Pinky (Vinjar Pettersen) is a young and clever boy that has one wish: he wants to be a pirate. His biggest idol is Captain Sabertooth (Kyrre Haugen Sydness), the owner of the Dark Lady. Pinky’s getting older and wants to take a shot as a cabin boy. He tries his luck by talking to Langemann (Odd-Magnus Williamson), the captain’s right hand, to see if there is a place for him but he gets the cold shower.

The crew of the Dark Lady goes on a new mission to ‘Monkey Island’, where they hope to find loads of treasure. After some bumps and bruises, they finally get to the chest. Their frustration and disappointment grows when they find out that there isn’t any gold or jewelry inside. The captain isn’t happy at all and on molesting the chest, they find a treasure map to Lama Rama. This location holds loads and loads of the yellow stuff as well as the pearl of the King. Their bad mood is lifted and they’re filled with joy.

Due to certain circumstances, the crew gets the attention of the inhabitants of the island: vicious monkeys. They get to the barge unharmed, although the ship-boy has an unfortunate fate. On arrival in town, they’re glad to announce they’re in need of a new cabin boy and that there will be a grand activity to determine the successor. Because of this ruckus, some evil pirates take control of the situation, but they forgot about Pinky and his friend Raven (Sofie Bjerke). A lot of events happen afterwards, all with their own effect on the outcome of the story.

As this movie is meant for children, there are quite some cheesy lines or corny jokes. The overall flow of the story is quite fast at times, but can be forgiven since it is meant for a younger population. There are a few underlying thoughts that are being shown, like the fact that friendship is important or laughter is necessary. This is a great way to show these aspects on a different way.

The acting performance is great, as these actors already have played a role on the Norwegian television show. This means that they know the characters very well. As these are mostly Norwegian actors, it might be that you won’t know a lot of them, although they have a lot of experience. Captain Sabertooth has starred in quite some movies and series, and he plays this ‘alternative’ pirate really well. His trusty right hand, Langermann, has a rather long acting list which can be seen on screen as well. Pinky might be young but plays his role with quite some confidence although this is this first movie. As you can see, a lot of great names have worked together to give these feisty characters a face.

There are two extras on the DVD, namely the making of and a trailer. Although this doesn’t seem that much, the first extra is about 45 minutes of joy, so you have something to watch. It would have been nice if there were some bloopers as well, for instance.


If you have some pirate-loving children or you have a fond of them yourself, Captain Sabertooth and the Treasure of Lama Rama is something you can consider watching. The storyline might be a bit hectic and cheesy at times, it is a great way to see the effects of friendship and laughter and show these characteristics to your children. At any rate, the producer has put a lot of effort into making the movie, so you’ll have quite a nice and authentic feeling. Yarr, matey!
