Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Source: Catholic News Service
Generally listless third leg of blockbuster voyage has Elizabeth (Keira Knightley), Will (Orlando Bloom) and Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) bringing Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) back from the dead before leading a rainbow coalition of pirates against the tyrannical forces of the East India Company. Evidently director Gore Verbinski and crew ran out of cinematic provisions while making this talky, mirth-free installment; its splintered story line and lack of swashbuckling action suggest fatigue, which allowed the creative equivalent of scurvy to set in. Recurring action-adventure violence and peril, including hangings and characters run through with swords; fondling and kissing of a bare female leg; suggestive humor and innuendo; voodoo incantations; and a crude expression. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
