Ahoy, mateys! I have to tell you something; I had fun watching this movie! Seriously, this movie just made my day and I feel like I wanna watch it again. Sure, not everyone likes swashbuckling pirates adventures and silly movie. But sometimes I am easily amused and entertained. And don't forget; the hotness of being a pirate! Arrrrr...
Bootstrap Bill (Stellan Skarsgård) is telling Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) that he owes blood debt to un-dead Captain Davy Jones (Bill Nighy). Tia Dalma (Naomi Harris) says that the only way to save his life is to get the dead man's chest contains Davy Jones' still beating heart. Meanwhile Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) ruins the wedding day of Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) and Will (Orlando Bloom) and arresting them for letting Jack escaped. In order to save their lives from death sentence, they have to get Jack's compass and Davy Jones' heart. Everyone now is in the game of cat and mouse, which everyone is betraying everyone. Directed by Gore Verbinski. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
The movie itself is very energetic, and the cast are wonderful. I love the script because it's very creative, and I wish I could make one like this. The setting is great, with various unforgettable characters. Every characters seem have their own storylines, even the minor ones! I laughed everytime Jack walks and talks his way outta trouble. He's a lovable cunning man. Well, hello! He's a pirate! And I like the idea that every characters from the previous movie are coming back. Seriously, I thought I died and gone to heaven. I liked the first movie, so when the characters are back, I was so happy. Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow as always is funny and entertaining, and sometimes he shows a rare emotion. Jack Davenport is so sexy as a pirate in this movie! Hahaha. I like how he kick some ass! And I love that everyone seems get major screen times. My favorite scene was when everyone trying to get to the mysterious chest and running away from the pirates, while the others were having sword fights!
Sure, not many people enjoyed it. My friends said it was too long and too much. The storyline gets confusing and complex, with so many characters it feels overcrowded. I can't argue with that. I do feel the storyline could be toned down with just Jack, Elizabeth, and Will. But they have to put EVERYONE there; Norrington (Jack Davenport), Governor Swann (Jonathan Pryce), Pintel (Lee Arenberg), Ragetti (MacKenzie Crook), Gibbs (Kevin McNally), Cotton (David Bailey), Marty (Martin Klebba) and even Captain Barbarossa (Geoffrey Rush)! And the movie is to be continued, so they ended it abruptly. But it's fun nonetheless, and I thought it's funnier than the original. It's silly, it's big, it's slapstick, it's old-school, it's overwhelming, and yohoho; I like it! By the way, the creature Kraken is awesome! Makes me wanna think again about eating Calamari, hahaha. I think this movie is fun like Indiana Jones and Lord of The Rings. I guess Gore Verbinski is being prepped by Jerry Bruckheimer. Goodbye, Michael Bay. Overall, I recommend this for those who likes silly adventure movies. Those who have short attention span, please avoid it.
