I saw this film two weeks ago and was so disappointed that I haven’t wanted to post a review on it. I really don’t know where to begin except to say that is it far too long, way too confusing in plot, and the characters have been completely over taken by extreme continual action and computer generated graphics.

However, if you’ve seen the first two, you will have to see this one also and put up with all the bad in order to receive the dozen or so golden nuggets that the film does have.

I can’t really begin to tell you what this movie is really all about. Is it about a love story between Elizabeth and Will? Well yes. What about Elizabeth and Jack? Well that is complicated isn’t it? Maybe it is a loves story between Davy Jones and Calypso? Well maybe not! What about Will rescuing his father? Yes, that too. Then there is Lord Beckett who is obsessed with eliminating all the pirates for some reason. Then there is all the folk trying to rescue Jack. Also, there is the story line about all the pirate leaders and pirate King. In the end, there are all the sea legends and monsters which seem to overtake the rest of the storyline threads.

Despite all the action, there are still moments in which the movie lags and drags. And talking about the action, there are an awful lot of violent and gruesome scenes in this movie. Parents should take care in evaluating whether their children are mature enough to view this episode. It goes even beyond the 2nd movie in gross displays of violence.

The greatest disappointment for me is the lack of character exploration. A Dozen or so interesting characters were introduced with little or no development. Even the Jack Sparrow character was not used as much in this movie as one might expect. They introduce us to Jack’s father (Keith Richards) which is interesting, but it is little more than a passing cameo and leaves you begging for more.

The end leaves something to be desired, and obviously a fourth movie will be necessary in this series in order to rescue Will from the situation they left him in.             *Top

    The first Pirates of the Caribbean was great in every way, the best part of the other two was the special effects… the question now is, if they come out with a fourth, will it maintain the quality of the first?
