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.

When Elizabeth is giving the rousing speech to the pirates on the gunwales of the ship, all the close up frontal shots of her show her hair partly tied up. Rear shots show her hair completely loose but damp and limp. As she jumps down from the gunwales, her hair is loose, dry and bouncy. Will Turner's hair in the same scenes sometimes appear neatly tied back, at other times flying in the wind in his face. See more »

As awesome a finale as anyone could have hoped for...
If you, like me, were disappointed by the over-hyped, sloppy and disappointing returns of Shrek and Spiderman in the first two mega-threquels of the summer, then I have good news for you. One third entry in a huge cinema franchise is every bit as good as you would expect.
While lacking the surprise of the original, the third Pirates film is much better than the second (though I liked it, I thought it had too many jokes and gags; a lot of the heart in the first was missing it seemed). Its lengthier, and not in a slowed-down way. Longer meaning more action, more characters (Chow Yun Fat and Keith Richards are awesome), and a final battle so enriched with awesome design, careful choreography and stunning visual effects it will blow your mind.
The cast is great, the thrills all first-rate. I don't want to give away any of the surprises and great moments to die-hard fans like myself. Just trust me: this summer spend your buck on Pirates...it's worth it!!!!
