My review of the Pirates of the Caribbean films

My review of the Pirates of the Caribbean films

Pirates of the Caribbean Curse of the Black Pearl: Wow I’m impressed that they made a movie based on a lame Disney ride. The plot is this a group of pirates are looking for pieces of gold to help them get out of there dilemma, then the pirates kidnaps a character name Elizabeth who has what they are looking for. Meanwhile another character name Will Tuner goes out of sea to rescue her from the pirates while the help of another pirate name Jack Sparrow.
I’m sorry Captain Jack Sparrow. This film is a good piece of entertainment, I don’t understand why this was released in December this looks like a summer movie. I like the Elizabeth character because she isn’t a damsel in distress. I also like the Jack Sparrow character he is a fun character. The problems I have with this movie are the editing and who is the main character, I mean I can’t tell if Jack or Will is the main because this film centers on both characters. If you are looking for a fun movie this is it.
Rating = Worth Seeing

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man’s Chest: The plot is this Will and Elizabeth are arrested for what they did in the previous film, if they want the charges to drop Will has to find Captain Jack Sparrow the reason why makes no sense. Meanwhile Captain Jack Sparrow is trying to get out of a dilemma with Davy Jones/ squid face; he does this by finding the dead man’s chest. What in the chest why does Jack need it, sorry you have to watch the movie to find out. I didn’t think this movie was as bad as people claim to be, I mean there are things in this movie that made it salvageable just barely. The problem with this film is the plot is complex, like there was one plot point where jack and his crew where on an island that felt like time filler. I didn’t think this film has a dark tone; there is a different between having a dark tone and dark atmosphere. The secondary villain in this film is lame he comes off as a spoiled brat; I wish we had more back story about him. So yeah this is a lame sequel however it’s not unwatchable, it has some of the entertainment value that the first film had.

Pirates of the Caribbean at world’s end: What is this, what did I just watch? This isn’t a movie about Pirates this is a stab a thon. I’m sorry I’m getting ahead of myself. This film is about Will, Elizabeth and Jack’s crew tried to get Captain Jack Sparrow back from Squid face’s locker for reasons that are contrived. That it that’s all I have to say about this movie because nothing much happen after that. This movie suffered from what a lot of third movies suffered from that is too much stuff going on. I rather watch a montage of someone playing Halo 3 and betraying other players. That’s all that happened after they rescued Jack until the last act. The only thing at stake in this film affects the pirates in a bad way. OK what bothered me about that is that the movie tried to make the pirates victims. Why? I mean there Pirates whatever happens to them they deserve it, just because we find the Pirates entertain that doesn’t mean we should be rooting from them. What really bothered me about this movie is they bring back a character that die in the first film what gives? Hollywood this is a movie not a Soap Opera. Also Hollywood I’m tired of y’all pulling the getting famous actor or actress in the movie to sell it, but doesn’t sever much of a purpose in the film trick. I’m talking about Mr. Fat and Mr. Richard’s roles in this movie they have none. The only good thing I can say about this movie is got a few laughs. If you’re going to watch this movie you need to be drunk or high or on meth, because that is the only way you’re going to make sense out of this movie because there are some brain dead moments in this film. This was one of the worst films I have seen in 2007.

Rating = Trash

Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides: This film centers on Captain Jack Sparrow who goes on a journey to find the fountain of young, meanwhile there are others looking for the fountain of young including Blackbeard the villain of this movie. Basically this is Rat Race and the Goonies rolled into one movie, however the adventure aspect of the film was not as good as the Goonies. I will give this movie credit for going back to the first film as far as giving us a simple plot, the problem is that it's dumb the fountain of young is not what you think it is. There was a subplot in this movie that I didn't care for, it's there to replace the two characters that's not in this movie. I have mixed feelings about mermaids being in this movie, because there were reference in the first film but we haven't seen them til now. The villain Blackbeard is kind of a stiff, the actor playing him might as well be sleep walking. There are some dark moments in the film that might scare kids, like there is a scary scene that looks like it was made for 3D. Then again this films aren't for kids anyway. This movie wasn't terrible it's just lame, I don't think it's unwatchable there are some entertainment value in this film.

Rating = Rental
