just maddeningly unhelpful
"Pirates of the Caribbean - At World's End”  (and why do I feel a duty to watch the third one just becuase I saw the first two?)
002Sparrow.jpg

The key of the big hit (at least) in Japan has been no doubt the pirate Jack Sparrow. He first appeared in the movie standing proudly on a mast, but as the camera zooms out, you see that actually whole ship had already sank and mast is the only thing left that he could hang onto. Then Sparrow, who seems not a slightly disturbed, hops onto the deck, leaving the mast to dissapear into the sea. What an impressive way to appear... But Jack Sparrow could have been a much plainer character if it were not for Depp who acted it.
It's not easy to explain why Sparrow is so attactive. He is not particularly good-natured (maybe good-looking), nor particularly smart (maybe tricky), nor particularly brave (maybe reckless) – usually a character with such adjective is not so popular.
(spoilers are typed in white)

As for the story, I must say I had difficulty catching up with the scenario – especially this third one. One reason is I partly forgot what happened in series one & two, but even if I didn’t, I’m not sure I got the whole picture. Am I only the one who feels the same way when you get lost during playing RPG…? I don’t know what the characters are aiming to do, or what their next target is, who they are intending to see, or who is on which ship… Since there are no simple “good” & “bad” teams, or in other words, it's kind of like a fight of egoists, I’m at lost who is on which side.
And I think Sparrow appealed so much he's kind of driven away from the main stream as the episode goes on. You know, the first episode gave a strong impression as "Movie of Sparrow" but the third one is more like a interlinked story of various characters, fighting and betraying for what they desire.  Sao Feng was also surprisingly quick to dissapear from the screen... Here I would like to present the common saying in Japansese : deru kui wa utareru - Stand out from the crowd and you just invite trouble for yourself.

I didn’t least expect the lovers (oh god, I couldn’t even remember their names…) to end that way, not that I don’t like the story. But I find Mrs. Turner (oh yeah, that’s it) as the most frightening character which let all the men die who kissed her. And what is more, she doesn’t show slightest sign of age after 10 years. Amazing.
