  • The good news first: Keith Richards totally rocks it playing pirate daddy to Johnny Depp's Capt. Jack Sparrow. The deep rumble of his voice and those hooded eyes that narrowly open like the creaky gates of hell make him what the rest of this three-peat is not: authentically scary...So what's the bad news? Richards is onscreen for barely two minutes. show more

  • Has no narrative throughline, no emotional spine. It's a mess. show more

  • The pirate ship has hit foul waters, and even the sharp wit and charm of everyone's favorite buccaneer can't save it. show more

    I am a big Pirates fan, that was truely disappointed. They forgot what made the first Pirates so great. It was funny. They didn't take themselves so serious. The third comes in third in my book.

    I was a little disappointed in the second pirates, but this one proves their just playing it out for every penny they can get. If you own the previous two, buy the third on dvd when it becomes available, so as to complete your collection. But don't pay the bucks to see it on the big screen, it's not worth it!If there's a fourth, I won't bother seeing it or buying it.
