Preposterous, bloated, convoluted... I enjoyed it more when I saw it at home as I was ready for it to disappoint me, but it just seems such a waste to have gone all Star Wars on it, needlessly. It could have been such a great adventure yarn, but instead we have endless redundant plot lines - such as Calypso sub plot - and shameless misuse of excellent actors like Chow Yun Fat at the expense of Ikea Knightly and Orlando Bland.
The final scene with Jack Sparrow looked genuinely interesting, and I felt I could watch his adventure right then and be entertained, just a shame about the messy almost three hours that preceded it...
