So I saw “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” last night with the wife and Beth. Without giving anything away, I’ll just say that I liked the movie but I was the only one in my group that did. This one was much more metaphysical than the previous two, and with only two real action scenes, this movie has enough intrigue, magic, betrayal, pirate history and tension to choke a Kraken. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. It was interesting to see Jack Sparrow’s version of Hell; and I really enjoyed the meeting of the Pirate Brotherhood, but even I was itching for just one more sword fight.
There is a sense of sorrow that influences the movie. It is the end of the Age of Piracy and I could feel that throughout. The ending reflected that and I was prepared for it. My companions were not and I think it’s why they didn’t like it.
Stick around for after the credits. There is a final scene you’ll want to see.
