Out of all the Pirates films this one is the most middle of the road.
I should say that I do like the second film quite a bit before going any further. Now then, this film fits right in the middle of franchise being better than 3 and 4 but worse than 1 and 2. I don’t think this helps in any way as the result is just plain borrrrrrrrrring, only two things of real consequence really happens. Those being Barbossa’s sudden Daughter and his then death (which as the only time I actually felt some sore of investment in the franchise since two). There would have been a third, that being the end of all curses ever with the destruction of the Trident of Poseidon, but it is walked back after the credits with an appearance by Davy Jones.
The music is great, that has been a staple of the series and is still great even now. The acting (for the most part) is great too. It look real nice to top it off, par one scene where the use of green or blue screen was extremely clear. A problem I have had with this franchise for a while is its use of Jack, in the first movie he is quite smart and cunning but over the course of 5 movies he has become an idiot drunkard who bumble’s his way through everything. It just erks me that he is basically a different character than what he started out as.
There was this really creepy looking de-aging of Depp in the movie, dunno what it was about it but I just didn’t like it. The main plot of the movie inolv……. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz………
Oh, whoops I seemed to of nodded off there. Oh well the plot is dull and is inconsequential just like this (sorta) review.
Well, untill next time….
