Basically everything was like the first movie only more/bigger. There was more comedy, more romance, more action and yes, unfortunately, more gore. The performances by the actors were, as expected, superb and the visual effects were pretty darn good. All in all it was a great movie.
Things I didn’t particularly like.
The biggest thing I disliked would have to be the gore. There was one scene in the beginning with crows plucking out a guy’s eyes. There just wasn’t any need for that. I also felt that the whole movie was to dark and just plain weird, kind of like a horror film, but on the other hand that’s what I thought of the first movie the first time I saw it. But then once you get over the weirdness of it you start to really enjoy the absolute hilariousness.
Favorite things about the movie.
My favorite thing in the movie would have to be the sword fight. Imagine two guys fighting on a moving wheel that was rolling through the jungle. Now imagine that instead of two men fighting there are three, all fighting individually. It was hysterical. I also loved how they carried several jokes over. Another good part is when Elizabeth throws a tantrum when the three men start to fight. She even tries her good old fainting trick, but to no avail.
One of the good things about Pirates is you know that all the characters have to make it out alright… NOT. This movie has a shocking ending of betrayal. Pirates is an absolute cant miss movie.
