Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End 

Two and a half stars (PG-13)

Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush

For all its fire and thunder, the third installment in the massively popular Disney series is a sluggish affair. At World’s End is big and busy and loud and full of swashbuckling, but it’s not nearly as fun as it should be. Too busy, too fragmented. Depp, still blending Keith Richards and Pepe Le Pew for his Jack Sparrow character, has some good moments, but his prancing isn’t as entertaining as it used to be. The standout this time around is Rush as Captain Barbossa, offering a wicked, robust, richly entertaining performance. 167 minutes.

DVD INFO: A regular edition and a two-disc feature-laden package are available. The latter includes outtakes, a detailed breakdown of the maelstrom scene, a look at the relationship between Johnny Depp and Keith Richards, featurettes on the multiple Jacks, the music, ChowYun-fat and lots more.
