2007 tried to say sorry for releasing the worst movie ever in theaters with another Pirates movie that didn't even get to ARR us back. At World's End suffered with Dead Man's Chest.

We continue to be roused... but, unfortunately, not positively enough. The best part is, perhaps, Keith Richards as father to our beloved Capt. Jack Sparrow. Guess they should've given him more screen time.

It is a very long and quite complex movie, but still I enjoyed it. I just like the series and still thought it had all the great qualities of the first two. I suggest watching it twice before making a final judgement.

If you didn't much care for the previous parts of "The Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, I don't think you should see this. Then again, if you are a fan, this is definitely a treat for you - although of a different kind than you may haveIf you didn't much care for the previous parts of "The Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, I don't think you should see this. Then again, if you are a fan, this is definitely a treat for you - although of a different kind than you may have hoped.

Much different than the earlier movies.

The plotting gets ahead of the viewer at times, and there are more... bizarre elements.

The beginning is different than you may have expected, but don't feel discouraged by that. Keep watching. The movie doesn't get boring, even if some of the fighting scenes are drawn out and a lot harder to follow than in the previous movies. The style just isn't the same anymore. Something is missing; the clarity and style that defined the movie in "The Curse of the Black Pearl", and which they still held onto in "Dead Man's Chest".

Special note towards Orlando Bloom's Will: he was a total surprise in this movie, even if the end wasn't as shocking as it could be. His story and struggle were far more interesting to me than the rest of the stuff going on.

There were hints suggesting towards the end of the movie thrown around during the course of the movie, but you do not recognize them before the end. Also, a special attention should be paid attention to the sword that Will made in the first movie; it resurfaces. The end of the movie is very nicely solved! My applauses for that - and deepest thanks for not ruining it with the traditional "heroes win it all".

Ye have been warned!

On another note, there were some really bad aspects to this movie: Jack's "hallucinations" in the Locker were totally ridiculous, in my opinion; that is my least favorite part in the whole trilogy. To the same category falls the scene with Calypso in her own form, which just... well, it didn't work, which is such a waste, but it was definitely better than Jack with his dozen versions that don't really make sense. Elizabeth was still disappointing. Suddenly she has grown into a pirate, with all the traits, and I just like her less and less every time I see her, sorry. The way they try to force comedy into some scenes, overdoing it at the same time, didn't work either. It would seem that the magic of the Caribbean is slowly fading... but not completely.

I enjoyed the film more than its predecessor, which was over-melodramatic and monotonous. But the corny love stories are oddly tepid, and it results in the same monotonous sojourn it's predecessor gave. But Johnny Depp made up for everything

As the pirateThis third installment continues the last adventure of Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner as they, along with the resurrected Barbossa, try to find Jack Sparrow, who got killed in the last movie and is now in the land of the dead. As the pirate ships plan to release the goddess Calypso, Davy Jones's lover, the crew seek the help of Sao Feng and all of the pirate lords and must fight for their final stand against Beckett, Jones, Norrington, the Flying Dutchman and East India Trading Company while also finding Will Turner's father as well.

(sigh) What?! I only missed two of the sequels to a great movie? UGH! Oh, well. Now to get to my opinion. Like the previous movie, it's not as good as the first.

The dialogue was bad (again), The storytelling was rushed (again), and the storyline was very tiresome. That's it for the bad.

The good things are: The actors did very well at their performances, The CGI was even more cooler, The action was way more better, and the cinematography was a lot of fun.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End may not be one of the best movies of 2007, but like the second installment, it is also a worthy follow up to a great movie with strong performances and fond farewells to Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley.

