Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End is not as good as it could have been and at well over 2 hours it is one very long movie.
We saw this installment of the Pirate’s movies at the Palace Westgarth Cinema in Northcote. A once beautiful theatre that has been chopped up and made into four much smaller rooms. Still beautiful the seats could have been a little more comfortable for such a long sitting. Bring back the intermission I say.
I’ve read reviews saying that there are bits of the movie that drag out, that parts of it could have been cut to improve the flow of the movie but I disagree. While some parts are slower than others, I’m not sure where cuts would have been made.
Keep an eye out for the keeper of the code and the special viewing of Captain Jack Sparrow’s mum, she’s a pretty one. The monkey and the two funny pirates are back as comic relief and continue to do a great job of it.
There’s a lot of action, a lot of swashbuckling and a little bit of love. It’s a long movie that could have been better… and while there is an opening for yet another movie I hope Disney feels it has gotten its money’s worth from a series that started as a theme park ride.
