When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
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.Written by
The character of the pirate lord Mistress Ching is likely inspired by the real-life Chinese pirate Cheng I Sao (or Ching Yih Saou), who controlled the South China Sea with her large pirate fleet in the early 1800s. See more »
The Endevour is a first rate ship of the line. This means that, despite her armament, she was quite slow (3-4 knots at the most). Yet, she somehow manages to catch up with vessels like the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman, regarded to be the fastest ones afloat. See more »
In order to affect a timely halt to deterioriating conditions, and to ensure the common good, a state of emergency is declared for these territories by decree of Lord Cutler Beckett, duly appointed representative of His Majesty, the King.

It's like 150 people were told, "You can each write 1 minute of the screenplay", but no one was allowed to see what anyone else was writing; and then those little bits of script were all tossed into a blender, mixed on "high" for about a week, and finally splorked out onto the screen like a drunk sailor's vomit in stormy seas. Whoever the "continuity" person was for POTC3 should be keelhauled, drawn and quartered, hanged from a yardarm, then forced to have dinner with Gilbert Gottfried at a cheap taco joint called "The Alley Cat Tortilla".
In case it's not clear by now, what I'm saying is that THIS THING MADE NO SENSE. Is "comprehensible plot" no longer a viable concept? Has Hollywood finally come out and admitted that they'll make only one good movie, then churn out a mess (literally) of crappy sequels, knowing that their investment will make them big bucks no matter what? I hope to Poseidon that Johnny Depp is still smacking himself for ever agreeing to making this piece of trash.
And while I'm in the mood, politically incorrect as it may be, a skinny, diminutive, pouty-lipped blond won't be a convincing swashbuckler no matter HOW MUCH SHE BELLOWS!
For what it's worth, I loved the first POTC, tolerated the 2nd, and am a big pirate fan, in that I own my own swashbuckler costume, as well as a copy of "Treasure Island", have been spewing Robert Newtonish "piratese" for literally decades, and observe "Talk Like A Pirate Day" as my favorite holiday. So don't go thinking I didn't like this because I don't like pirates.
