Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

title stars


While it goes nowhere and takes a very long time – 169 minutes – not getting there, the last dubloon in the treasure chest of Pirates is fun to watch as it resolutely fails to arrive. A tangle of oblique references to nautical folklore, state of the art CGI and no detectable plot, At World’s End offers a final evening with Cap’n Jack Sparrow and a cast of rogues, villains and damned souls.

At least, it purports to be a final evening. The closing scenes hint at yet another sequel, and rumors have it that some of the actors in this film, including Cap’n Jack his’self, have signed on for another voyage.
