Synopsis

After his best friend is killed in a shark attack, Quinn, a lovable yet tenacious seal assembles a SEAL TEAM to fight back against a gang of sharks overtaking the neighborhood. But this merry band of international seals are not at all trained for such a mission. They seek the help of a much more skillful combatant, Claggart, but even his tricks and flips can't whip these guys into shape. However, with a little bit of ingenuity, intelligence and a lot of heart, our SEAL TEAM may actually be able to bring peace back to their undersea community.

Rather enjoyable fun for the entire family...

Well, this 2021 animated movie is definitely well-worth a watch.

When I sat down to watch "Seal Team" with my 11 year old son, we hadn't heard about the movie prior to watching it. But the movie's cover/poster definitely seemed interesting, and let's just face it, the title of the movie was just brilliant.

The storyline told in "Seal Team", as written by Greig Cameron, Brian Cleveland, Jason Cleveland, Wayne Thornley, Paul Ian Johnson, Phil Lorin and Anthony Silverston was every bit as fun as it was entertaining and enjoyable. So there was certainly something for all ages in the audience when you watch "Seal Team". I have to admit that I was genuinely entertained by this animated movie.

The animation and art style was good, and it was bringing the marine life characters nicely to life on the screen. Lots of interesting and fun characters, not to mention memorable and loveable.

With "Seal Team" being an animated movie, of course having a good voice cast is quite necessary. And they certainly had that for this movie.

If you enjoy animated movies, then I can strongly and warmly recommend you sit down to watch "Seal Team".

My rating of "Seal Team" lands on a six out of ten stars.

A surprisingly funny well-made animated feature.

Cape fur seal, Quinn (Jesse T. Usher) lives on Seal Island along with his best friend Benji (Julian Smith). The seals due to the multitude of sharks around their island home primarily subsist on terrible tasting barnacles only occasionally able to catch a fish and break from the taste of "sand and disappointment". When Benji is eaten by Great White shark Grimes (Matthew Rhys), Quinn is spared the same fate after being rescued by Claggart (J. K. Simmons) former leader of Hyper Marine Military Force (HMMF) a team of sea mammals, with cape fur seal tech expert Switch (Sharlto Copley) and cigar chomping striped dolphin Dolph (Dolph Lundgren), who did clandestine military missions until a sea mine destroyed their ship and left Claggart as an abrasive loner. Upon learning of Claggart's past Quinn recruits fellow cape fur seals consisting of energized eccentric Beth (Kristen Schaal) and boastful coward Geraldo (Patrick Warburton) in the hopes of having Claggart train them in his military skills to form a team to fight back against the sharks. With a team of misfits both new and old coming together the team set out to fight back against the sharks with Grimes ready with an insidious plan.

Seal Team marks the latest film from South African based production house, Triggerfish Animation, who cut their teeth on modestly budgeted features like Adventures in Zambezia and Khumba and are responsible for co-producing a number of TV specials for British TV along with Magic Light Pictures. The studio currently also has a number of TV projects in development for streamers such as Disney+ and Netflix. Seal Team marks the studio's first feature film in about 8 years and on the surface from its celebrity voice cast to its pun-centric title seems like it's tailored made as one of those middle of the road foreign animated films from the likes nWave Pictures or Vanguard Animation that are tailor made for bargain bins in your local store, but in execution the movie surprisingly has a lot of charm and humor to it and despite being on the lower end of the budget spectrum is considerably more stylish than I was expecting.

The movie is very much a parody of "men on a mission" formula military movies down to the fact the movie flashes back to the 80s to show the glory days of HMMF and features Dolph Lundgren in a prominent cameo as a cigar chomping dolphin who fits well within the characterization seen in projects like The A-Team or any number of Cannon Films. The movie lovingly sends up the tropes of this type of military team movie with all the tropes and trappings we know and love from the genre and gets a lot of mileage from its creative weaponry and gadgets like a stealth suit made out of octopi, a barracuda firing weapon called the "barazooka", and a number of other fun elements that lead to some amusing moments.

The cast is very entertaining featuring the likes of J. K. Simmons, Patrick Warburton, Kristen Schaal, and Sharlto Copley are all strong supporting performers who give real life and energy to their performances and help augment the film's humor. Jessie T. Usher as Quinn makes a good protagonist who plays off well against the set of characters, and Matthew Rhys is having fun chewing the scene as the villainous Great White Shark Grimes who's both threatening as an antagonist and pretty funny. The animation is really strong for a smaller studio with Triggerfish going for a slightly simplified style in terms of the designs and animation that almost looks like a stylized stop-motion and falls well in line with the quality of their TV specials they've produced in the intervening years.

Not every joke lands as there are elements such as running gags that aren't all that funny such as British Singer-Songwriter Seal playing a singing cape fur seal called Seal Seal and some gags work better than others, but the humor has so many diverse and amusing moments (including some cheeky references to other shark movies) that when I wasn't laughing I was smiling.

Seal Team is well above average for the standards of many animated films from smaller production houses and with a team of well utilized comic talents and humor and approach that succeeds more often than it stumbles, Seal Team will make enjoyable viewing.

Daggnabbit! They are SEA LIONS ffs

So simple to have corrected - lazy and the frame rate of the animation is choppy and sub par - I only took a look due to the high value voice acting. But if they only depicted pinnapeds san external ears, I'd be more on board.
