Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End Reviews
Running at around three (!) hours 'At world's end' pads out to an extreme degree what would other wise have been handled quite easily by anyone else. That isn't to say the film isn't enjoyable, far from it the movie, much like the second is rather good fun, the CGI work is on par, if not marginally improved over the previous effort. Even Orlando Bloom seems to be making real progression towards being a competent actor.
However the 'wedding' scene (which is eerily reminiscent of metal gear solid 4) is possibly one of the most vile scenes ever committed to celluloid and loses the film points on sheer cringe worthy horror alone. Taken as a whole, even with the needless bloat the second and third films almost reach the same level of thrills and fun as the original. Albeit with none of the originality. But then scenes like the aforementioned wedding remind you and Gore Verbinsky that this isn't The Return of the King, and the 26 endings are not at all necessary.
It's clearly the weakest of the three, with an unnecessarily complicated plot, a bloated running time and some aspects of the story that simply don't make sense, but it still manages to be entertaining and fun. The production design and visuals are stunning as usual, and the final battle doesn't disappoint; serving as a fitting, if slightly disappointing final chapter. Or so we thought...
Jonny Depp , Orlando Bloom , Keira Knightly
Are good in this movie as well!!
