Movies: Pirates of the Caribbean 3
Thursday, 2007 May 31 - 9:49 pm
Just enjoy the ride.

I think pretty much every review I've heard or seen has said the same thing about "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End": if you actually stop caring about the plot, you'll enjoy the movie.

I mean, for a while, I was trying to piece together who was betraying whom, and how all the karma would work out in the end, and who would have a moment of revelation that changes their fate. But it just got to be too exhausting. So once I just let go and treated the movie like a, well, Disneyland ride, I enjoyed it much more. See all the buckles being swashed? Whee!

There were inexplicable plot turns. There was ridiculous overacting. There were gratuitous acrobatics. There was a significantly less-than-believable rally speech from Keira Knightley. And there was a bizarre surrealistic scene inserted in the middle... which was cool but utterly out of place. It was just a mishmash of all kinds of different things.

But it was certainly fun. It won't win many awards, but it's enough for an evening diversion with the kids.
