Movie: "Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End"
Genre: Action / Adventure
Directed by: Gore Verbinski
Writing credits: Ted Elliot
Reviewer: Dr. Boogie
Plot: Jack Sparrow's stuck in Davey Jones' Locker, Davey Jones is running amock, and evil businessmen in powdered wigs may rule the world! The horror!!
Review: The final movie in the trilogy is packed with more of the same. Sword fights, epic sea battles, Johnny Depp acting like an effete lunatic, all the things you've come to expect from the series. There's even a rather odd scene when two of the least appetizing pirates get to take a gander under Keira Knightley's frock. I suspect they'll be leaving that bit out when they next update the ride at Disneyland.
As usual, Jack Sparrow dominates most of the movie. They kind of hinted that Captain Jack might be a little crazy in the first couple movies, but this time, you get the Full Monty, complete with his multiple personalities putting on a one act play for him. Toward the end, though, you'll witness his craziness and on-again off-again downplayed in favor of more test heroics.
The end of the movie, though, was a bit of a disappointment for me. I'll try not to spoil it, but suffice to say, the villain is in a prime position to eliminate all the protagonists with very little effort, but he completely drops the balls for some inexplicable reason. Oh well. A happy ending plus a few special effects make for a satisfied moviegoing public.
(Scored on a 0.5 - 5 pickles rating: 0.5 being the worst and 5 being the best)
|I was a little pissed off when I left the theater. First of all, The end: Elizabeth and the blacksmith dude will meet (and fuck) once every 10 years? What a kind of happy ending is that?|
|Copper: I don't think that was cut from the movie because I vaguely remember it being mentioned somewhere. I've only seen the movie once, but I'd swear it was mentioned (maybe even in the second movie instead of the third?). But anyway, yeah, I was under the impression that Will's curse would be broken because Elizabeth was still waiting for him.|
