Near the beginning of the film, when Will is brought in in shackles, Gov. Swann appears with nothing in his hands and demands the guards to stand down. Cutler Beckett hands him the first warrant - the one allegedly for Will - and suddenly Gov. Swann already has a warrant in his hand. As the scene continues, he has anywhere between three and four pieces of paper in his hand for the two warrants. (This error may be related to the fact that in the script Beckett had several lines of dialogue cut from the final film, explaining his appointment to Port Royal, for which the extraneous papers may be related.)

This movie has everything a good blockbuster should have: star cast, special effects, a healthy dose of drama, romance, a villain (so to say), sadly also a rather weak story, with an ending just calling for "part three" (just like the last second in the Matrix trilogy) I didn't get that feeling, that the adventure is finished somehow, more like a soap opera ending. On the other hand some dialogs are really funny, and the whole movie is more like a parody on pirates.
All and all: go and see this, sit down in that cinema and have a good time with friends, but if you are more into "heavy for the mind" stuff, this is not a must-see for you.
