During the maelstrom battle scene, when Will Turner swings on
a rope from the Black Pearl to the Flying Dutchman, it's obvious that a stunt double actually swings from the rope then falls to the deck several feet behind Orlando Bloom who then rises into frame. The stunt double lands on the deck and the camera cuts to a close up of Orlando standing up. It is not one single take, but two. See more »

Despite its many flaws, the movie still left me hungry for more.
The Pirates of the Caribbean-movie serials is probably one I'll never
grow tired off. The characters are fun and great, always adventurous
and spectacular to watch.
It's really too bad that this time they felt the need to make things
even bigger, more complex and conclusive than the previous two movies.
Really not needed. In my opinion the first movie "Pirates of the
Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" is still the best because of
the reason that it's simple, fun and choices to be purely entertaining.
They already went wrong with this approach during the second movie;
"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest", when they put in more new
characters and different hard to follow plot lines. "Pirates of the
Caribbean: At World's End" goes on in the same trend as the previous
movie. There are more new characters and as far as the new many
plot-lines are concerned...well let me just say that after a while I
just gave up trying to understand the movie and just let the movie take
me away with its visuals, humor and other entertaining elements. And
this movie regardless should really be able to take you away on a
roller-coaster-ride of pure entertainment.
No doubt in my mind that this movie could had become the best one out
of the series. It had all the potential and budget for that, now if
they had only cut down about halve of the script...Most of the
plot-lines seem redundant and are actually far from believable because
they contradict from what happened in the first two movies. The many
betrayals among characters and side-picking became really confusing
after a while, till it reached a point when you just didn't knew who
was fighting for what. But like I said before, after a while you just
stop caring about it and simply enjoy the movie for what it brings you.
It all is also the reason why the movie is now nearly 3 hours long. Now
the movie is not as good and entertaining as the first but maybe just
slightly better than the second one, because of the large scale of this
The movie is definitely big. There is no lack of action as some people
claim there is. There is just as much action as there is in the first
two movies, only difference this time is that the movie is nearly 3
hours long and therefor the movie also has some more talking-sequences
and slower moments in it.
The movie is also big with its musical score by Hans Zimmer and he
actually succeeded in composing a new great theme for the movie. In its
action moments the movie gets definitely uplifted by its musical score.
The action sequences are definitely well constructed and at times pure
eye candy. So are the special effects, although I feel that the second
movie was still better on that. It seems like they tried to overdo
things this time and I'm mainly talking about the end battle, when it
comes down to its special effects, by putting in some complex shots. No
matter how good CGI is these days, you still see that it's CGI.
Most roles get extended in this movie. Marty, Tia Dalma and even Jack
the monkey and Cotton's parrot. But of course the movie still remains
the Jack Sparrow-show. Really one of the best characters in recent
years, all thanks to Johnny Depp, who provide the movie with its
biggest laughs and most hilarious absurd moments. He still plays the
character as good and fresh as he did for the first time 4 years ago.
You can't just ever grow tired of Jack Sparrow. I was also very pleased
to see Geoffrey Rush back as Barbossa. His role was bigger which
allowed Geoffrey Rush to shine even more. Bill Nighy was also as good
as always as Davy Jones. Orlando Bloom's and Keira Knightley's acting
also has really improved over the years. I was actually surprised to
see how much of the movie Keira Knightley carries this time and how
well she does this. Even in the sequences with Geoffrey Rush she does.
She also gets to do more interesting in the movie when it comes done to
action. In a way she has taken over the Will (Orlando Bloom) role in
this movie this time and Will himself gets pushed more to the
background this time compared to the first two movies, which really
shouldn't bother most people, unless you're a teenage-girl of course.
She handles both the action- and comical sequences really well. And
even Keith Richards shows up in an already classic cameo as Jack's
father. But some role also got narrowed down to my regret, such as
Jonathan Pryce's and Jack Davenport's and lets not forget the Kraken.
Still, I really wouldn't mind seeing more Pirates of the Caribbean
movies in the future, if needed with new actors and characters, as long
as Johnny Depp stays as Jack Sparrow. The serials still have more than
enough potential and haven't dried up yet.
