Abstract: I would like to state emphatically, for the record, that I loved the first Pirates of the Caribbean film. Made by director-for-hire Gore Verbinski in 2003, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was a breathlessly entertaining Hollywood concoction in the finest comic-matinee tradition. It moved its wonderfully engaging and fantastical story along at mile-a-minute pace, it put its attractive cast through its paces in wry and rollicking fashion, and it never let its wonderful special effects get in the way of the terrific comic banter. How on earth the filmmakers thought they’d be able to top that lot is anyone’s guess, but in my opinion the effort to do so has been spectacularly unsuccessful.
