PotC III was one of the worst films I've ever seen
The production values were enormous - I admit I never saw the join. There were a few good moments of comedy, but the film was THREE HOURS LONG! A film has to be pretty special if it's going to be over 2 hours, but there was nothing SPECIAL about PotC III and plenty to dislike. There was a plot, but it kept getting lost in the meandering storyline. The longer a film goes on the less I can forgive the bad bits.
I will say one thing. Johnny Depp was better in PotC III than Tim Burton's intriguing, but fail-ful Alice in Wonderland. The Red Queen and the bandersnatch were about the best performances and I never 'got' the cinematography. All cinematographers need to watch The Blues Brothers multiple times. It has the best camera-work I've seen, really adding to the mood of the scene and amplifying the characters.
Finally: the Brits aren't always the bad guys!!!!
