Just when he’s needed most, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), that witty and wily charmer of a pirate, is trapped on a sea of sand in Davy Jones’ Locker. In an increasingly shaky alliance, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) begin a desperate quest to find and rescue him. Captain Jack’s the last of the nine Pirate Lords of the Brethren Court who must come together united in one last stand to preserve the freedom-loving pirates’ way of life. From exotic Singapore, to World’s End and beyond, from Shipwreck Island, to a titanic battle, this adventure is filled with over-the-edge action, irreverent humor and seafaring myth and magic. Everything has led to this twisting, turning, wild swashbuckling ride in this final chapter of the Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy.
The final film in the Pirates trilogy is without a doubt the most exciting and visually stunning out of the previous releases. With this film, the beloved Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow, he is still lost in Davy Jones’ Locker, so Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley ), and Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) find themselves sailing to the ends of the earth to save him. And I do mean this literally!
While visually entertaining, Pirates contained many unnecessary plot twists that became entirely irrelevant within a ten minute span. There are so many new characters and it was hard to nail down exactly what was going on, who it was affecting, and why it was happening. However, if you disregard all of that, you’ll be fine! That being said, I still thoroughly enjoyed myself. I do wish that they had kept the plot a bit more toned down for this finale, but I guess they wanted to have everything on par with the grand scale of the effects and shear awesomeness of the film.
The special features certainly aren’t lacking with this release either. The special 2-disc limited edition set provides tons of extra bonus material that will give fans an inside look at the movie, how it was made, what it’s like working with Johnny Depp, all the bloopers, and so much more. It’s definitely worth checking out.
