There was a time when a pirate was free to make his own way in the world. But our time is coming to an end.
The world isn’t big enough for the East India Trading Company — and pirates. One has to go. And it might just depend on who has enough wits, gunpowder, codes, love, loyalty, power and secrets.
Whoever doesn’t will get blown out of the water. Literally.
How far will they go to win?
To stab the heart of Davy Jones? To betray those who gave you their trust? To bring back those from death itself? Or will they just throw every rule, every code, out the window and do whatever it takes to get what they want?
Considering they’re pirates…take the last option.
In My Opinion…
My Rating: 3 Stars
If you look past the confusing, muddy, at least five (if not six) fold story line, you get left with a movie that’s good for a few laughs, a single clap for the visual effects, and lot of puzzled “what-just-happened-again?”
After a stunning first movie, an interesting second, the third really needed some tightening up before it hit the screens. The plots are so detailed, and so numerous, you get left feeling dizzy. Who just made a deal with who for what purpose? It’s the constant question. The dialogue is rather random, though with Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa again clashing sword blades, there’s room for a few laughs. Being a third, you expect a lot. The movie fell short (by a few hundred metres) of that expectation.
The sets and visual effects were again brilliant, entertaining to see and full of life (though a few left trails of question on their historical accuracy). There’s enough sword fights, blowing ships up, drama, cannons, guns and action to keep a person alive (no sleeping), though authenticity is a bit lacking. But it is an adventure fantasy movie after all. Some of the humour feels forced. Everyone spends their time preforming confusing plot movements that are undoubtedly invaluable — but you’re not quite sure why they’re doing them. Still, if you liked the first two, it’s worth the watch. Even if it’s just one watch.
In one word: Confusing.
They obviously had a handful of stories that the first two movies had created, and all story lines needed to be tied off. They did that, but at the cost of losing a huge chunk of fans. It seems to take forever to get anywhere and it’s hard to keep up with the rapid changes in the different character’s agendas. But they are pirates after all.
You can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest.
