexistent even under the most challenging circumstances. The film looks great, but unfortunately, the 3D elements don't do much to boost it into the next level of animated excellence.

Though Sony's 3D transfer serves up sufficient general depth, there's just not much aggressive 3D content to enjoy. Most shots yield a somewhat perceptible sense of space between objects, looking off into the distance no matter how relatively short or long, but the slight added depth isn't really enough to warrant a watch (or a 3D purchase). Sadly, there's not much else, and nothing that truly dazzles in the third dimension. There are a few good 3D-specific effects. The Captain brandishes his sword and points it towards the audience near the beginning, but the effect is minimal. Cutlass pushes a diamond towards the audience upon her introduction, but again only to noticeable, not "eye-popping" effect. Fake eyeballs pop out of a Pirate flag right before the pirates board the Beagle, which represents probably the single-best 3D effect in the film. There's some scattered debris that efforts to pop out of the screen throughout, and a few minor but impressive moments such as when the Queen holds a pair of sunglasses in front of her eyes in the final act and viewers can really see and feel the spacing between the glasses and her eyes. Otherwise, there's just nothing to get the blood pumping. This is a pedestrian 3D image that doesn't approach the excellence of the finest Blu-ray 3D discs. It's a serviceable 3D watch, but chances are 3D veterans won't be too thrilled with the end result.


The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Pirates! Band of Misfits floats onto Blu-ray with a wonderful DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, the same found on the 2D-only release. The track plays big, spreading out easily across the front end while employing rich, detailed sound through the entire range and across a number of sonic elements. Cramped and well- spaced elements alike enjoy the same quality detailing and placement, whether the somewhat closed-in "Ham Nite" aboard the Captain's vessel or the bigger, rowdier bar in which he signs up for the contest. Listeners always feel a part of the environment, even if the rear speakers don't quite play with as much volume or information as they might should. Music is well-spaced and crisp, too. The Rock-inspired tunes that play throughout the movie feature excellent clarity and a good, balanced low end. Bass rattles in several instances, notably when the whale crashes into the bar and introduces Black Bellamy. Crashing waves punish the soundstage, cannonballs whiz across from one speaker to the next, and other action/comedic mayhem moments are played with an energetic cadence and superior clarity. Dialogue is smooth and center-focused, but nicely reverberates when the situation dictates, such as heard later in the movie at the scientific symposium and awards show. This is a good, entertaining track that's just about everything an animated movie sound presentation should be.
