linkWill Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) are allied with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) in a desperate quest to free Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from his mind-bending trap in Davy Jones' locker, while the terrifying ghost ship, The Flying Dutchman and Davy Jones, under the control of the East India Trading Company, wreaks havoc across the Seven Seas. Navigating through treachery, betrayal and wild waters, they must forge their way to exotic Singapore and confront the cunning Chinese Pirate Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fat). Now headed beyond the very ends of the earth, each must ultimately choose a side in a final, titanic battle, as not only their lives and fortunes, but the entire future of the freedom-loving Pirate way, hangs in the balance.
Just so you have an idea of where I stand in the Pirates Trilogy...the 2nd one is my favorite, then comes the first and finally comes the new one.
I went to the first showing in my town tonight....along with about 1,200 of my closest friends The overall consensus from my screening room was that there were lots of jump the shark moments in the movie.
The fighting was great and I can stare at Orlando and Johnny forever and be happy with just seeing them, but the actual movie was a let down of sorts.
They did leave it wide open for a 4th movie.