There is a lot going on in the third instalment of this hugely successful franchise, and the final one of the continuing story from the the second entry. While still not capturing or even replicating the original, but it is mountains betterThere is a lot going on in the third instalment of this hugely successful franchise, and the final one of the continuing story from the the second entry. While still not capturing or even replicating the original, but it is mountains better than the Dead Man's Chest, and while you can't really miss a single minute for fear completely losing your place in this often puzzling and densely populated film, it is still very long, much longer than it should have been.
There is a lot to keep up with but after the climax of the original film, a crew sets out to rescue Jack from Davy Jones Locker, a place of nothing, to be punished, as expanded cast member Tia Dalma (Naomi Harris) outlines. But also afoot is the attempt to call the Brethren court, a pirate organisation made of all pirate lords to bring about the end of the East India Trading Company's rain of terror across the seas, led by their new pet Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), whose heart is owned by said company, hence his actions.
Captain Jack, meanwhile, mentally rots away as he wonders exactly where he is and if the things going on around him are truly real, his comical and whimsical attitude is again excellently performed through Johnny Depp, his character has indeed stood the test of the three films, and he is the most enjoyable thing to look forward to in this.
With that thought, there is again a lot of pointless and time-consuming elements of the film that contribute little to the cause, and with the continuing mutiny and rebellious nature of both Elizabeth Swan and Will Turner make it difficult give any sort of sympathy towards them. Their heightening love story within the film is distracting and too much emphasis is placed upon it, deterring from the more enjoyable aspects.
It is Jack and the returning Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbosa that truly maintain the flashes of greatness from the original, Jack and his long conversations with himself, or Barbosa and his typical pirate nature, mix that in with a plot that although complex, does give the incentive to watch over again.
As visuals go, this is a true spectacle in front of you, beautiful, marvellous and a delight to the eyes, the final battle in particular is breathtaking, ships, pirates and storms galore. Effects an marvels don't get much bigger than this, combined with an impressive score.
Not as captivating as the original, quite lengthy with many unnecessary moments and the same goes for characters, but certainly better than the second with an impressive finale, epic set pieces characters staying true to their roots and continuing powerful performances from Depp, Rush and Nighy, oh and a cameo from a particular Rolling Stone, make this quite a worthwhile and explosive third showing.

It might not be one of the best Pirates of the Caribbean movies ever, but it's an highly entertaining and exiting movie with cool scenes that just are stunning.

Positive arguments:
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End got a great story, and the movie itself is very well made, and sometimes I even got stunned on how great this movie is made. It also contains some spectacular things that I haven't seen in movies before, and from my point of view is that one of the most important thing in all movies. The film have a good beginning and ending, even thought the beginning could have had a higher tempo. The actors thought, couldn't have been more awesome as they are, and I'm still fascinated by Johnny Depp's weird acting, and I really enjoy him!

Negative arguments:
The first bad thing I noticed in this movie is the beginning, it didn't have an exiting start, and the movie overall felt a little lengthy at some places. Another bad thing is that sometimes the movie felt a little silly, and I'm really disappointed in the music in this movie, because it wasn't that thrilling in comparison of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The tempo might have been a little higher because it felt a little lengthy a some places, but it also felt a little confusing sometimes.

Overall is this a spectacular movie, but it got some big mistakes, and it feels like that Disney is slowly loosing the touch of these movies. But I really recommend this movie for everyone, because it's a great movie!

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End gets a 7/10

An improvement on the second movie, but still not as good as the first one.

As usual, effect are top notch, story is far more interesting this time round, yet also feels like more of the same at the same time.

Knightly has perhaps the most interesting character as she really has changed allot since the first movie. I really did like seeing that development. Bloom is boring and very hard to sympathize with, aside from the end where he does grow a little. Depp is just doing yet another fantastic Jack Sparrow.

Overall: At World's End was good. It had allot of flaws but most were forgivable. An Epic finish to this chapter of the PotC franchise.

Firefly, the newly appointed President of Freedonia, declares it so simpleThe Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy, which reaches its conclusion with the nearly three-hour At World's End. When presented with a treasury report, Groucho's Rufus T. Firefly, the newly appointed President of Freedonia, declares it so simple that even a 4-year-old child could understand it. "Now run out and find me a 4-year-old child," he says. "I can't make head or tail of it." As a consequence of trying to turn a theme-park ride into a 463-minute trilogy, the Pirates movies are freighted by so much convoluted mythology and supernatural hoo-hah that perhaps only the very young can understand their dream logic. The last, longest, and most tedious of the bunch, At World's End sags under reams of exposition that not only fail to clarify the story, but take away from the slapstick tomfoolery that made the first film (and a couple of sequences in the second) escapist fun.

