A good animated pirate movie despite its rushed storytelling
Three boys named Alex, Max, and Califax discover an Aztec golden bowl in a museum that turns out to be a time traveling device that transports them to the time of the pirates where they must use the bowl to find the gold of El Dorado from the evil Blackbeard the pirate with the help of Anne Bonnie and many pirate friends.
A few years ago when this movie first aired on Cartoon Network as a part of a movie marathon, I watched it to see it for myself.
I thought it was gonna be the least good, but there were a lot things that got me interested. The animation was well-done, The characters were likable, The fantasy/action was good and the storyline keeps you interested of what's going on.
However, there was only one bad thing that seemed to ruin the entire movie: the storytelling. The acting turned out to be okay, but its just that the storytelling seemed to make pretty much some flaws and it rushed the storyline for no apparent reason.
The visuals and sound effects were simply put together and they weren't that bad and the pop song "Lass die leinen los" (which it got translated to When the winds are up) by the German singer Nena was simply good.
I've never read the "Die Abrafaxe" comic books in which this movie was based on, but I think it's way better than the comics since they had very different adventures.
I will recommend this movie to anyone who like Non-Disney movies and I am gonna give Gerhard Hahn and Tony Power a lot of credit for their brilliant work.
