(at around 32 mins) When the screen goes black, as the crew fall over World's End, the ghostly music and voices heard are directly from the Disneyland ride. Most noticeable is Paul Frees' voice of the skull and crossbones, that infamously warns passengers "Dead men tell no tales!" See more »
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 »

Good conclusion to the series, same problems as the 2nd
AWE was a decent close to the trilogy (although they did leave it open for the possibility of a 4th).
Lets go down the list: 1) Holy cow. The CGI is breathtaking. The details on the sets is just as breathtaking. The filming sites were beautiful. These are a talented group of folks I tell ya. GREAT job.
2) Acting .. both good and bad. Sparrow, Barbossa, Beckett, Norrington, Jones, and Gibbs provided some very good acting and funny moments. However, they were offset by Pintel and Ragetti (they got annoying in the 2nd film and it didn't stop here. While I enjoyed the idea of Tia Dalma's character, I wasn't impressed with the performance by beautiful Miss Harris. I haven't especially liked Keira all that much in other things she has done and it was the same here. Decent actress but not overly impressive. Stellan's portrayal of Bill Turner was decent enough but a notch down from what we KNOW he can do. Now the best for last. Im a 100% hetero male and even I can say that Orlando Bloom is a VERY good looking guy. But for the love of pete, this guy is one of the most terrible actors ever and strangely, he was cast in two of the biggest, most profitable trilogies ever. He has essentially played the same character in every movie, just with different costumes. His mannerisms, his low "sexy" voice, his facial expressions .. ALLLL the same, all the time. Sooo blahhhhhhh.
3) The story was good but there was too much of it. It has been said here but I will say it again. At one point, I just stopped trying to follow along and just enjoyed it. Everyone stabbed everyone else in the back at least once. It wasn't "hard to follow" but a movie like this isn't supposed to make you think. You want that, go see .... Clue :P the whole Singapore thing was just unneeded. While it did add a new element to the film, it just seemed too forced.
4) Running time was a tad bit long but it passed fairly quickly due to the great action sequences.
All in all .. I was impressed with the movie, but it has its problems. Much like part 2.
I say go and see it. You wont be disappointed but you wont walk out thinking you just saw a masterpiece either.
Just my thoughts ...
