Brian: I think the best quote from the movie was “Does he have a plan, or is he just making this up as he goes along?”
Me: Are you talking about Jack Sparrow or the scriptwriter?
Between the double-triple-quadruple crosses, it was hard to see who was plotting against whom, and what their true motives might be. Speaking of plots, there might have been one in there, but one would need a treasure map or magic compass to find it. Pirates of the Caribbean 3 – At World’s End, is a convoluted mess.
It’s entertaining, and there are many buckles to be swashed, but it’s a very, very long movie. This outing of Pirates struck me as being even more violent than the first two, if that’s possible. You get a feel for this within the first few minutes as a young boy is hanged for piracy. Sure, there are witty quips and bits of comedy, but they are hard-pressed to overcome the dark mood of the movie.
I’m still not sure if I liked it. I think I will need to see it at least one more time before passing judgement.
