The movie starts off with a rather grim intro. Just when you think a hero will get involved they don't. It seems as though the world is doing everything to get rid of pirates. As the journey begins we are then reintroduced to all the wonderful actors that have been involved in this series.
For the pirates to continue on they need their ultimate hero, Captain Jack Sparrow. Although this movie is filled with an all star cast that can't just rely on the heroic antics of Sparrow. I would have to say this movie is filled with action and a lot of violence although not a lot of gore. The movie probably would not be good for small children. So saying this movie is for families is probably a misnomer.
What sets this version apart from the DVD version is the beautiful picture quality and wonderful sound. I was totally impressed with the breath taking picture in this film. Watching it on a big screen t.v. makes it very worthwhile. The movie also comes with uncompressed sound which helps create a lifelike environment that you can only find in the theatres.
In the end I would have to say this movie is not for everyone. The action is non-stop and the violence is continuous. If you haven't watched the other two movies you probably shouldn't view this first since there are a lot of details in the story you wouldn't know otherwise. This is a great film that should be viewed by everyone who has enjoyed the series.
Part of the problem is that everything about this film is simply too big. The number of new characters alone is quite distracting, especially since they all make important contributions to the story. The subplots are piled on top of each other, resulting in a film that's needlessly complicated and overly energized. I'd be hard pressed to give a decent synopsis, because in all honestly, I'm not sure I caught on to everything. From what I can gather, it seems that the instigator of this new story is Tia Dalma (Naomi Harris), the mysterious voodoo woman responsible for Barbossa's resurrection (which, in my opinion, was explained far too casually). Apparently, he's one of the nine pirate lords, and the time has come for them to join forces against the elusive (but undeniably evil) East India Trading Company, now under the control of the dastardly Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander).Read more ›
In this movie, Lord Cutler continues to try to scour Pirates from the open seas. Elizabeth's Swan's father is tricked with disastrous consequences, Jack returns from the dead, and Will Turner tries to save his dad without putting Elizabeth in danger. There is romance in this movie, which I greatly enjoyed, but it is far from a mushy film. Violence, love, pirates, it's the perfect movie formula.
China has censored some of the movie in its country because it "vilifies the Chinese." Chow Yun-Fat, who plays pirate lord Captain Sao Feng, had his role slashed because the long, dirty nails and hair is stereotypical antiChinese. Ha! I think China is being too concerned, the movie does not make any nation look like the worst pirate place of the world. There is a definite focus on China/Asia for part of the movie, but what do you expect with a Chinese character. It's a fanciful movie, not racist.
If you, like me, refused to watch the movie without knowing how the Jack-Elizabeth-Will love tangle would end up, I recommend going to Wikipeida and searching for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
By the way, this movie leaves definite room for a sequel. Maybe a Pirates 4 lies in the future....
