Against all my expectations, this film
works well. It's just full of goofy bits of old-fashioned nonsense
with swashbuckler and supernatural overtones and a jolly sense
of fun that keeps it suprisingly light on its feet even though
a bit too long.
There's far too many twists and turns to
mention and would take a good deal of fun out of things anyway.
I will say they've thrown everything into the mix but the kitchen
sink, but with great skill from the writers.
This movie delivers everything it promises.
If you want to have a great time this summer, see Pirates
of the Caribbean.
Disney has obviously run out of ideas.
This second film based on a theme park attraction runs long and
is poorly edited, but is a great swashbuckling adventure complete
with a feisty heroine, cursed pirate treasure, and over-the-top
performances by Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush.
With several scenes straight out of the
ride, it blew the competition out of the water. Why? I don't
know, it's a mystery.
It did have me craving a Monte Cristo sandwich.
This movie is based on a thrill ride amusement
It has wall-to-wall battles, chases, and
sword fighting that is mostly filmed (on or around) a Caribbean
I thought this pirate theme park picture
was fun at the start, but after 2 hours and 23 minutes, this
big ship merry-go-round left me feeling dizzy and water logged.
