"The Series Lost A Bit Of Its Edges But Still Worth It"
on December 17, 2007
Who would have tought that a movie based on a Dysneyland ride who be so succesfull to the point that it would get two more sequels?Not me,that`s for sure.But after seing the first movie,"The Curse Of The Black Pearl" wich came out in 2003,i was totatly into it,it had a great story,great cast of characters and plenty of humor as well.The sequel,"Dead Man`s Chest" was just as good if not better when it was released in 2006,telling the story of Davy Jones.At the conclusion of that second film,Captain Jack Sparrow was eaten by the Kraken and the remaining crew decided to search for Jack with hopes that he was still alive somewhere.Now this is where the third chapter in the "Pirate Of The Carribean" series continues with "At World`s End".
At the end of the last movie,Captain Barbossa returned and offered a ride to those who wanted to search for Jack.Now they are gone searching for Jack,but Jack has his own problems as he must fight his personnal demons in a desert as he faces clones of him.That scene was just sort of comfusing even if it had some sort of humor in it as well.The problem with "Pirates Of The Carribbean : At World`s End" is that there are so many subplots to the point where it becomes comfusing and just crazy.The Calypso story was quite interresting but it wasn`t developped enough tought we do learn a lot about her and her relation with Davy Jones.It was in fact Calypso who broke his heart and Davy,in return locked his heart in a chest,that explains some things we didn`t quite know about.
There is also Will Turner`s desire of rescuing his father,Captain Sao Feng(Chow Yun-Fat)is a new arrival in the series(he is great in his parts but his role with all the events happening is nearly forgettable),The Will-Elizabeth relationship at the conclusion of this movie will never quite be the same.There is also the nine Pirates Lord story and there is just too much for anyone,not counting the who`s with who in the movie,as it just becomes a story of betrayal and it just makes no sense anymore.Both fans of the series and those who have never seen it.The story,as nearly every third movie in a trilogy or series is complex and can be hard to understand as it explain events in the series and the second movie,while still being a movie on its own.The actors played their parts very well and there is even an appearance by famous rock star Keith Richards,guitarist of the Rolling Stones,as Jack`s father and a funny joke between Jack and him.Being a rock`n`roll fan i found that very cool!
I expected a little better but i can say that i still knew it wouldn`t be as good as the first two.The movie has too many subplots but it does end in a great way.I don`t want to spoil the movie as this one is the most revelative and it explain a lots of things and it even sets a path for more movies in the serie.If there is going to be more movies(Depp says he would like to do some more),i hope they get better than this one,but the story set with this third installement could really make great movies if they can have a good script and have the actors return to play their roles.Overral i would have to say that this movie despites some low points,turned out to be entertaining and true to the serie with lots of twists,action and special effects.Its worth watching if you have not seen it as of yet,if you have seen the other two then this one is certainly worth it.
