The hunters take to the sea to slay all the evil beasts that lurk within the sea. A young orphan who comes from a line of hunters takes to their ship and causes some chaos, then the soon to be captain and her are separated from the ship. They soon discover that maybe all isn’t what was said it truly was.

This was really fun, it was a bit dark and scary in places, which I hadn’t expected. I loved Maisie she was such an incredible protagonist. I really enjoyed all the action within this movie. Some of the themes were cruel and mean but it did have heart too.

The language was interesting as due to them being hunters, it was all broken English but as they were pirates then it made sense but still unusual to hear in a movie. It did get a little annoying in places but still it’s accurate to who the characters were.

I really liked this movie the world building, character progressions were amazing and the beautiful creatures were animated so stunningly. You could see elements of Moana in which it does say made by the animators of it, so it makes sense.

This is a really unique movie, has so much to tell and so much to learn and to love. I highly recommend it, but I’d advise older children only as it does have some darker elements and scary scenes.
