(at around 1h 28 mins) Carina says she is named after "the brightest star of the North". This is wrong for several reasons. First, Carina is not a star, but a constellation. Secondly, it is a southern constellation, in fact it can't even be seen in most of the Northern hemisphere. Finally, the movie takes place in 1755, and Carina wasn't named until 1763, having been an integral part of the larger Argo Navis constellation. See more »
The Disney logo features the Black Pearl ship sailing in the background, and has the castle flying the Jolly Roger pirate flag amidst a stormy sky. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
Very disappointed with the direction they went for this one
The writing is very minimalistic, character's are all former shadows of themselves. The young character leads are forgettable and character development feels almost non-existent. The lead female is an advocate for woman's rights it seems..instead of just being a really cool protagonist who 'happens' to be female. The whole cast pretty much runs around doing nothing. Jack's crew (Gibbs in particular) have been reduced to mediocre comedy relief. Quite a few plot holes as well as being historically inaccurate in parts. I did enjoy a few scenes, not enough to warrant a rave review though. :P
I've enjoyed all of the Pirates films but I think it's about time they wrap things up.
