Primates of the Caribbean (2012)

Monkeying Around

Marco Macaco takes pride in his work as a beach officer but at the same time he has a soft spot for Lulu who he has always been sweat on. But Marco has a rival in the form of Carlo who builds a casino on the beach and whose charming persona draws Lulu to him. But it seems that Carlo has plans not only to take over the entire island but also force Lulu to marry him and only Marco can save the day. The only trouble is that the casino is not all that it seems and Marco has a huge battle on his hands.

Whilst the version of "Primates of the Caribbean" featured different actors doing the voice work this animated movie has a Danish heritage and I wonder with my lack of knowledge when it comes to Danish entertainment whether I am missing something. Basically I wonder whether the characters of Marco, Lulu and Carlo are favourites of children in Denmark and as such this animated movie works for them.

I say that because "Primates of the Caribbean" did very little for me with these characters which were more annoying than amusing and the storyline is pretty non existent with a lot of time it feeling like someone came up with some set piece scenes to show off the animation work and try to entertain. But in truth the animation work is not spectacular enough to work purely on a few set piece scenes.

What this all boils down to is that "Primates of the Caribbean" might entertain a young child who will just see funny faced monkeys but for anyone else this has serious limitations when it comes to enjoyment.
