Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End 

Let’s talk about sequels.

The problem with most sequels is that characters tend to take control of the story, rather than the other way around. This is especially true if the sequel is for a movie that was a bit of a gamble in the first place, and thus the existence of the sequel was in doubt – or never even considered in the first place. So, in the first one, you’ll have vivid characters and wild ideas, thrown out there with a distinct sense of thrill, risk, and kamikaze joy. If these elements come together just right, then you have something truly special.
