Just when he's needed most, Captain Jack Sparrow, that witty and wily charmer of a pirate, is trapped on a sea of sand in Davy Jones' Locker. In an increasingly shaky alliance, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann and Captain Barbossa begin a desperate quest to find and rescue him.
Captain Jack's the last of the nine Pirate Lords of the Brethren Court who must come together united in one last stand to preserve the freedom-loving pirates' way of life. From exotic Singapore, to World's End and beyond, from Shipwreck Island, to a titanic battle, this adventure is filled with over-the-edge action, irreverent humour and seafaring myth and magic. Everything has led to this twisting, turning, wild swashbuckling ride in this, the final chapter of the Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy.

Having absolutely loved the 2nd Pirates movie, I was majorly looking forward to At World's End... would they bring the loveably annoying Jack Sparrow back from the dead?
Patches throughout the movie caused it to be my least favourite of the 3... especially the lame and outrightly stupid segment of Sparrow in Davy Jones' Locker (although I was extremely thankful they had cut it down to a bare minimum in the DVD version, as the version played at the Cinemas just dragged and took up way too much of the movie). But overall, it was still a very enjoyable movie. The pirates' call-to-arms "Hoist The Colours" at the beginning of the movie was rather haunting, and was used several times throughout the movie, lending a sense of "loyalty" to the Pirate Bretheren that is usually lacking in a lot of pirate-type movies. As to be expected, there was plenty of betrayal on all sides, making it difficult in places to know just who was on who's side... something I felt was a little over done.
The Special Features were quite fascinating to watch... especially learning just how much of the movie is actually computer generated!! My favourite two sections of this would probably have to be "Anatomy of a Scene: The Maelstrom" (which had my 7 year son enthralled as well, and usually he gets bored with things like that!), and the section about the Map, in amongst the "Masters of Design - Creating the Pirates' World" section. So much detail went into that map!! A lot more than I had noticed with just watching the movie.
Although I'm definitely glad this is (errr...hopefully) the last of the P.O.T.C movies, and my least favourite of the 3, "At World's End" is still worth having in the collection, or at least watching if you've seen the previous 2, and getting the double disc set is worth the extra money if you're one for seeing what goes on behind the scenes!
