Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

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

i have a love-hate relationship with this movie AKA 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Part 2' there's so much that i really do genuinely adore about it, like you could give me any random quote and there's a 95% percent chance that i could tell you the next three lines, but there's also a lot of wasted potential

The Good:
- Lavish set pieces, costumes, locations. No expense spared.
- The maelstrom end-battle is fucking insane.
- KEIRA KNIGHTLEY
- fuckin character development is ON POINT.
- these first three films are Elizabeth's story and we've seen her go from distressing damsel, to pirate, and finally in this film to KING... i am all about it
- the marriage scene is so !!!!!
- Will Turner rescuing Bootstrap side-plot is pushed to the background of the film. Took up way too much time in Dead Man's Chest.

The Bad:
- Questionable CGI in the multiple jack's scenes.
- ORLANDO BLOOM i love you my beautiful but untalented fave... i'm not being funny but the fucking monkey gives a more entertaining performance
- Elizabeth and Jack don't get together???? wtf all that build up and sexual tension and innuendo between them in the previous film is just never addressed... like... okay then???
- Convoluted heavy exposition throughout that casual viewers literally will not care about... Like, the DVD comes with a fucking FAQ leaflet explaining everything that went over people's heads.
- The Multiple Jacks sequences
- WAY too many characters introduced too late

The UGLY:
- FUCK YOU GORE VERBINSKI NO WAY DOES ELIZABETH END UP BACK ON LAND AND PREGNANT JUST WAITING AROUND FOR WILL FOR 10 YEARS... NO.
