I saw it on the weekend with Ori and I must say that I didn’t like it.
The last 30 minutes are great. One kick arse battle scene. And I kept being astonished by how good the special effects were.
But I was still expecting more. I mean, other than create a whirlpool, what role did Calypso play? I was hoping for some God like wrath.
I also got very tired with Captain Jack Sparrows irritating eccentricties. They seemed more forced this time, more played for laugh. Yeah, I loved him sniffing for the peanut at the beginning, but other then that Capt Sparrow comes off as an unsymapthetic nutter.
I thought Geoffery Rush was great. I thought Keira Knightley looked great but struggles to act. Her rallying speech on the Pearl to the Pirates lacked any sort of oomph. Orlando was Orlando.
I did love, however, the guy playing Beckett. Pure evil. And his death scene was probably one of the best directed scenes in the film.
I expected more from Pirates 3. But all I saw was a plodding film with lots of flashes and bangs but with bugger all substance.
