Pirates of the Caribbean

 

 

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 park attraction.

It has wall-to-wall battles, chases, and sword fighting that is mostly filmed (on or around) a Caribbean island.

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.
