My review of Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End?
It’s way too long, way too boring, and there’s just not enough Jack Sparrow to make it likable. The last twenty minutes or so are fantastic, but by that point I just wanted the movie to end, as I’d been sitting there bored out of my mind for nearly three hours. I can distinctly tell you about 40 minutes that could have been cut out and not been a detriment to the story whatsoever, and that’s without even thinking about it.
To tell you the truth, I have no idea what really happened through about 60% of the movie. The storyline was convoluted and drawn out, and the whole Calypso thing confused me greatly.
It’s a shame, too. I enjoyed the first movie greatly, but the second two titles in the series were lacking in a bunch of ways, and this is by far the worst. I know they’re going to come back for a fourth flick, and they’d better pick up the ball and trim down the running time, or I’ll be waiting for it to hit on DVD instead of seeing it in the theater.
