Early Report: Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End
The good people over at AICN have received what looks to be the first screening report for Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End. Reading through the report I couldn't necessarily tell if the reviewer thought the movie was good or not. Fortunately, there are a few snippets that stand out and suggest positive feelings.
“World’s End” ties up the story started in “Chest.” Instead of long, pointless action pieces like the ‘natives’ in “Chest,” all of the action, all of the subplots are all pieces to the puzzle. It could’ve stood to lose 30 minutes or so, but for the most part, it was enjoyable. It doesn’t stand up to the first but it surpasses the second.
Keith Richard’s role as the possible father to Depp’s Jack Sparrow has been buzzed about ever since Depp told reporters that he was channeling the ‘Rolling Stone.’
I am happy to say that Richards is by far the best addition to the franchise since Nighy as Davy Jones. He was funny, but never over the top. I’m not going to spoil whether he is or isn’t Jack’s father. This small mystery shouldn’t be spoiled for fans of Richard’s.
The action sequences and special effects are far superior to those of “Chest’s.” It does seem to retain a little bit of the spirit of “Black Pearl”...
OK, so the remarks posted above are obviously positive. Check out the entire report for the reviewers full impressions on At Worlds End.
For those of you wondering how long At Worlds End could be, I believe its official running time is 167 minutes.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End now opens to theatres on May 24th.
