Radar Blips - Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End


The Year: 2007

The Players: Willy Wonka, Legolas, Casanova Frankenstein, a chick with a serious case of crabs, and Keira Knightly

The Take: $309 Million

Is Asia supposed to be the end of the world?
The pirates do sail to Asia in the film, but from there, they sail to Davy Jones' Locker which lays below a big waterfall at the end of the world.

Why you should see it: If this movie wasn't so overlong, I would have a more compelling argument, but there are enjoyable elements of this 3quel. Basically, if you skip over all of the multiple Johnny Depp scenes, and the wedding scene at the end, you can enjoy the ship flip, every scene with squid faced Davy Jones, and of course the ship to ship battle in the whirlpool at the end. The best scene though, was the slow-mo destruction of the Endeavor where splinters around the defeated Lord Beckett. I also thought the score for this movie was one of the best element. Thank goodness though the trilogy has ended. I don't think I could sit through another 3 hours of swashbuckling for a while.
