In this case, the answer is – beyond any doubt. The director, Gore Verbinski’s inclination for logistics – combined with the producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s desire to spend like a drunken pirate with regards to putting everything on screen – dissolves into an often frenetic, colorful and entertaining comic adventure that often seems to be using “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” as a template. The dazzling, high-flying silliness is quite an accomplishment. The film is superior to anything it should be, given its origins: a ride at Disneyland and Disney World.
