Storyline

After Elizabeth, Will, and Captain Barbossa rescue Captain Jack Sparrow from the the land of the dead, they must face their foes, Davy Jones and Lord Cutler Beckett. Beckett, now with control of Jones' heart, forms a dark alliance with him in order to rule the seas and wipe out the last of the Pirates. Now, Jack, Barbossa, Will, Elizabeth, Tia Dalma, and crew must call the Pirate Lords from the four corners of the globe, including the infamous Sao Feng, to gathering. The Pirate Lords want to release the goddess Calypso, Davy Jones's damned lover, from the trap they sent her to out of fear, in which the Pirate Lords must combine the 9 pieces that bound her by ritual to undo it and release her in hopes that she will help them fight. With this, all pirates will stand together and will make their final stand for freedom against Beckett, Jones, Norrington, the Flying Dutchman, and the entire East India Trading Company.

Goofs

During the waterfall scene before the ship goes over the side everyone is scrambling about deck. You hear at least two characters including Elizabeth give the command "Hard a port". When this film was taking place the type of commands for steering ships at sea were called tiller commands. The tiller on a ship is what actually moves the rudder and a hard to port command would have made the ship turn right and not left as it did. Tiller commands were replaced by rudder commands in the early 20th century. The modern rudder command would have made the ship turn as it did. See more »

A Splendid Close to a Splendid Trilogy
29 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to view "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" in its first showing in my home town. I had been looking forward to this film ever since I had seen the first showing of "Dead Man's Chest". I felt like with Barbossa's cliffhanging return, the creators of the "POTC" films were promising their beloved fans something truly fantastic in the third film. Personally, I feel that they delivered on this promise. As I do not want to put any spoilers in my comments I will simply just say that all of the major questions are answered in a most satisfying and creative manner. There are, however, a crop of new questions that have been left for audience members to figure out on their own. I don't believe like these questions were left open for a possible fourth film (lets not all beat a dead horse), but I think they serve as a delightful "fill in the blanks" situation for viewers. Its almost as if one leaves the theater feeling like our beloved pirate friends are still out at sea, having the most marvelous of adventures.

As always, this film boasts an impressive lineup of performers. There is always the ever brilliant Johnny Depp who is as fantastic as ever in his role of Captain Jack Sparrow, the handsome Orlando Bloom who showed some great progress and confidence in his delivery of the role of young William Turner and the feisty and adventurous Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Swann. Other notable performances in the film can be found with Geoffrey Rush's crazed Captain Barbossa, a particular favorite of mine and a touching performance my Naomi Harris as the mysterious Tia Dalma. Add a splash of Keith Richards in an unforgettable cameo, Chow Yun Fat, and some Murtog and Mulroy and there you have it.

As a compliment to this constantly high-energy cast we have the usual full blown sets and computer graphics as can be expected in any Disney film. I truly reveled in the sets, stunts, and costumes as well as a stunning musical score composed by Hans Zimmer.

All of these wonderful elements come together in the final 40 minutes of the film. Again, I don't want to put any spoilers in this commentary, but I assure you, this film really does not disappoint.
