About 10 years ago, a groundbreaking film emerged called The Matrix. Sci-Fi film with good ideas, interesting storyline, very good action and of course a milestone set in film-making with Bullet Time. Everyone who loved The Matrix awaited the film's sequels in hope that there'd be a new Holy Trilogy on the horizon.
So what did they do? They threw money at 2 films, forgot about plot, added some sex, and got too really poor sequels made.
Pirates, I'm disappointed to say, has taken the same road. Curse of The Black Pearl was something different, and what a refreshing performance from the best actor around Johnny Depp. It was a fun film, very enjoyable and took us by surprise.
They have now ruined whatever legacy there could've been with 2 very bad sequels. At Worlds End is very bad, I even stopped laughing at Jack Sparrow, they seemed to be making everything up as they went along. It wasn't as funny, or action packed as the first. The non-existing, hard to follow plot was awful. You didn't know who was on who's side, what was going on, what was supposed to be achieved and I'd love to know if the actor's did.
Very disappointing, very sad state of affairs...welcome to Hollywood. Pants.
