I saw it and I thought it could've been a lot shorter. It was way too long and that took away from the suspense of catching up with the mystery ship.
Like that scene where they stopped of at the Galapagops Islands to see the fauna.
That was unnnecessary.
Subplot of the cowardly kid who jumped overboard.
Too many subplots took away from the main story.
I did like the part where they sailed around the tip of South America. That was cool.
All in all, I thought Pirates of the Carribean was a BETTER seafaring movie. Even tho it was a bit of fantasy, thedre were factual places and
For example, there WAS a smuggler's island called Tortuga in the Carribean. There was such a code called "Parley" amongst the pirates.Women were
regarded as bad luck on a ship. And others. What was not factual was that pirates buried their treasure. But, for Captain Kidd, they were too busy
spending their treasure on booze and whores to bother burying it.
(See, I'm reading the biography of the pirate, Captain Kidd, and it is awesome. Captain Kidd was the man---even tho he didn't deserve the nefarious
reputation he had based upon lies.)
