Overview

Director Gore Verbinski and the crew set sail once again for this, the third chapter in the swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. Captain Jack Sparrow Johnny Depp is hopelessly trapped in Davy Jones' locker after a harrowing encounter with the dreaded Kracken, and now Will Turner Orlando Bloom and Elizabeth Swann Keira Knightley must align themselves with the nefarious Captain Barbossa Geoffrey Rush if they hold out any hope of saving their old friend from a fate worse than death. The East India Trading Company and its fearsome leader, Lord Cutler Beckett Tom Hollander, have taken control of the ghostly Flying Dutchman and its captain, Davy Jones Bill Nighy, and now the baleful Admiral Norrington Jack Davenport has taken the helm in a relentless bid to destroy every pirate ship in his path and bring the Age of Piracy to a violent close. Meanwhile, Will, Elizabeth, and Captain Barbossa navigate treacherous waters and face bitter betrayal as they set sail to gather the only army that can stand up to Beckett -- The Nine Lords of the Brethren Court. But Captain Jack Sparrow is one of the lords, and as long as he's stuck in Davy Jones' locker, Beckett and his nefarious armada are sure to emerge victorious. There's still hope, however, if the heroic team that includes Tia Dalma Naomie Harris, Pintel Lee Arenberg, and Ragetti Mackenzie Crook can reach exotic Singapore and convince vulpine pirate Sao Feng Chow Yun-Fat to provide them with charts and a ship. But even the powerful Brethren Court may need a bit of help from volatile sea goddess Calypso in order to weather the coming storm. With the entire future of the pirate way at stake, everyone will be forced to choose sides while drifting precariously to the edge of the earth for one final, spectacular battle.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The producers of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End clearly wanted to end the threequel with plenty of room left for a fourth installment. But whether the prospect of expanding the franchise well beyond the borders of a trilogy inspires irritated groans or delighted applause will prove to be the most divisive issue ever to pervade a movie produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. On the one hand, Pirates 3 goes running with the tangled web of plot developments from the second movie that so many viewers found convoluted and boring. On the other hand, this film streamlines the story and brings it to fruition, providing a payoff for all that head-scratching setup we had to endure last time. It'll be clear to you within the first 20 minutes whether you're too turned off by the narrative style of Pirates 3 to dig it. However, it'll also be clear to you if the third movie's slightly retooled approach is just what you need to float your big old pirate boat. At World's End is full of the delightful, adrenaline-fueled action sequences that an adventure movie requires, but while the second film despite being a rollicking good time lost sight of its own pacing because its sword fights, chase scenes, and naval battles were a tad too long, too many, and too near-between for some tastes, this movie nails the momentum a lot better. It spaces its over-the-top excitement sparingly, giving you just a taste here and there of the high-flying action to come, until it finally lets the swords, cannons, and supernaturally conjured sea storms fly in the enthralling, well-tuned climax. There's also a fantastic sense of pirate lore in the film. The piratical world is brimming with rules and councils and procedures, with arbitrary authority and magical objects to be exploited, stolen, or misused by the brethren, whose double-crossing nature is the source of most pirate adventures in the first place. The confusing ins and outs of pirate bylaws provide a lot of humor, but those looking for a movie with a robust comedic side will be disappointed. The script for Pirates 3 isn't constructed around jokes for the most part, though there's still a healthy dose of character-driven humor. Johnny Depp, in particular, is as hilarious as he was in the first movie, but that doesn't mean that Jack Sparrow's existential crisis is over. That's one great thing about this film: the surprisingly sophisticated character development. Sparrow losing his cool because he no longer knows what he wants as illustrated by the aimless spinning of his magic "knows-what's-in-your-heart" compass passes as he realizes that he does know what he wants, he just doesn't know how to get it and still respect himself in the morning. Now, Captain Jack hallucinates a room full of Jacks talking his ear off and offering him an unflinching reflection of himself, which both forces him to think about who he is and provides Depp with the great chance to flex his bulging comic muscles. Other characters get fleshed out, too, including Keira Knightley's Elizabeth Swann, who gives up hoop skirts altogether in favor of trousers and an impressive arsenal. And Knightley plays the part with intelligence and dignity; she doesn't shriek her way through it or play her hard-fighting duties like some cute, spunky girl from a romance novel. That's actually another surprisingly exceptional element of Pirates 3: the underlying themes about women are pretty progressive. Intentional or no, it's a relief that despite all the male blustering and masculine badassery, it remains in the movie that women wield the most potent power, and that the men who seek to contain it aren't rewarded. Something to really watch out for in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is that it's a lot less kid friendly than its predecessors. Not only is there a ton of complex plot and wordy, old-fashioned dialogue that little ones just won't follow, this movie's violent themes are much more gruesome. The opening sequence, for instance, is meant to illustrate just how evil the bad guy, East India Trading Company boss-man Lord Cutler Beckett, really is, so it shows a crowd of peasants being led to the gallows, where we see nooses tightened around their necks, and their twitching feet dangling from below the planks following the drop. It's creepy and moving, and it does exactly what it's meant to for adults, but for young kids, it probably just means nightmares. Scenes like this, while not graphic, would be very conceptually disturbing for younger kids, so unfortunately for them, it might be a few years until they can watch what could, for all its faults, quite possibly become an adventure classic for all time.

