I just saw Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Thought some parts were drawn out a little too much, but still an exciting movie to go see. I recommend you see it if you saw the first two, it will have a suprise ending for you.
I saw it yesterday. It had a very powerful beginning scene, and I was buzzing after I walked out of the theatre despite the length (which I didn't really notice during the film). The action scenes were great. It had a few bits that I thought were a little silly, but I laughed out loud every time someone got murdered in an amusing way, or when Capt Jack said something random just like the first two. The arrival of Jack's dad (Brilliant casting btw) was an example of that. I'm deciding if I like the innocence of the first (which i watched a few days ago, or the darkness and terrific action of this one. I think I'm liking this the most though. A special mention to 'Jack' the monkey too, he was great.
I hope not, but they left it open in case. I like having this be the end. Let everyone dream up what adventures come next on their own. Everyone is left royally screwed at the end of this movie, lets leave it like that.

Quoting EK20 (Reply 21): Yes but did you hear the one today? It went on for about 15 minutes and I don't think he stopped to take a breath.
Indeed. Exactly as he was for 1 & 2.
Regular listeners have known for years that all you have to do to inspire a truly epic Kermode rant is send in an email saying how wonderful Pirate of the Caribbean is. A true Kermode rant is the reason we all tune in in the first place.

++++++++++ SPOILER ALERT +++++++++++++
Okay, here's what came at the end of the credits.
We see a young boy walking down a meadow on an island toward a cliff overlooking the sea. He's about ten years old and is singing the "Pirates life for me" song to himself. The boy is played by the same actor as the child who was hanged at the beginning of the film. He's followed by Elizabeth who stands behind him as they look out across the ocean at sunset. The sun goes down and we see a flash of green light. The Dutchman appears and Will gazes toward the island. We then see Elizabeth and the boy looking toward the ship excitedly.
