Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Holland) has ordered mass executions of each and every pirate, and everybody who ever helped a pirate, and Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) is forced to help him hunting down pirate ships because Becket is in possession of the chest that contains Davy’s heart. The pirates of the world have to unite against the Royal British Navy, the East India Trading Company and Davy Jones’ Flying Dutchman or they will all perish.
But first Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) must save Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from Davy Jones’ Locker because he is one of the nine Pirate Lords of the Brethren Court, and they seek Sao Feng’s (Chow Yun-Fat) assistance because they need a ship and a crew. Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris) who has resurrected Barbossa is also on board.
Much treachery, double-crossing and changing of allegiances follows before the British and the Pirates and the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman confront each other because everybody is pursuing his own personal goals or revenge plans.

At World’s End was filmed back-to-back with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, with screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio on set during shooting and seemingly trying to tie up all loose ends of the first two parts and at the same time cramming in each and every idea that came to the mind of anybody involved into production. But are 168 minutes enough to tell so many different stories? Hardly, and the result is that most of the sub-plots become so half-baked that the viewer stops to care. Gratuitous characters and sub-plots include – but are not limited – to Chow Yun-Fat’s Sao Feng (and the whole Brethren Court business), the Calypso-Goddess-Of-The-Sea sequences and the multiple-personality scenes with Captain Jack Sparrow. Carelessly given away are Davy Jones’ background story and the Captain Jack-character which is not the one we know. And where is the ultimate battle between the British armada and the united pirate fleets?
Pirates fans will still find pleasure in the many action scenes and FX-showpieces, but less would have been more for At World’s End.

  1. itsvery Movie Review Blog - Independent Film Reviews » SHREK THE THIRD by Chris Miller Says:

    […] Another third part (or “threequel” as it’s called meanwhile) this year, and just like the other two big “threequels” (Spider-Man 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End Shrek the Third doesn’t match his predecessors. Shrek the Third is technically brilliant, the animation is top notch, but everything that made Shrek so brilliant is gone. The plot is neither original nor very exciting, the pacing slow, character development nonexistent, important supporting characters (Puss in Boots, Donkey, the Dragon) underused, comic and action highlights sadly missing, and some characters (e.g. Merlin) are plainly annoying. Two stars for the animation, and one Puss in Boots as benefit of the doubt (because i’ve watched it dubbed in German and it seems there was quite something Lost in Translation). […]
