Tagline: At the End of the World, the Adventure Begins
Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action/adventure violence and some frightening images.
This is the third part after The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) and The Dead Man’s Chest (2006).
I love this one because it’s a Disney production and and and… it’s a Jerry Bruckheimer film! Muwahaha. As if it makes sense.
On a serious note.. I love the movie from beginning till the end. [ Although, I still think Part II, Dead Man’s Chest is funnier ]
I kinda like the sad beginning where the kid who was about to be executed sang a song known by pirates titled Hoist the Colours and then it lead to Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) singing the same song while rowing at a canal in Singapore to meet up with other pirate’s as well. The first part was to bring Jack Sparrow back from Davy Jone’s Locker which is not easy to bring back unlike Captain Barbossa since both his body and soul was taken with him.
There are a lot of interesting characters in this movie as well since the world’s pirates gathered for a meeting of their brotherhood known as the Brethren Court, that consisted of nine (Sao Feng, Barbossa, Jack, and other pirates of different races African, Arab and Indian) pirate lords. Jack’s father who is/was King of the Brethren Court made his appearance at the meeting as well, and he sure acts funny like Jack.. now you know where Jack got his attitude. Muwahaha.
Whenever Jack Sparrow is around so much trickery is involved…. and it’s quite evident that pirates rarely trusts anyone and if they do they have an agreement where both of them gets something in the end. Even though, they’ve had good bonds with fighting they can still trick each other over something which I’ve come to known as a pirate trait they all have inside them. Although, there are a couple of loyalists and that would be the crew who can stick with you for some time but not the captains.
The same funny crew of the Black Pearl is present, like Pintel and Ragetti [ the one with the wooden eye ] who both acted as a comic relief during the movie’s more intense scenes and they were known to provide storyline information. Without them, Pirates of the Carribean would beee boring! I also like the monkey and the parrot… great acting mumuy [an endearment for monkey!]!
I found the proposing and getting married of Will (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth [ Keira Knightley ] while fighting the enemies really unique.
All in all the movie was great and ended just fine even though it was a bit hanging in the end.. hay but nevertheless the whole of it was pretty good.
