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?

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.

[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.

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.

The wild, unstoppable commercial success of the Pirates franchise has freed Verbinski to spend a lot of time on flights of fancy and mythological asides.

It is not a great film, but it captures an innocence rarely seen in theaters, let alone in mega-hyped summer blockbusters.

Buoyed by luck, comedy and state-of-the-art special effects, it has not only survived the journey intact, it's also washed down its decks, ready for a whole new cycle of movies to begin.

Overlong, over-plotted and frequently dull threequel that only really gets into gear in the last forty minutes thanks to an impressively action-packed climax.

This might be a stretch considering its two hour and forty-eight minute runtime, but you'll definitely get your money's worth.

I missed the jokes and carefree spirit of the crew of the Black Pearl. I missed the simple pleasures of the walking id that is Jack bumping into the consequences of his nature. I missed the funny.

By managing to turn a Disney theme park ride into a major movie franchise, director Gore Verbinski and his collaborators, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, have done an unintentional remake of Gilliam's "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen." Gilliam did it bet

It's a fine summertime distraction, but woe to the viewer who elects to revisit it somewhere down the line.

Needless to say, it all looks and sounds absolutely fabulous, and the return of Geoffrey Rush is simply AAHRResting
