POTC: At World's End
I suppose it goes without saying... but if you liked #2, you should like this one. A jolly good time, I thought.

Every loose end is neatly tied up and the fight sequences are fantastic. Barbosa is terrific and we get to see Jack Sparrow lose his mind this go around.

As always with this series; staying after the credits is a must.

I didnt really like the second one very much at all. But am just off to watch the 3rd one now. I dont even know why, Just feel like I need to.

I thought the second one was c**p. Still, I'll probably see the third one because I don't have to pay and I need to make use of my cinema card and there's sod all else on this weekend.

Is it as lame as #2's sequence?

Maybe this is just me; but I like the after credits scenes. It gives audiences a reason to sit through the credits; which by God; they should.

Having slaved away many hours on films myself; the end credits are the only public recognition I'll get for my time. The credits represent hundreds of hard working and many of them talente individuals. I think if you like a film; it's respectful to stay during the credits.

But that's just me.

Just saw it. It sucked. Just as bad as the second. A 3hr waste of time.

Visual effects and design were great, but the script was awful. So convoluted and boring. Do yourself a favour and dont bother.

The after credits scene adds nothing to the story whatsoever. It's stupid.

I'm actually looking forward to Mark Kermode's review more than the film itself Evil

I was glad to see my fav. character from the franchise *Jones* get a resolution, but apart from his totured love story and Barbosa there's really not much in the movie. it cost so much money and you can hardly tell since you're being bored to tears half the time. I'll give it a 6.5 I guess.

will see it again though despite all my complaints

Much better than the 2nd one. Excellent popcorn entertainment movie. I'm a bit sick of hearing all these critics saying the plot was confusing. I didn't find that at all. The scene after the credits is not just a little funny joke scene like the first 2 were, it actually could set up the 4th film so it was sort of worth sticking around for.

Watched it today and was utterly bored for about two hours of the film. Perked up a bit near the end, but only because I was impressed with the effects. Glad I didn't pay to see it.

Do you think paying for a film affects your enjoyment?

I work in a cinema so see everything for free as well. I often come out of a film and think "well that was ok". I think it would be a different story had I paid £7 for the pleasure. I am not sure whether it has dulled my critical edge slightly.

I think this must also apply to mainstream film journos across the country.

I don't rate POC at all! My nephew 16 turned to me and said " they are a really decent homage to the Star Wars OT in the same way as OT is a homage to Kurosawa"!!!! I nearly murdered him! I would rather have my teeth pulled out that watch 2 and 3 of this poor trilogy! Watching the first one was bad enough! On another note and it might be controversial- I would like to see Kermode take over from Ross on Film 2007,08,09etc very very soon!

Good idea darth raph. I'd actually start watching the program again, although he wouldn't please the majority of people who are quite happy with todays blockbuster cack. But i like it.

Lol! You are so right goatboy he is far to cerebral for the masses! Kermode wouldnt be able to help himself refering to classic films all the time when reviewing a new movie! Most wouldnt understand what he was on about so the Beeb would pull it!Real shame!

Did part 3 follow the structure of Jedi as much as part 2 did with Empire?

the only ROTJ moment I could find in the movie was the unmasking as it were of the villian. in Jedi we get to see Vader's face and in this one we get to see Davy Jones without all them CGI tenticles

wow I just spoiled the movie for those that haven't seen it huh? oh well

No, but it does ease the pain after watching a pile of of c**p. I recently saw Reno 911: Miami and it was possibly the worst thing I've sat through all year. I would never give it anything more generous than a 0/10, but as I didn't pay to see it I didn't feel as bad as I might have.

Really? I liked Reno 911. Maybe it's because I love the show... are you a fan of it?

Never seen it before, it's not on over here. I only went to see it because there was nothing else on. It was f**king terrible.

Great special effects, but excruciatingly boring for the first 2 hours, nothing like watching writers block up on the screen. Part 1: 8/10, Part 2: 6.5/10, Part 3: 4/10

Kermodes review was great, a full on 15 minute rant about the film. I did enjoy POTC3 but it was a film really about nothing in particular. Try telling someone what the film is about ....its not easy.  Seek out the Mark Kermode mp3/podcast of his reviews though...its a must

I know it was short on plot but I thought it was pretty good, a few laugh out loud moments and some great performances carried it most of the way.  I think Davey Jones is very convincing on screen, far more than any CGI Star Wars character.  Oh, the Sergio Leone scene on the beach is brilliant.

I enjoyed this movie a lot, it's much better than Dead Man's Chest. I liked how the series was wrapped up but a few parts were pridictable, especially the post-credits extra scene. DMC was shorter but felt like it dragged on a lot more than AWE did. The action scenes and especially the sword fights were better this time. I think this series would have been better had each film contained a seperate story, the cliffhanger in DMC would have had a bigger impact and the film wouldn't have felt like 2 1/2 hours of filler. I thought that this was one of the better third part movies in a series of trilogies.

The whole first 45 mins was straight out of Jedi. Rescuing Jack/Han.

Except in Jedi it took about 15 mins and was entertaining. In Pirates it took 45mins and sucked. (apart from the crabs under the boat)

I thought it was fun - a bit slow in places, but the last half hour was brilliant fun.

The effects were quite magnificent, with a couple of exceptions.

I seem to be in the other boat as it were. I thought the first bit in Singapore was good, but then it all just kinda crashed. I still liked it mind you, but definitely the weakest of the trilogy. A lot of stuff wasn't clear though. What was the deal with a certain squid-like character and his love?

The last half hour was ok at best. Yeah it had explosions and whatnot, but it was really to me just kinda bland and standard.
