Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Sparrow is Back

If you loved the first two movies, you’re going to love this one, and for good reason. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End eschews the problems that plagued Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and continues to deliver the swashbuckling action and comedy that won over fans and doubters alike when Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl burst on the scene a few years ago. Director Gore Verbinski wonderfully mixes comedy, action and drama, and gives each character something special to do. If you like Orlando Bloom, Will Turner has some special moments. If you love Johnny Depp, he has even more special moments to make the audience swoon for the lovable rogue (who's loveable when you look like Johnny Depp). Even the monkey has a few chances to steal the spotlight (and prove he is the true star of the movie). It’s a film that appeals to everyone’s fans in a way that fits within the story, even if Verbinski allows the tone to get a bit too campy in spots. However, he more than makes up for it in the 30 – 45 minute long climactic battle scene that combines special effects, solid acting and some laughs to make this movie one of the best of the summer.

All of the characters we love are back, but it’s the monkey who should be demanding $20 million to do a sequel! Sure, you might want Johnny Depp back, but that monkey has got the charisma! He’s a star!

Keira Knightley is back as Elizabeth Swann – the daughter of a well-to-do British governor (Jonathan Pryce), who has become a sexy tough lady pirate. She and her somewhat spurned lover/fiancée, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), have joined forces with their one-time nemesis, Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), and the mysterious mystic, Tia (Naomi Harris), to make a voyage to the other world, also known as Davy Jones’ Locker, where they hope to find Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). The evil Lord Beckett (Tom Hollander) has ordered the extermination of all pirates, and Sparrow is needed to save pirates everywhere.

Can Elizabeth, Will and Barbossa find Sparrow? Why is he the key to saving all of the pirates? Can Will and Elizabeth patch up their relationship and finally get married? What is everyone’s real motivation? How cool will Keith Richards be in this movie?

This movie provides no good moment to sneak off to the bathroom, so get the small soda, but be warned. This movie has one of those Lord of the Rings: Return of the King multiple ending endings that makes you think its time to get out of the seat, but puts your booty back in position as yet another scene is unfurled (mostly to set up what will likely be the sequel). - WaffleMovies.com
