Director Gore Verbinski and the crew set sail once again for this, the third chapter in the swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is hopelessly trapped in Davy Jones' locker after a harrowing encounter with the dreaded Kracken, and now Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) must align themselves with the nefarious Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) if they hold out any hope of saving their old friend from a fate worse than death. The East India Trading Company and its fearsome leader, Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander),… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mind-bogglingly, there's virtually no swordplay for the first two hours; when Keith Richards shows up for his soused cameo, the visual joke hangs in the air."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"The plot is not only hard to follow, there seems to be nothing real at stake. Half the characters are already dead, and half the movie seems to involve swordfights with dead people who can't be killed with swords."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"As epic summer movies go, At World's End was pretty good. But don't try to make sense of anything, or you may suffer an aneurysm."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"If nothing else, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End's ambition and moral ambiguity still set it apart from the pack, but as a send off to the trilogy it staggers across the finish line more than winning out right."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is a hearty, bumpy sea marathon. For some, it will be a fun ride; for others, it will be an ordeal. I'm somewhere in between."
‑ Tony Macklin, Fayetteville Free Weekly
"Advice to Johnny Depp fans: enjoy a seafood dinner, skip the beginning, and roll up after half an hour. You won't have missed a thing."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Not so much thought out as strung together -- colorful incident upon colorful incident, but without logic, gathering suspense or any attempt to establish emotional connections between audience and actors."
‑ Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
"Just how much are you willing to forgive Johnny Depp and that sea-dog swagger of his?"
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Another piddling blockbuster with delusions of 'darkness'"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Ho-hum, ho-hum - it's the same old bilge again!"
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"The entire franchise seems on the verge of collapse, propelled to construct ever more grandiose flights of fancy. Without those sequences, there would be nothing there -- but a movie cannot exist on rollick alone."
‑ Tom Charity, CNN.com
"Depp descends into the shallows of self-parody, and the plot, keen to tie up every narrative loose end, manages to be simultaneously expansive and incomprehensible."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"While it fails in matching the unpredictable excitement of the original, this is more of what I'd want in Pirates sequels. Just a little less of it."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"[Verbinski] borrows from a half-dozen mythologies to construct a fitting punishment for the culture of narcissism, compulsive consumption, and greed that makes movies like this one necessary."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"a little disapointing, but still fun"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