Picking up where the second entry, Dead Man's Chest, left off, the new film finds bland heroes Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley teaming up with the once-dastardly Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) to find Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow, who's trapped in Davy Jones' locker. Here's where things get confusing: Bloom and the gang must first go through Singapore to get a special navigational map from Chinese pirate Chow Yun-Fat, who's one of several pirate lords who must unite in order to secure pirate freedom in the Seven Seas. (There's also some business about a "Brethren Of The Coast," and the "nine pieces of eight," but let's not get ahead of ourselves.) Meanwhile, the East India Trading Company has possession of Davy Jones' beating heart and has brought Jones and his Flying Dutchman ship into its quest to eradicate pirate-kind. And then there's Sparrow, whose predicament has left him with several metaphysical manifestations.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy—and At World's End especially—stands as a lesson in the perils in blockbuster filmmaking: What started out as a fleet one-off swashbuckler with novel supernatural elements has become loaded and graceless, with each new entry barreling across the goal line like William "The Refrigerator" Perry. The franchise's two chief assets—the surprise of Depp's swishy pirate and Gore Verbinski's dexterity at directing slapstick action sequences—have been eclipsed by expository scenes that confuse even more deeply in their attempt to clear things up. Should the franchise warrant still another sequel, the dialogue might as well be in Esperanto.

The last 60 minutes offer adventure as rousing as anything provided in either of the previous installments, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Unfortunately, that doesn't account for the other 108 minutes of this gorged, self-indulgent, and uneven production. During the course of nearly two hours of exposition and setup, there's little in the way of charm or action. There are memorable moments, to be sure, but the overwhelming sense is that the film is desperately spinning its wheels trying to shock and awe with unexpected plot developments.

As an end to a trilogy, At World's End does its job, although with less flair and economy than one might hope. It resolves myriad subplots and gets the surviving characters to places where their stories can end or go on, as future sequels demand. Like the other two entries in the series, it's too long and needlessly convoluted. The movie is also more ponderous than the previous Pirates. The defining quality of Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest was a sense of breezy fun. This movie lacks the same feel. Perhaps it’s the weight of expectations and the need to top what went before. The thrilling final hour is almost enough to make one forget how much of a labor it is to trudge through the first two-thirds - almost, but not quite.

At World's End doesn't blend the humor and the derring-do as well as its predecessors. For the most part, the jokes are lazier and Cap'n Jack has lost some of his zing. Maybe it has something to do with his being killed at the end of the last movie. Geoffrey Rush's Barbossa is more restrained; the intimidation factor is gone. Maybe it has something to do with his being resurrected at the end of the last movie. The on-again/off-again love affair between Will and Elizabeth is on again (following her brief dalliance with Jack) and, while sparks don't fly, at least both characters evidence more pizzazz this time 'round. Meanwhile, Cap'n Jack finds his screen time leeched away to others. A late entrance and too may extraneous side-stories take the focus off our swishy hero, and that's not a good thing.

As far as the bad guys are concerned, they're not an intimidating bunch. Without his Kraken, Davy Jones is just another fishy looking CGI creature. As Cutler Beckett, Tom Hollander does a good job being nasty, but one never gets the impression that he'll be able to get the better of Jack. Defining other villains could be misleading since numerous characters changes sides, some more than once. At times, a scorecard is needed to figure who's on which team at any given time.

The need to make longer, more busy second sequels is an undesirable trend. By throwing so much into the mix, the filmmakers - including director Gore Verbinski, who has helmed all three pirate yarns - risk losing what attracted viewers in the first place. The initial Pirates was an unexpected hit. The need to do things bigger and more spectacular led to fissures in Dead Man's Chest. Those fissures have widened and deepened in At World's End.

Most Pirates aficionados won't complain (at least not too much). This is a chance to re-visit old friends and see where some of their stories end. It's a chance to sail with Cap'n Jack from death to life and meet his dad (played, as has been reported everywhere, by Keith Richards). The movie does enough things right that it won't leave scores of despondent fans in its wake. Unfortunately, it does enough things wrong to keep me from giving it a wholehearted recommendation. It could have been better, but it also could have been worse.
