Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End ★★★

Absolutely looks and behaves like the most expensive movie ever made. In a lot of ways not dissimilar to TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION (though almost certainly less culturally and psychically poisonous). Completely gorgeous, insanely, pridefully bloated, and mostly a baffling ordeal. By the time the massive, nearly 40-minute long climax is climaxing you won't really know who's fighting who or for what, but at this point in the franchise I feel like you gotta listen to the sage wisdom of AIRPLANE!: "They bought their tickets; they knew what they were getting into."
