1 The worst film I have ever seen.farnzy | 18/07/2007 | See all farnzy's reviews (164)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Let's get one thing straight, unlike Mark Kermode I'm a great fan of the previous films, especially the first. They are funny, inventive, and witty.Let's get another thing straight, the single biggest crime that any film can commit is to bore the hell out of it's audience. A serious related filmic crime is when a movie is self-indulgent and loses all sense of it's purpose. I don't mind a film even if it's terrible-as long as I'm entertained in some fashion. To see what I mean watch S.S. Doomtrooper-appalling in every sense; effects, acting, script-but I was never bored.World's End is dreary beyond belief. Not just dreary but so self-important it thinks it can import Holocaust imagery into it's opening sequence. Worse still said imagery (piles of clothing and personal possessions of the executed) is not even totally relevant to the rest of the film and is reduced to a bit part in a frankly horrendous song and dance routine Mel Brooks would have been ashamed of.The remaing four years worth of film is a hotch-potch of so called "ingenious" double, tripple, and quadruple crossing which amounts to tedium beyond belief. Chow-Yun-Fat might just as well not be in the film, there's some Calypso bird doing god-knows-what, and the two wet-weekends-Bloom and Knightley getting married whilst a half-hearted battle "thunders" around them-terrible. Now if you had Pitt and Jolie doing that seen they may have pulled it off (see their banter in Mr and Mrs Smith for evidence) but we have the two worst examples of Richard Curtis' middle class hell instead.The final battle could have been it's saving grace, a magnificent clash of 100s of ships, but Verbinski bottles it. He prefered to spend time and effort on the ridiculous scenes of Depp in his own hell-pointless, useless and deeply unfunny.And what a tragedy about Captain Jack? Set to become one of the most enduring creations of recent years-reduced to not obtaining a single laugh throughout this maritime marathon of pure hell.As you can see from my other reviews I rarely write in the first person, but for this basket case, the gloves are off. I hope people will see sense and vote positive as this is the biggest rip off since The Matrix. Don't blind yourself to this crime, don't put up with it, don't accept this utter drivel.I have a feeling I'll regret this rant.
