As epic summer movies go, At World's End was pretty good. But don't try to make sense of anything, or you may suffer an aneurysm.

Just how much are you willing to forgive Johnny Depp and that sea-dog swagger of his?

While it fails in matching the unpredictable excitement of the original, this is more of what I'd want in Pirates sequels. Just a little less of it.

If nothing else, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End's ambition and moral ambiguity still set it apart from the pack, but as a send off to the trilogy it staggers across the finish line more than winning out right.

Another piddling blockbuster with delusions of 'darkness'

[Verbinski] borrows from a half-dozen mythologies to construct a fitting punishment for the culture of narcissism, compulsive consumption, and greed that makes movies like this one necessary.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is a hearty, bumpy sea marathon. For some, it will be a fun ride; for others, it will be an ordeal. I'm somewhere in between.

Ho-hum, ho-hum - it's the same old bilge again!

A few laughs, some fantastic CGI and a great cameo from Keith Richards aside, this is turgid and tiresome.

Both sequels to the original film are confusing and long. But the third does improve on the second, because at least something happens.

At World's End's greatest sin, just like the second film, is that it forgets to be fun.

It's unlikely many fans will have the patience to sit through this soulless, yet visually enticing voyage to nowhere more than once.

Although visually impressive, At World's End is a bitter disappointment considering how fresh and exciting the crew was just a few years ago.

Not for the logically minded or the seasick prone, the film, like its two predecessors, is a dizzing concoction of multiple simultaneous stories taking place either in the real world or anybody's unhinged imagination, take your pick.

For a long time -- although definitely not all the way to the interminable finale of this whale of a nautical exercise -- you're likely to enjoy what you'll see

Swashbuckling action, but too many puzzling plots.

When it hits, it is absolutely the best of the three films, but when it misses, it is endlessly tedious.

Yo ho ho and a bottle of regulations!...has the soul of a three-hour U.N. committee meeting. Gods' bodkins, me hearties, this movie blows like a whale from the vasty deep.

POTC: At World's End strives for epic-ness, but it's not an epic. It's fluff. And fluff should never, ever exceed more than 1 hour and 47 minutes, including end credits.
