Well I've never till now not understood the plot of a Disney film. Summer blockbuster number two and its another let down,
yes you heard it right, its another long, overdrawn, cgi, complicated mess. They're just all the same these days, the effects are impressive, yes, but the plot is so out there I couldn't keep up. Everybody is doublecrossing everybody, you HAVE to know the story for the last two films very well to keep up. Things happen which aren't explained, people just appear in places and get out of situations without proper reason or explaination and why its so long I'll never know, about 2hrs 45min for christs sake, why? this is no epic, frankly its garbage.
The acting is boring and hammy, Depp is now just unfunny and quite stupid, the first film he was funny and original now its too much, the rest are all OTT. One typical modern day example of films is the usual over the top, dumb action fight sequence near the end which has Knightly, Bloom and Rush massacring all the baddies without blinking an eye, in usual high kicking stupidity, and getting Rush to marry them in the process, whilst exterminating everybody single handedly without breaking a sweat, I know this is a young persons fun movie but come on....why must we see these ridiculous scenes which frankly make you laugh and cringe with embarrassment. They always go overboard with everything nowadays and they just cant leave it alone at one decent flick or at the most maybe two.
Dont get over excited about Keith Richards cameo, it lasts about 4mins and is utterly pointless with no reason for it atall, and he's rubbish, I thought he was suppose to be drunk, high and fun all the time?? came across very dull. Nighy is quite good and his effects are great, he's the best thing in the last two films for me, but his crew only seems to consist of about six men. Chow Yun Fat is badly underused, I was thinking we would see some martial arts play or some cool eastern sword skills, he is after all ice cool, but there's nothing, there isn't much action anywhere really until the end, where its just silly as usual.
