Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
Really liked the first one, hated the second one, and sort of liked this one. Johnny Depp returns as Jack Sparrow, and Keith Richards makes a cameo as his daddy. There’s a lot going on in this chapter—perhaps too much—but there’s plenty of fun to be had, as well. Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), the villain from the first film, returns as a good guy this time. He sets out on a journey to Davy Jones’ Locker to rescue Sparrow from death, with Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, unfortunately, in tow. Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) also returns for the action, and his tentacle face is in fine form. The movie is a little too long, and some of the plot threads are hard to follow. Still, the action is great, and the finale is a great kicker. Depp says he would return for more adventures of Jack Sparrow. I, for one, have had enough. It doesn’t need to go any further than this trilogy.
