Jack was shown checking his compass to decide whether or not to go back and help. However, what the compass told him was never shown. My understanding is that he came back because the compass pointed towards the Black Pearl. He looked at the compass as he was in a moral dilemma because he had abandoned his crew and friends to die when he alone was ...

Jack has two drives: Self-preservation Being captain of a ship It has been shown time and again how Jack will go to extraordinary lengths to become captain of a ship, even if it's just a rowboat (as seen at the end of At World's End). When the Kraken was attacking The Black Pearl, Jack's first instinct was the same as anyone else's would be in such a ...

In a narrative like this, it's not so easy (nor productive) to use binary terms like "dead" or "alive" or think of a "place" like World's End as a real location. Indeed, throughout the franchise they continually play with different conceptions of dead, living, animated, silent, present, missing, etc. You might just as well ask whether or not Barbossa was ...

There is a common sailors' phrase: "Davy Jones' Locker" which means "the bottom of the ocean": Davy Jones' Locker, also Davy Jones's Locker, is an idiom for the bottom of the sea: the state of death among drowned sailors and shipwrecks. It is used as a euphemism for drowning or shipwrecks in which the sailor(s)'s and/or ship(s)'s remains are consigned to ...

He was shocked by fact that he lost the Dutchman. And has not chance of winning the battle and even to come alive which was sure victory situation at start. From wikia: Despite losing the Flying Dutchman, Beckett remains confident of his victory and takes out the Endeavour to destroy the Black Pearl personally. Jack, to everyone's surprise, orders ...

Even though the scene is an after credits scene, it could have taken place before the ships sailed away. Nothing in the scene itself makes that impossible, although it is a bit quiet, I suppose they could all have been preparing the ships to set off, and he snuck away to steal the coin... Obviously the writers themselves probably didn't think about the ...

As per wikia, she is at Port Royal. Check out the epilogue on above link page: Epilogue Ten years later, Elizabeth and her son, young Will Turner reside in Port Royal.Young Will sings a pirate song, with Elizabeth following behind. They both stand at the edge of a cliff, looking at the horizon, waiting for the sun to set. Finally, they see a flash ...

I assume that you're asking about the final scenes on the island, when Jack is rummaging through the riches in the island's cave (providing a very unromantic setting for Will's and Elizabeth's conversation) The answer to your question is that not all the items in that cave bring you the curse. Only the coins do, as explained to Elizabeth by captain ...

Singapore, at that time, was one of the busiest ports in Asia. If not the busiest port. Pirates would have visited Singapore often. Also, prostitution is not illegal in Singapore. A prostitute wears something which makes them alluring, and a corset definitely fits that bill. The inference is that Jack Sparrow had frequently been to Singapore, had ...

This is the conversation between Jack Sparrow and Bootstrap Bill when the latter came to deliver Davy Jones' message and the black spot: Jack: And to what do I owe the pleasure of your carbuncle? Bootstrap: He sent me. Davy Jones. Jack: So it's you, then. He shanghaied you into service, eh? Bootstrap: I chose it. I'm sorry for the part I played in ...

In the film Davy Jones is supposed to be ferrying souls lost at sea into the Locker so they can be at peace. However, the Davy Jones in the film is not doing his job properly, hence the weird/fish/ocean/coral like appearance of him and his crew. Instead, Davy Jones is attacking pirates and sailors and offering them a choice, to die or to serve on his ship. ...

To elaborate on the answer to this question Jack worked for the East India Trading company under Beckett when he was asked to sail an outdated ship. The deal was that the ship would be sold to jack for one shilling after he had delivered the cargo. This cargo was 100 human slaves. During the delivery Jack realized he could not complete it and freed the ...

Yes he died and reached this place known as The World's End located far beyond the Caribbean and Singapore, which is one of the most inaccessible places in the world. It could be found only by using the navigational charts, which were presented to the esteemed navigator Wu Ling for his journeys to the 'afterlife'. These charts would later be given to the ...

Jack's comment is about the fact that his father has lived to be an "Old Pirate" you will notice several times through the series that pirates don't generally live long enough to enjoy the fruits of their ill-gotten gains, which Captain Teague has done. Captain Teague's comment is a bit more cryptic. He is revealing a crack in his swagger here. He admits ...

They are standing next to Kraken's carcass and facing the growing threat from East India Trading Company. There is also the first part of that conversation: Barbossa: Still thinking of running, Jack? Think you can outrun the World? You know, the problem with being the last of anything... ...by and by, there be none left at all. [...] Jack: ...

According to this page he was 40 when he died by the kraken: Jack Sparrow (Born 1700, Events of Part 2 was at 1740) According to this timeline the saving of Elizabeth and his death happend in the same year, so he was 39 or 40. Johnny Depp was 40 when playing in the first part of the movies, so I guess they estimated Sparrow's age by Johnny's age.

I don't know why Lord Beckett didn't give out the order's but he's realized that there was nothing he could do about it. The chapter number is 25 "Good Business". Lord Beckett was trying to kill Jack Sparrow but it turns out Lord Beckett was wrong. I've seen this movie a million times (more than a million) and I still don't get why Lord Beckett didn't give ...

This kind of behavior has been shown on screen a few other times also. When a captain realizes that his death is upon him and that there's nothing he can do about it, they tend to shut down and forget about anything else. A couple of other examples off the top of my head: The Fifth Element (at the beginning, when a captain tries firing missiles at the source ...

It's because of the way he died. At the very least, it is used in the story "just because" in order to remind us of the way he died. Pintel: So, what Barbossa did is, he tied a cannon to Bootstrap's bootstraps. Ragetti: [snickering quietly] Bootstrap's bootstraps... Pintel: And the last we saw of ol' Bill Turner, he was sinkin' into the crushing ...
