My wife fell asleep in the first half hour, then she grumbled all the way home. She cursed me if Pirates 4 comes out, a sequel which is likely to Bloom if one considers the ending. Here's a case where special effects stun us and then numb us. Perhaps the video-addicted generation can handle hour after hour of special effects at the expense of a strong storyline. There did not seem to be some big question that required an answer. All we were asked to do is to suspend our disbelief and enjoy the special effects. Too many times the elocution was unintelligible. I could not get involved with the action when I could not understand what actors were mumbling. Again my 50+ status probably is to blame. The actors also did not seem energized in the roles-seemed like they were walking through roles that they created years before and moved comfortably through scenes. Pick up the pace in the non-fighting scenes was needed. The one credit that I have to give is I was never bored at any time throughout the three hours. I might have been saying, 'dah, ' but I never yawned or did the head whiplash. If anyone can tell me about the purpose of the peanut sequences, I would be eternally grateful. Enjoy the Disney ride!!!
