Please let this franchise be “at world’s end”.
This movie isn’t bad. It’s boring which is a bigger crime. The first two hours were a constant struggle to stay awake during or care about this movie. They would sprinkle Jack Sparrow in to keep you going like a shot of espresso but eventually your body adjusts.
My review for Dead Man’s Chest last year pretty much applies to this movie as well and I don’t feel like retyping it.
Let me just add two things:
- It’s like the writers and directors forgot what made the first one so great and so much fun. That movie was all about Jack Sparrow and a fun little pirate adventure. Then they went and made it all dark, twisty and unnecessarily complicated. It’s like, “Wow, Johnny Depp got nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for a role in this silly little pirate film. Let’s add more characters and cut his lines.”
- What happened to the two hour movie? Really?
