Ahoy there matie... !!!!

"Fifteen men on the dead man's chest--

Drink and the devil had done for the rest--

Dead Man's Chest

Had the oppotunity to watch this one last Saturday...

I hate anti-climatical endings in movies...... why does Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) has to face such an invetiable end, leaving the audience to speculate for another year or two... especially with the sudden appearance of Geoffery Rush at the end of the screening... reprising his role as the rather undead undead (if you know what I mean) he still after that dang cursed Aztec gold again???

And what's the deal with the Black Pearl, Sparrow's beloved ship whom he had commanded for 13 years...and then, nothing more can be said about the impending conjugation between Will Tuner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), which in my opinion is overcast by Elizabeth's abrupt attraction to Sparrow.

The only trully character driven member of the entire movie was Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), whom I thought played a really convincing 'grim reaper' sort of soul collector, commanding a submersible ship with a host of undead, sea-life-assimilated hands on deck (which I thought was very Alice-The-Wonderlandnish)... not too shabby for a villain...suffice to say... a vivid departure from the norm...

Suppose this is ala Matrix Trilogy... the writer's attempt to expand the epic into a 3 parter... with the tail end leaving a trail of suspect and dubiousness in all. Seems to me that the Black Pearl saga should have been canned in the Curse of the Black Pearl...because it seems rather wasteful to have that infamous 3-mast ship ploughing the oceans for over a decade and playing the vessel to dead pirates... only to be destroyed by the almighty Kraken in this instalment (something akin to the creature from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea)...

All in all, the humour was satisfactory, though rather cliched at was refreshing to see the lights of 'Bootstrap' Bill Turner (Stellan SkarsgÄrd), Will Turner's father...but nonetheless, this movie boasts a continuing and hopefully, concluding end to the Sparrow chronicles...

Question... if there be pirates... where is the looting and plundering???
