While it remains a visual treat and fun action sequences a plenty, AWE has a an overcomplex, lazy script and a lack of focus that makes this 3 hour epic a long, tedious viewing effort.

This third and final (hopefully) travel with Captain Sparrow and Mr. Turner takes us on a journey that well would have seemed impossible or out of character when the first pirates came out. Despite that imagination, At Worlds End delivered on what you expect from this movie: witty dialogue and action. There was more drama this time around, and well the whole marriage scene was just dumb. Despite that, this was a great way to end the series and was a hell of alot better than the first movie (Spiderman 3) of the trilogy summer that is upon us.

Just a poor Will Turner.

Having found the first film perfectly enjoyable and the second film damn entertaining, I have to say I was enormously disappointed by "At World's End". This belongs in the same room as "Quantum of Solace" and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull". It is dreary, joyless, overly long, and quite exhausting to watch. All the charm and sense of joy that made the previous two passable are gone, in fact, it opens with a grim and highly inappropriate hanging sequence. WHAT THE #%$&!?!? I was never gripped by the action, the characters seemed to be miserable and exhausted as hell, and I was just bored all the way through. It's a disappointment.

Does it take the mythology too far? Yeah, probably. Is it too over-the-top? Maybe. But I actually enjoyed this movie much more than the sequel. The action is breathtaking, and the chemistry between the lead cast is definitely still there, but it doesn't regain the magic of the first installment. Even so, it's a big, loud, noisy fantasy movie that never doubts itself, and never apologizes. Also, the final act in the maelstrom was an absolute spectacle, and the creation of that sequence is totally fascinating.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End has a plot that's all over the place, but it eventually finds its footing, and it still has the action and humor fans have come to expect.

Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's end comes ridiculously close to being a fitting finale for the trilogy, but is sadly dragged kicking and screaming under the waves by the sheer bloat of a needlessly convoluted storyline.

Running at around three (!) hours 'At world's end' pads out to an extreme degree what would other wise have been handled quite easily by anyone else. That isn't to say the film isn't enjoyable, far from it the movie, much like the second is rather good fun, the CGI work is on par, if not marginally improved over the previous effort. Even Orlando Bloom seems to be making real progression towards being a competent actor.

However the 'wedding' scene (which is eerily reminiscent of metal gear solid 4) is possibly one of the most vile scenes ever committed to celluloid and loses the film points on sheer cringe worthy horror alone. Taken as a whole, even with the needless bloat the second and third films almost reach the same level of thrills and fun as the original. Albeit with none of the originality. But then scenes like the aforementioned wedding remind you and Gore Verbinsky that this isn't The Return of the King, and the 26 endings are not at all necessary.

Verbinski has certainly nailed down his visual style but at nearly 3 hours this feels over long and filled with excessive amounts of comic relief.
Grade: C+

Bigger doesn't always mean better - as is the case with Pirates 3, which continues aimlessly where the second instalment left off. Despite fantastic CGI & production design (which have been the only real constants throughout the trilogy), the story has clearly not been thought through, resulting in a good looking but pointless & sprawling waste of 3 hours. Under a more experienced & prolific director this could have been a decent series of films.

More scatered and unfocused than its previous installments, but amped up on the action side a bit more, however "Pirates Of The Caribbean: At Worlds End" still feels rather unpleasing.

The plot is confusing and told in a messy way however the action is entertaining and has the best final act/battle of the pirates of the carribean franchise

Grade - C+
It's clearly the weakest of the three, with an unnecessarily complicated plot, a bloated running time and some aspects of the story that simply don't make sense, but it still manages to be entertaining and fun. The production design and visuals are stunning as usual, and the final battle doesn't disappoint; serving as a fitting, if slightly disappointing final chapter. Or so we thought...

It's a pretty fun movie and has a lot of spectacular visuals, but over all it was a huge mess.
½ February 12, 2017
3.5/5. Way too long and bloated. It really should have been split in to two movies. That said, At World's End still has a lot of fun and exciting moments, but not nearly as good as the first two movies.

Better than the second one.

Jack sparrow is ready for another fight and he teams up with Barbosa to fight Davy Jones and Jack sparrow and Davy Jones are good fighters with swords. And how intense this movie can be! So see the movie! The fighting was good and it gets intense with the fighting, now will Jack beat David Jones and win? See what will happen!

Jonny Depp , Orlando Bloom , Keira Knightly

Are good in this movie as well!!

There is alot to dislike about this film, but there is also a great deal to love, particularly the thrillingly executed action sequences.

The last, probably, Pirates of the Caribbean with Elizabeth Turner (née Swann) and it did not disappoint. It was interesting, like the others, and had some great scenes! I like this movie!
