What can I say…I happen to enjoy the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. I generally go into movies with zero expectations and remember being pleasantly surprised by The Curse of the Black Pearl. It was rather entertaining with all the pirate humor, incredible scenery, and sword fighting. The 2nd, Dead Man’s Chest, was somewhat disappointing and more of an “appetizer” to setup the main dish, At World’s End.
The 3rd Pirates, and possibly not the last, was a bit long, but overall captured the fun and excitement from the original. In the same way that Keanu Reeves is Ted “Theodore” Logan, Johnny Depp is Captain Jack Sparrow.
