"One ship sails east, the other west, by the self same winds that blow; it's the set of the sails, and not the rules, that decides the way to go"  - Errol Flynn

After Elizabeth (Keira Knightly), Will (Orlando Bloom), and Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) rescue Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from the clutches of the Kraken, they must face their foes, Davey Jones (Bill Nighy) and Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander). Beckett, now with control of Jones' heart, forms a dark alliance with him in order to rule the seas and wipe out the last of the Pirates. Now, Jack, Barbossa, Will, Elizabeth, Tia Delma, and crew must call the Pirate Lords from the four corners of the globe, including the infamous Sao Feng (Chow-Yun Fat), to a gathering that will make their final stand against Beckett, Jones, Norrington, the Flying Dutchman, and the entire East India Trading Company.

Following a long tradition of Swashbuckling heroes in Hollywood best symbolized by the Great Errol Flynn, Gore Verbinski has successfully brought back the genre and modernized it with Fantasy and humour.


Will there be a sequel to this movie ? It is hard to say after the Mega Success and accumulation of work ( All three episodes were shot one after the other for three different releases) that was in itself an adventure for the entire cast. What is sure is that it will certainly remind many of the great hours of Warner Bros' greatest Swashbuckler Errol Flynn and his Pirate Buddies. Yo-Ho-Ho and a Bottle of Rhum !
