Plenty of action, but is this franchise getting darker and moving toward comic-horror. No longer a family movie. But for all that I enjoyed it.
The second film in the series is not nearly as good as the first, and by this third episode the carbon-paper was getting very worn. The special effects are excellent, but the film moves from one sequence to another without bothering too much about the plot.
Once again, Pirates of the Caribbean had me in stitches at times. We can only wish that all pirates were like Captain Jack Sparrow. Looking forward to seeing No. 4
Really, one of the worst (have seen them all and felt like I had missed a film.)
Adolescent tripe. I did not watch much of it and could not follow what I did watch.
my favourite of the franchise. love the fortress.
this was not playable. advised of fault. not acknowledged.
I think they may have dipped into the same pot one too many times with this one! Don't get me wrong it did have some really funny parts and the acting was fantastic, but some of the story line left a lot to be desired.
We loved it also. Great story/plot, acting fantastic. More twists and turn than a bag of snakes and a heap of funny lines and sight gags
loved it! More twists and turnd than the Flying Dutchman could make :-)
Good story, good action, good special effects......
and a nice long movie !
couln't watch this movie this was the second dvd could u please check your dvds before sending them please i was very dissapointed. thanks
As excellent as the first of the series. With most of the same characters and excellent acting by Johhny Depp, Geoffry Rush and many others, it is full of action and adventure. Make sure you watch the end of the credits!
Very long but still good. Again it wasn't as tidy from a storyline perspective as the first film but still very entertaining.
I didn't even watch the movie to the end. It too long to get into the story line and I got bored trying to figure out what was happening it the perpetual darkness.
Great 3rd instalment. The special effects were awesome. Always hard to keep up the story lines and keep the audience captivated with instalments but this movie nails it. Brilliant.
Awesome! Original and best movie I've seen all year.
the witch spotlit this movie it was in way to many screens .
I thought this was a pretty poor attempt at a part 3. It had its funny bits thats for sure but not a great moive over all
A great pirate movie, great special effects
great picture to watch...with unique comedy.
the 3rd installment in a brilliant series of films.. this is as enjoyable as the 1st 2 and just as funny, sad and exciting.. great scenery and fights.. a sad touching ending that was unexpected by me..
It took me three attempts to watch it, as I kept falling asleep. Didn't like it at all - tedious. I really liked the other two films (1 and 2)
great movie bit sad at the end but it was a great movie.
Not as good as the others and seems to drag on, and ok watch though
As with most trilogies, the original is always the best. I really missed the amusing character interaction between Jack Sparrow, Will Turner
Not as straight-forward as the preceding versions of this saga - but a 'fun' movie anyway. The plot line seemed to get 'tangled up', and was a little more difficult to follow. Fun development of the Anaheim ride, at Disneyland, with light-weight escapism. Couldn't see how Singapore fitted into "Pirates of the Caribbean", however. I thought they were a few thousand miles apart. Loved Johnny Depp's reprisal of his character. As always, worth seeing. Orlando
At World's End is an excellent fast paced action filled film to finish off the 'Pirates' trilogy.
Action sequences are bigger, special effects are more impressive and the story is more creative as all the loose ends are tied off nicely. Acting by everyone is A+ on the direction of Gore Verbinski who is an excellent director. Each of the three films get better and better.
I gave it 4/5.
top movie johnny depp at his ecentric best, i enjoyed how they brought the story lines together, excellent special effects,
Very diappointed, the first two were great, what happened! The DVD picture
I've been a fan of the first two movies and thought this latest one was just as good. The ending was unexpected and makes one wonder if there will be any more. Great movies all of them. However, you do need to watch them more than once as the plot is usually quite complex.
Excellent movie. I watched it when it was first release on the movie and still enjoyed it very much when I watched it on DVD. Excellent performances.
Rollicking great fun and it all comes down to one person...Johnny Depp!
While the move has many slow sections....it is worth it all to see Keith RIchards play Jack Sparrow's (Johnny Depp's) father.
The best out of all three. Yet it lees action than 2nd one in a way. Finally we will get some answers......
Not as good as the other 2 films. Not enough Depp. The comic element was missing. Also when you feel a movie is to long, it's not a good sign.
It has its moments (particularly Sparrow's surreal hallucinations and his rivalry with Barbosa) but, overall, it's a baffling clunker of an ending. Most baffling is the amnesia that seems to have struck Norrington, being as he bears little resemblance to the character in the previous two films.
Enjoyable - but no-where near as good as the first two.
The third chapter in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies, 'At World's End' proved itself to be an exciting movie despite the length of 168 minutes. With almost endless action and adventure, this is one movie to make your buckle down your hatches, set your crew(fellow watchers) and set sail to yet another blistering barnacle of a time.
This movie once again is packed with the right sense of humour with the right timing to make you laugh and for those with loose eyes, shed some tears. Grab your mates, tie down your kids, fire up the popcorn and serve up the brew and enjoy this top notch swash buckling movie.