    Stick to the first movie, please

    I really liked the first movie and the second movie, but the third one was just disapointing. The plot was so hard to follow that it gave me a headache trying to figure out what was going on. I wish the film's makers gave it a more simple plot. There were some scenes that I thought didn't need to be included such as the first scene when all of the pirates were singing as they were about to be hanged. What was the point in that? The Singapore scene(s) were gloomy. They should have made that a lot cleaner. It was also comfusing. In Davy Jones' locker were Jack Sparrow was, I didn't get why all those crabs would be there. so much of the dialogue is implied to the viewers--much referring to the last two movies. The plot twists and turns and at the end of the movie, you have to think "What's the point of the movie when it ends like this?"
    In all the middle of the action, Will and Elizabeth are struggling with their love, and there is just not enough time in the (rather long) movie for their romance--it's all "Blow up their ship!" and whatnot. I LOVE Orlando and Keira and the movie would be sooooo much better if it had a little more romance and less fighting fishy looking things.
    In conclusion, I say skip At World's End and watch the first two instead. don't waste your money

    I LOVE POTC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am probably POTC's biggest fan!! I LOVE this movie! I would give it 100 stars if I could!! I don't know how anybody could say that they did not like it. I cannot pick a favorite out of the three. I LOVE them all! I have watched the movie fifty times, and will NEVER get tired of it. I like all the bonus materal. It shows how much work they put into everything.....especially the acting, stunts, and special effects for the maelstrom. This is definately one of my FAVORITE movies. Also, when you watch this, don't stop the movie when the end credits come on; there is a surprise scene after them that I did not notice until recently. I can't wait until part four(On Stranger Tides) comes out!! I am sad though that Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly will not be in it. At least Johnny Depp will still be doing it though. I am happy about that! I will definitely go to see it the day it comes to theaters. I LOVE POTC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    don't understand the popularity

    When I saw the first one, I thought it was going to be bad but was pleasantly surprsied. The second one was bad. The third one is simply terrible. I struggled to make it to the end. I will never understand the popularity of this trilogy. Don't throw away hours out of your life.

    Not what I expected

    I had such high expectations for this movie after I enjoyed the first and second ones so much, but I was impressed with this one. The movie to me seemed too long and just needed to be cut much shorter. I thought it was good, but the length led to my disinterest. I also didnt like the ending with Will being the new captain of the Flying Dutchman. The movie was good, but not nearly as good as the first.

    I Loved It So Much!!

    I think it was better than the 1 and 2 one. the only thing is you would have to see the first two movies to get most of it. I loved how they kept the same main characters in it and only added a few new ones. Even a the new ones ended up dying at the end. It is a must see for everyone.

    Flawed, but still way cool

    I have a hard time with the writers of a film series bringing a character back from the dead. However, this is what they did in my near-most favorite movie series. This was a flaw, as was the ending of the film, which took me completely by surprise but doesn't make entire sense. Quite frankly, where the second 'Pirates' was very supernatural-oriented, this third installment is off-the-wall. But there are scenes in this movie, particularly the final battle, that make this movie so enjoyable. While it did not conclude the trilogy in an entirely satisfying manner for me, it was fun and downright cool enough to buy, and see the behind-the-scenes bonus features.

    Only okay, but fun

    The ending won't make you as angry as the second movie did. I think this is a bit weaker than the other two movies and the portrayal of what Davey Jone's locker is like was a confusing mess. The scene with Keith Richards was fun but I think the story got a bit out of control, much like Disney's animated movies. Like many trilogies, the original was the best in many ways.

    This movie was awesome! The plot of this particular movie was much different than the first two ... a reason that many people have given for the dislike of this movie. I, however, feel like it was a nice change of pace. All three are great ... but this one was awesome! I can't wait to purchase it and watch it over and over, as I have the previous two.

    I am one of the biggest Pirates of the Caribbean fans out there, and I was nervous going to see the third one because I was worried it wouldn't turn out as AMAZING as the other two, but that was SO AWEsome!!! I saw it so, so many times in theatres, and can not wait for the DVD on December 4th! Everyone included in these films was OUTSTANDING, and deserve millions and millions of awards.
