dylanrose’s review published on Letterboxd:
While not technically as good as the second and leagues behind the first in the pace/writing categories, At World’s End does a really satisfying job of wrapping up the story and it really really should have just ended here (or kept Gore for the rest).
Like sure the lore is deepened to a totally absurd level, but that’s part of the charm.
This is an original franchise that was going for middle earth levels of lore here, and yes it fell far shorter than the hobbit movies (🥺), but this is an ORIGINAL franchise.
Much love to the pirate boy party movies.