5 Stars and worth every single one of them!
Good fun and Johnny Depp is always great.
Not as good as the first but worth watching.
Garbage! All action, no story.
Ending - unexpected. Brilliant for a pirate movie. CGI done very well in this movie. As far as sequels are concerned better than the first two, more of a story line which kind of failed in my eyes in the first one.
Good continuation, keeps you interested.
Strange but sad ending.
Good family fun. Johnny Depp is greayt as Captain Jack.Worth watching
I did wonder why Keith Richards was not in costume for his role? Oh- thats right he always looks like that!!!
They just tried to cram too much into the one episode, so we're never truly involved with everyone's/anyone's story, and often have no idea even what's happening. It's a pity because with some control it could have been extraordinary (certainly some amazing SFX). Instead we get this dodgy randomness.
Would have given this 4 stars, but the movie is let down because it's too long and the convoluted storyline is hard to follow. Excellent action scenes at the climax and a pretty satisfying end to the trilogy.
Fantastic though seems a bit disjointed in the beginning
Ok, no story-line and no plot, but what a load of fun. Heaps of action, great send-up of Pirates everything that a Pirate movie should have. Enjoyed the acting by most key players though I was hoping the two love "interests" would join in the fun
Installment number 3... and the ending seems to lead one to expect yet another... please do spare us the agony... very disappointing, confusing, mayhem for the sake of it, little storyline...
Crap, definitely one of the most pathetic and frivolous movies I have ever seen and with my johnny depp in it, what a shame!!
The movie was ok, but I thought it was not as good as the first 2 , a little boreing.
nowhere near as good as 1 & 2. didn't even watch past the first hour.
The story didnt seem to go anywhere..
I was a bit worried about what this would be like as I found the first movie and the sequel were miles apart. Alas, the standard rose again but still not upto the standard of the first.
I really don't know what all the fuss is about the Pirate's trilogy. After having seen all three my verdict: Apart from some special effects: The story is certainly not worth it.
Pretty average popcorn flick, but way too long
Third time round and the script is even messier, the action more confused, and the point completely lost.
I really liked it, funny.
only if you have seen the other two - first one still the best
I'm a fan of the first. But the 2 following it were horrible.
Possible on eof the worst films I have ever seen. The story line is so complex it is impossible to follow.
good childrens movie, we don't have children to give a fair rating, my husband enjoyed it
While this movie is nowhere near as good as the first and perhaps even the second, it is still always wonderful to spend a couple of hours in the company of Captain Jack Sparrow. Popular opinion in our house was that there is too much talking and not enough action (I'm not sure of that myself as there is only so many sword fights one can watch). There was a lot of loose ends to tie up and not much screen time to do it, plus some of the jokes were kind of obvious. But still, definitely worth watching.
It was painful. So so so long.... and like someone said above, there wasn't really a true ending.
I was also surprised at the amount of death and sexual reference, given it's a Disney flick. Not that I mind all that, but it just didn't fit.
Two big thumbs down.
The first movie was great, the second was fantastic and I couldn't wait to see this, the third...
Yes, action, comedy and a great cast were plentiful. I enjoyed the movie, yet I couldn't help feel disappointed when comparing it to the first two movies as it seemed to lack the spark/charm they had -- perhaps because it didn't have the classic Hollywood ending.
Disappointed with no. 3. Not as much swashbuckling action and alot of dialogue!!!! Might need to watch several times to keep up with what happens.
typical fun romp. Not a classic, but a happy enough way to spend a night in!
A nice little twist concerning the love of Davy Jones. Has a very funny spoof reel - not long enough i think!
Love Johnny Depp, as always he's brilliant. Another great tale in this trilogy, maybe there's room for another one? perhaps not.
Not quite as good as the first but the fight and storm scenes are great. Got to love Johnny Depp!
Great movie and finish to the series
Much like the first two, I thought this was over-produced and the plot under-done. I'm still trying to work out why the franchise is so successful -- Depp is always fabulous, but one good actor can't bail a sinking ship.
I've seen all of them but I still think the first one is my favourite. Another quality performance by all the cast, especially Johnny Depp. The special effects are at their best in this one.
Very good jonny depp was exellent as always
First movie was excellent, second was OK, the third, a yawn fest. Tried twice to watch and turned it off both times. A painful storyline with excellent visuals.
Exciting adventure with Captain Jack Sparrow. His lime light is stolen by the twist at the end.
I liked the movie but I felt that something had been left out. Everything came together in the end. I liked the other two better.
I think it was a liitle less exciting than Pirates 2, however i'd highly recommend it. It is unusual to see a trilogy where all three are great movies, with the exception of the Lord of the Rings of course.
