Captain Barbossa, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann must sail off the edge of the map, navigate treachery and betrayal, and make their final alliances for one last decisive battle.
Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) are allied with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) in a desperate quest to free Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from his mind-bending trap in Davy Jones' locker, while the terrifying ghost ship, The Flying Dutchman and Davy Jones, under the control of the East India Trading Company, wreaks havoc across the Seven Seas. Navigating through treachery, betrayal and wild waters, they must forge their way to exotic Singapore and confront the cunning Chinese Pirate Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fat). Now headed beyond the very ends of the earth, each must ultimately choose a side in a final, titanic battle, as not only their lives and fortunes, but the entire future of the freedom-loving Pirate way, hangs in the balance.
Much like the second Pirates of the Caribbean movie, the story took a while to get going and it wasn't nearly as good as the first movie. However, 'tis a fun ride nonetheless! All the characters are back and with a 168 minute running-time, this is the longest movie of them all. The action sequences are entertaining, but a bit too heavy on the CGI (you can practically see the green screens, which made several scenes look very cheesy and fake). In addition, there are several major scenes and story elements that were incredibly silly and felt very out-of-place with the rest of the movie (and the rest of the trilogy), such as the "Braveheart" inspired pep speech, the wedding scene and several others that I won't dare spoil here. Those issues aside, overall "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" is a fun popcorn movie. It's sure to entertain and it'll be drawing huge crowds and audience participation for some time, so it's well worth seeing once or twice on the big-screen.
In the third installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean," It has become a dark time as the age of Piracy nears to a close. Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) of The East India Company has gained control of the terrifying ghost ship, The Flying Dutchman and its malevolent vengeful captain, Davy Jones (Bill Nighy). The Dutchman now roams the seven seas, unstoppable, destroying pirate ships without mercy, under the command of Admiral Norrington (Jack Davenport). So we find our heroes Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) allied with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) in a desperate quest to free Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from his mind-bending trap in Davy Jones' locker -- Navigating through treachery, betrayal and wild waters, they must forge their way to exotic Singapore and confront the cunning Chinese Pirate Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fat). Now headed beyond the very ends of the earth, each must ultimately choose a side in a final, titanic battle -- as not only their lives and fortunes, but the entire future of the freedom-loving Pirate way, hangs in the balance.
As I sat thru this 3 hour movie with excitement and enthusiasm I just enjoyed the journey that is Pirates. With the exception of two scenes that I thought were kind of out of place, (the freedom speech…It was right out of "Braveheart" and the wedding scene…kind of cheesy) Other than that the movie was really well done. A very good ending to the Pirate franchise, the ship battles were awesome, and the things that needed to be done with the special effects were really cool. I really enjoyed the movie overall, the cinematography was great and the mix of live action and CGI was extremely well done. The cameo of Keith Richards was for me really exciting, he did a good job with the few lines he had.
Overall Rating: 3.5 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: High (Yes I will buy on DVD.)
