When looking for a good family movie, nothing can beat a good adventure flick, right? Kids- especially boys- absolutely love adventure! They love a story of good overcoming evil, and a hero saving the day. And of course, nothing could be better than that hero being a kid just like them. Pirate's Code: The Adventures of Mickey Matson fits that bill perfectly.
In this follow up to Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure, Mickey Matson is at it again; this time pitted against the evil Admiral Ironsides and his gang of pirates who are intent on destroying civilization. They're new invention, the Tesla Coil, is a weapon of mass destruction that will send an electromagnetic pulse throughout the world, destroying every electronic device in existence. With the help of a secret organization, Mickey and his best friend Sully embark on a mission to stop the pirates from taking over a submarine and stealing the last part needed to complete their devastating weapon. If Admiral Ironsides succeeds in his plan, civilization will be sent back to the Stone Age. e It's a race against time, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
To prepare ourselves for this new movie, we decided to head to the store beforehand and pick up the first movie. It was a fun film and certainly enjoyable for my son, but honestly, if you haven't already seen it, it won't really matter too much. Anything necessary to the story is recapped throughout, but otherwise Pirate's Code could certainly stand on its own.
I must say, while we enjoyed the first movie, this one was even better. There was more action, more adventure, more fun. Even the acting and story-line were even better too! Don't get me wrong, it could be very cheesy and predictable at points...but such is the nature of kids movies, right? As a grown up, it might have seemed predictable... but my 7 year old absolutely loved it! And let's think about it... a weapon that could destroy all the electronics in the world? That's every child today's worst nightmare!! When the grown ups just cannot get the job done, its the kids to the rescue!! This is like the perfect balance of National Treasure, Pirates of the Caribbean and Spy Kids, all rolled into one! If you have a boy (or girl) who loves action, adventure, pirates, or spies, this is certainly going to be a hit! It certainly was in our home!
