Just watched Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End: It’s not bad. Why isn’t it as good as the song and dance (and marketing) made it out to be? Because it was too damn long.
By the end I was bored of seeing Jonny Depp swinging around yet more rigging. I was bored of the multiple double crossings that was happening because they are “pirates – yarr”. And I was bored of far too much CGI.
Over 2 and half hours is too long for a throw-away franchise movie like the PotC movies are.
With the main characters being killed off at the rate of about 1 every half hour I thought this would be the last one, but no, they left it open for a 4th…
