Review: Pirates 3
I went to see Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End the other day and thought I would share my views. As usual there are spoilers here so don’t read it if you don’t want to know what happens.
The main story sees Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann travel to the end of the world to rescue Jack Sparrow from Davy Jones’ Locker (ie. bring him back to life). They must then unite with the Pirate Lords from all over the world to bring an end to Lord Backett, who is trying to bring down the pirate world.
The plot is sometimes a little confusing. Character’s change allegiances back and forth so often you often forget who is a good guy and who is a bad guy. But the aim of the film is to try and tie up all the loose ends created by the last two installments. Unfortunately it often does this by changing rules set in the other two films. A good example is that of Davy Jones. He is only allowed to set foot on land once every ten years. How does the script get around this? By placing him in a bucket of water of course!
Although there are some annoying parts to this film it is still a great movie. Depp is as superb as ever and very, very funny. Watching him debate situations with multiple Jacks is one of the best parts of the film.
As you would expect the effects are amazing. The final battle scene, pirates vs East India Trading Co. in a whirlpool is spectacular. This goes for the creature effects too.
Overall a very enjoyable, if long, movie that is pretty essential viewing to anybody who has watched the previous ones.
