Posts about Geoffrey Rush
Just got done with Pirates 5 after about 3 or 4 years and was majorly disappointed once again. However, there were a few bright spots with Rush's performance being a big one. Rush is as good as he was in movies 1,3 and 4. Obviously with age your physical peak declines and sometimes Barbossa looked a bit goofy, especially with the exaggerated getup and all. But I have no issues with Rush who give a committed performance.
Especially compared to Depp as Sparrow who completely squandered the job. I sympathize with Depp as he was facing personal issues bts, but it is unfortunate that Sparrow's image has been trnished a bit due to movie 5 and his performance. It looked more like Mad Hatter than Jack Sparrow.
But Rush was fab. The ending and his death was uninspired and came out of nowhere, but at least Rush got a moment to make an impact on the audience one final time, cheap as it was.
