Pirates’s Code The Adventures of Mickey Matson:
When we first learned we were going to be reviewing this one, I admit it, I went out and got the first movie (this is a sequel to that), Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure. I was impressed with how clean this movie was; all three of my children really enjoyed it. So when Pirate’s Code arrived, they could hardly wait for the evening to come and settle in with some popcorn to watch!
When it comes to Mickey Matson, he really knows how to have an adventure! Since my boys love pirates right now too, this definitely kept them on the edge of their seats from beginning to end. My husband loved the fact that Christopher Lloyd (from Back to the Future) was in it, since he has never seen a movie he starred in that bored him.
I admit it didn’t hold my attention for long; to be fair I am a bookworm – I always prefer to read the book. My son’s though, who are 9 and 5, really enjoyed all of the action in this one and the next day were out fighting pirates and digging in our yard for buried treasure (mixed feelings about that here!)
It wasn’t a bad film though, not at all. Its good for some laughs and it has simple enough story for younger kids to follow along too. Sure, there’s some violence, but nothing awful. I think it gave my lil “pirates” ideas for some new moves. lol
If you have a pirate lover, or just an adventurer in general you can purchase a copy at: Pure Flix. 🙂
