Pirates 3=3 hours

Seriously, that’s all you need to know about the movie. It’s 3 hours long. And that’s about 90 minutes too long, based on what actually happens in the movie, which is so damn confusing that I’m still not sure what happened.

That said, it was enjoyable, at least for the action. Ignore the plot. Trying to figure it all out will hurt you. Just know this -- there’s lots of cool fights, and a fairly satisfying ending (but not too happy or perfect, even though it is technically a Disney movie).

Also, I must say that it’s pretty impressive that Elizabeth Swann (played by Kiera Knightly) can keep her make-up in perfect conditions on the high seas, even while in the gravest of dangers. Bravo, Ms. Swann, bravo.
