The advance reviews are out for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and they are not good at all. Critics say the bloated third movie in the Pirates series, which clocks in at 15 minutes short of three mind-numbing hours, is almost impossible to follow, with a complicated plot and weird negotiations between pirates that one can’t keep track of. The special effects are amazing and well done, but they’re just not enough to carry this film, which is just as boring if not more so than the last one.
Here are some selected critic quotes via Rotten Tomatoes:
– Gene Seymour, Newsday
– Frank Swietek, One Guy’s Opinion
– Dustin Putman, TheMovieBoy.com
– Nathan Lee, The Village Voice
The film has a current 56% aggregate critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is just about the same as the second one. Dead Man’s Chest received a 54% on Rotten Tomatoes, and it still kicked ass at the box office. I’m sure this one will break records, and bore countless people, too.
Here are pictures we’ve already published from the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End which is due for release tomorrow, May 25th, in the US. Thanks to All Movie Photo.
