The third film in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series released in 2007.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is a rollicking voyage in the same spirit of the two earlier Pirates films, yet far darker in spots (and nearly three hours to boot). The action, largely revolving around a pirate alliance against the ruthless … see full wiki

The most important thing to know about the Pirates of the Caribbean movies before going to see one is they are not popcorn movies, at least not in the common sense of the word. They are great special effects festivals, that's for sure; but they also require your undivided attention to know what's going on. (Especially the last two.) So if you're looking for something fun and mindless to rob you of two hours while you stuff your face and enjoy an AC set on the "arctic blast" setting, Jessica Alba …

I have decided to rewrite this review now that I have seen the first two movies, and may I say, this film isn't all bad. It's not as good as the first, but of the same quality as Dead Man's Chest. The main problems associated with this film are that it has too many characters, too many subplots, and is too damn long. It also leaves too many unanswered questions (especially regarding Will and Elizabeth) that I know won't be answered in On Stranger Tides because Keira and Orlando …

Great use of surreal visualizations in this film. Also could not forget Keith Richard's as dad to Johnny Depp.

I liked the first two movies of the Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy [Blu-ray], I thought Pirates of the Caribbean - At World's End (Widescreen Edition) was a weak finale. The special effects are superb and acting is decent. Johnny Depp still steals the show and has some great lines. However, the plot is extremely convoluted and comes close to being ridiculous. Some parts are just boring, like the search into Davy Jone's locker - with the ship sailing upside-down and an invasion of crabs. I've watched …

Poor follow-up that falls flat due to a weak plot that fails to tie up loose ends, too much innuendo and relies on weird, misplaced humor.

The first Pirates movie was superbly well written and directed, capturing all the major elements of a theme park ride and somehow weaving them into a compelling story. The writers (Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio) balanced a range of elements that everyone wanted to see, the casting was great (except the ever-abysmal Keira Knightley) and Gore Verbinski gave the whole thing a really interesting look. Since pirate films have been death in theaters for years (Cutthroat Island took both Renny Harlin and …

As I mentioned before, Pirates of the Caribbean had two sequels, filmed at the same time.  The third film is something of the biggest in the series, yet it is also a film that will sometimes make you question just what the second film was there for, and at the same time wondering if perhaps Disney was a ltitle too self-indulgent and overreaching.  The second film was sloppy but still fun.  Despite having very little story or plot involved.  The third film has a ton of story …

We own the whole collection of Pirates movies. In my opinion the first is the best. This was probaly my least favorite of the series. However it's still a good movie. I highly recommend Blu-Ray instead of DVD. The picture is fantastic, you won't regret it. I noticed someone else said the movie had issues playing on a PS3, that is what we use to pay our movies and we have had no problems.

The first POTC harkened back to the mid 20th century, during an era where studios pinned their hopes on grand adventure movies with romance, action and comedy spliced in as needed. The second POTC was pure comedy, hilarious, nonsensical and ridiculous as only Disney can be and still be funny. This third and final installment of POTC is deadly serious. With less comedy and less romance than the previous two, At World's End is really a drama with episodes of comedy, adventure and suspense added in. …

Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), and the rest of the pirates are on a quest to bring Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) back from the land of the dead. Their journey is greatly been hampered because Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) is in possession of Davy Jones' heart and controls the seas, making himself and the East India Trading Company extremely wealthy and supreme commander of the world's waterways. With world domination in sight, Beckett wants to wipe out the last …

There is a daring scene early on in "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" that has lingered with me for the past few hours. Elizabeth Swann, William Turner, and the recently resurrected Captain Barbossa are sailing the dangerous waters of World's End. They do not know where they are going, but they happen upon the entrance to death a couple hours after being lost. Barbosa laughs with triumph, though Elizabeth doesn't quite get how they managed to find the entrance without the map. Barbossa …

Pros: Depp     Cons: Lousy Plot, tediously long run time, paper thin characters.     The Bottom Line: Wait for a rental on this one.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) returns in "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End", the third film in the series which has set box office records the world over. Picking up shortly after the events of the previous film, "Dead …
