The story The end of all pirates seems near when Lord Beckett organises mass executions. Nobody can oppose him as he owns the heart of Davy Jones and therefore commands the „Flying Dutchman“. Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann, Captain Barbossa, the seer and the crew of the „Black Pearl“ try to gather the nine Pirate Lords and to free Jack Sparrow, who by Elizabeth´s initiative was killed by the Octopus and lingers in a twilight zone between life and death. As everybody has his/her own issues, treason is inevitable. A dangerous journey to the edge of the world, and beyond, begins...
The movie „Pirates Of The Caribbean - The World´s End“ The lonely Jack Sparrow in the twilight zone creates many imaginary Jack Sparrows, and therefore entertains the audience alone in a weird and surreal way. Adding this peanut, the only food supply, an imaginary goat and rabble that turns into crabs, this is the best part of the film and deserved 10/10 Here Verbinski might have thought, what´s better than Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow? Sure: Many of them! Those weird Alter Egos also appear after his release as devil/angel on his shoulders – simply great.
Unfortunately this high level cannot be achieved throughout the film, but it is not bad either. It is simply the third part of a trilogy, and those hardly ever turned out to be the best ones. There are many funny scenes, caused 90% by Johnny Depp´s brilliant acting and the colourful spectacle. Keith Richard´s Rolle as Jack Sparrow´s dad, who – surprise, surprise – owns a guitar, is another highlight. Who had seen the first and second pirate film should not miss this third one.
As the finale leaves some options and some of the actors have already announced their interest in a sequel, it might be possible that in some years – and hopefully Verbinski invests more time in scriptwriting then – the pirates will return.
