Pirates of the Carribean-Review




Well obviously I caught this on Friday.
Same time as Bantutu...better luck next time..please you actually thought you could beat the TATO to watching it before.
So we waited and here it was. Bigger and grander than ever. As I had expected it a lot of fun and big explosions, spectacular visual effects..pure Bruckheimer/Verbinsky tag team. As in... whatever you were looking for ..it was there...they went all out..perhaps a little overboard!

Loved it Loved Loved it...however...a few disappointers were present. In fact at one point I even dozed off.( I am so embarrased and ashamed and so so so sorry...!)

1. It was too too too saturated in terms of storylines. They introduced to many things ...too many subplots that should have been dealt with from the very beginning-not introducing things now! What seemed or should have been an end to a trilogy became the beginning of something else! Calypto? 9pirates? What the... A few stunts they pulled that I did not like...Like Jack and his endless personalities...

2.In its supersaturation it became unseemingly too long


But its a definite must see...the characters are all back in their glory ...and each with their own story!

Ha Bantuts likes ati the Proposal amidst the fighting(Told you I'd sell you out) ... sentimental fool! I on the other hand still like that idea of being so heartbroken by love you rip out your heart so that you never hurt like that again.

I will try to find time in my 'busy' schedule. Can I ask a question? Ok, that is one already, anyway, can I take a date or is it better if I go alone or with a guy, like you went with Bantu?

Watched it this weekend and loved it, but again I am a fan therefore very biased.
The action was breathtaking and the characters as humerous as ever. It was a bit long and it took very long before we saw Jack when his big nose made an entrance.
I hope it ends here Pirates 4 would just dilute what is a great story, Disney should be satisfied with the rides.

Been avoiding this until i caught it myself. I agree with you kabisa (how???). Sort of disappointing and convulated. Too many story lines. Too long to get Jack in and then he's loony - lots of time wasted when there should have been hilarious action sequences. I didn't find Jack as hilarious as before and I expected something more spectacular from Calypto than RATS!!! But still a good watch. And yep, it was too long (which in my books = a tad boring since akina LOTR were long but who noticed?). Nough said.
