Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)

With Jack Sparrow in Davy Jones’ Locker, Elizabeth and Will sail to World’s End under the hand of Captain Barbossa accompanied by Tia Dalma. For no obvious reason. Beckett uses the power of Davy Jones’ heart to clear the world of pirates. Which is bad. Apparently.

4/10

Turns out that scriptwriters Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot didn’t have any idea what was going on either. What we have here is dull and very long. What we don’t have is any fun. With the veneer of fun gone, the story of a bunch of rapists, murderers, liars, traitors and thieves using violence to ensure they can continue to rape, murder, lie, thieve and, er, trait is horribly exposed and difficult to stomach. The moral of the film, amazingly, is "Take what you can. Give nothing back."

This movie contains mild adult dialogue, mild swear words, Extended extreme fantasy violence

Classified 12A by BBFC. Persons under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
