PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END is the second part of the story begun in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST. The crew of the Black Pearl along with a resurrected Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) sail off the edge of the world to bring back Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) and the black Pearl from the land of the dead aka Davey Jones Locker. Once they do that, they must unite the pirate lords to stop Davey Jones and the British (the East India Company) who want to destroy all pirates.



The third installment in the series is fun and yet it is a little too long (168 minutes) by about at least 20 minutes. The action sequences are the strongest thing in this film wheher it is at the start of the film or the very long climatic battle. I did like the Spaghetti Western homage. Chow Yun Fat is nice to see in another film, but I wish he was in it for longer. A few characters do die and you have at least two ways to do another sequel. Does this live up to the summer popcorn blockbuster movies before it? Yes. Is it a critic friendly film? No. It is more of one for the fans and the audience in general.
