Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Any time cinemaphiles like me complain about the studios spending fortunes on the stars and the effects but inexplicably skimping on the script, we're longing for movies like this, where the writers, director, and even the actors were given the time they needed to make it good. I think I would have enjoyed it more if the trailers hadn't spoiled the whole thing for me, but I can't ignore its craft, nor the true weirdness that Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush relish bringing to their parts.