Not as good as the first two. Took a while for Johnny Depp to appear, and without him there is no point in watching the PC movies at all. Not as much fun as the other two, a little bit too evil, just basically looks like someone cashing in for a quick buck. It is not the worst movie in the world, but I had to watch it in 3 sittings as it was pretty boring in most parts. But as always, Johnny Depp is amazing and worth it to seem him ham it up once again.
The effects and filming was excellent. However, the story line and acting left a lot to be desired.
Beautifully made but just too tired. The first is the best because it has some base in reality. This one is just too silly to be engaging despite the high production standards.
The first hour is excellent, then is downhill from there... terrible... The first movie was genious... the continuation is disapointing...
Watchable, but I just don't get the hype. No idea what was going on with the storyline. The strength of the characters kept it entertaining. Hang in through the end credits to see the movie tag line.
the children enjoyed the movie, a good follow on from the other proceeding in the series
Yup, they kinda gave the clue away in Pirate's of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest - that there was another film to be made and so here it is.
Could it be any better - Oh yes, it's good, it's very, very good and who'd have though Bill Nighy would be in a Pirate movie? He too has Johnny Depp's penchant for playing a Pirate.
Now we have the love Triangle, the Pirate fractions, The Indian Spice trading company, feisty Miss Swan, Davy Crockett, William turner Junior and senior and the delightful Jack Sparrow all fighting. Savvy?
Jack Sparrow is lost in a world quite removed from the rest and so the madness ensues and you suspend belief.
This film is as funny as the first, as intriguing as the second yet still delivers good family fun in it's own right.
An overworked theme that has become repetitive. Largely lost on me.
Loved this movie - great action. Just adore Jack.
A very well made movie and enjoyed every minute of it, just wondering if there will be more as you can see they left no ending.
Third and final in the series tidies things up and although it lacks a bit of the punch of the first two, it's still great entertainment. The entire cast is virtually irresistable. Great entertainment.
enjoy this one ,wonders if they will make a 4th
Great movie, prefer to see more of Johnny Depps acting skills, without him themovie would b alet down.
It was pretty long and not as funny as the others. But some good closure.
Not as good as the other two. The ending seems a bit of an anti-climax and a bit soppy. You have to see it of course if you've seen the first two.
Contry to popular thought, I found this movie to be boring. After the first half hour, i was wondering where it was going. couldn't understand what the actors were saying, couldn't under stand the plot, was emparassed for Johny Depp. Still it will make a packet just because of its name and J.D.
not a bad movie; too not what i expected.
Not quite as clever as the first two movies but still very entertaining. Johnnie Depp is fantastic.
Good follow up well worth watching.
Not the best one but still a good laugh.
Pirates of the caribbean 1 and 2 are much better.
We enjoyed the final pirates, some great scenes Johnny as the lovable pirate Jack Sparrow I thought was charming sure I'm not alone there!!
Captain Jack has surely sailed his last voyage...
As good as the other two, lots of fun and adventure
lots of fun movie - if not a bit corny in parts
not much of a plot line, and too evil for me
my kids just love this movie going out to buy it its a must see dvd
I was so very disappointed in this movie. Whilst the first PotC managed to combine humour and action to create a rollicking good pirate tale, PotC part 3 was a annoying mixture of cliche and too many special effects. The ending is especially disappointing, and seems to suggest a continuation of the franchise...for all our sakes I hope not. A very dodgy ending to something was initially so great.
POTC have come to their end
I hope this is the end of the series. Although this was better than the 2nd and Rush and Depp saved the day (yet again), there was a failure to bring anything new and vitalising to the film.
Good movie. Went for a little bit too long.
This is a great movie like the other 2 before it
While watching this film, I found myself at many times thinking, what is the main story being told here. It seems to be all over the place, just going from 1 ridiculous scene to the next. Its exactly what I thought it would be like, having watched the 1st 2 films. You already know what you are going to get before you rent this one.
Some serious editing and tighter direction would have helped this movie to rate alongside the first two Pirate movies. As it was Johnny Deppe's character became a camp caricature of itself and there were many pointless and unecessary scenes which added very little to the overall movie experience.
great movie if you like the first two you will enjoy this one
The directors would have been better off leaving us hanging at #2. I loved the first two movies but this one was a major let down. Comparitively disapointing spec effects, plot and acting. The only redeeming feature was Orlando Bloom as the captain of the flying dutchman. Don't bother.
i enjoyed this, pirates is great .great cast especially Geoffrey Rush,Keira Knightley is cute . Recommend to all who liked the first two Pirates of the Carribean movies.
Enjoyed it more than the second movie. It was a bit confusing early.
You have to watch this to finish the series but still not as good as the first movie.
I found the story a bit confusing, especially at the beginning. Other than that, it's a great pirate movie with good special effects.
I found this better than the second. Rush shines as Barbosa. Great scenes in this movie - and an ending you don't expect.
Not as good as the first two but still a great two and a half hours! Depp and Rush are wonderful as Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa.
