Pirates Code (The Adventures of Mickey Matson #2)

Title: Pirates Code (The Adventures of Mickey Matson #2)
Studio: Pure Flix
Media: 1 Disc DVD
Year: 2014
My rating is 5+
The characters first introduced to us in Mickey Matson and The Copperhead Head Treasure are back again to help save the world from a device that would shut down all electronic devices. In Pirates Code, we meet new characters both those who fight for the Patriot team as well as those seeking to destroy devices needed in some cases to sustain life.
One of the themes taught is working as a team and not fighting solo or thinking it is easy to defeat an enemy. I was reminded of some movies recently out that show superheroes. In this adventure, we learn that character is of utmost importance. While some of the movie might seem silly, I believe it is done with purpose. The purpose being to make sure younger audiences aren’t frightened and also sometimes we all just need to laugh, which brings comic relief.
Of all the action and adventure, kids of all ages will enjoy seeing the gadgets and understanding what true courage looks like in the movie. Like the fist Mickey Matson movie, Mickey is reminded again of what his grandfather taught him that doing the right thing is not always the easy thing. In fact, there are times when doing the right action can be hard such as standing up for a friend or not returning an unkind word when one is delivered to us.
I know when you visit the website you will see as I did that a third movie will be coming soon. These movies are a great addition to family libraries to be viewed repeatedly and enjoyed. Today we rely on technology for a lot of living, but nothing can match the brain God has given us. We don’t have to stop thinking just because some device can think for us. In fact, as in the movie, we need to see that being able to analyze a problem and devise a solution independent of some gadget is a wise habit.
So grab both movies, pop some popcorn and enjoy good wholesome movies that entertain and teach at the same time! Have fun and invite some family or friends!
