His: Not a great sequal, barely manages to be a good one. The movie does a lot of what the first did, offering little that is new. The action is in the end and the film is a half hour too long. Jonny Depp is great, but just doing the samething again. The film, like most mid films in a trilogy, is dark, which sapps the energy and fun out of what you got in the first one. The special effects are first rate, but dont save the film from being a dark, funless, retread. Gets barely a smirk from me.
Her: (smacks husband upside head) Ok here's the REAL story behind this movie. It is a very fun movie, that you can watch over and over again. True it is not the classic that the first one became, but it still makes you wanna know what is going to happen in the 3rd film. Most trilogies are like this. My husband SHOULD KNOW THAT! The 2nd film is always the base work, look at Indiana Jones, the 2nd one was stupid...but the 3rd one rocked. Who knows what will happen with this story. The thing about POC is it is an original story, it wasn't adapted by a book like Lord of the Rings. Everything you see on screen is new and fresh. My husband needs to get over himself. It gets a big SMILE from me.
