The first 3 and a half hours weren’t too bad. Watching Geoffrey Rush reprise his role as Barbosa was great. Otherwise I felt the movie was just spreading itself way too thin. Captain Jack was just too flat of a character, and just felt more like a prop throughout the movie. He just never had enough camera time to do anything interesting at all and just never lived to the expectation of what Captain Jack is. The whole William and Elizabeth part of the movie was clouded by the fact that they were on screen together for no more than 5 minutes throughout the movie. The story itself was also terribly flawed it really felt like the writers ran out of ideas and decided to fill in by making Tia Dalma a goddess. And in a pathetic attempt to keep the end from being a typical happy ending, making the rule that if you kill Davey Jones you become him was just stupid. The whole tragic ending with Will coming back as the new Davey just doesn’t sit well. If you want to have a tragic ending make it tragic, bittersweet simply doesn’t work. Ever.
If my rant seems disjointed I blame it on being 5 in the morning.
It has a guy for a squid with a head, and people are surprised that it is not a “good movie”?
In that case, you guys might want to avoid Hard Rock Zombies, wherein a metal band is resurrected to kill Zombie Hitler, his werewolf consort, and their family of evil, nazi freaks. Turns out it’s not a “good movie” either.
