Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Being the best thing about P Of The C by a nautical mile, Depp’s Cap’n Jack Sparrow takes the lead in this eagerly awaited sequel that’s bound to be one the year’s big bangs. It’s all done by the same cast & same filmmakers, who are making this and a 3rd installment back to back.

Jack is owing a debt – his soul – to the legendary Davey Jones, Cap’n of the ghostly Flying Dutchman. He’s gotta find a crafty way out or face the fiery pits of hell, eternal damnation that is. Jack’s problems affect also the wedding plans of Elizabeth (Knightley) and Will (Bloom).

Lively is an odd word for something called Dead Man's Chest, but lively it is. You won't find hotter action, wilder thrills or loopier laughs this summer...

This one is a merry-go-round - or a runaway water wheel - leaving one dazed by spinning too fast for too long without really going anywhere...

Depp is the comic gel that holds the whole enterprise together. The performance is a total delight that somehow combines Bugs Bunny, Peter Pan and Charlie Chaplin...

Too long, and too wrapped up in its various plot contrivances to notice it?s veering off course. But Jack just about pulls the wheel back, aided by Verbinski?s flair for cartoonish comedy action..

The problem here is too much money and not enough wit. The script's not so much a story as a tin of sardines, cramming every barnacle-crusted cliché from the pirate lexicon into a single box: giant sea monster, voodoo princess, desert island, angry cannibals, black spot, peg leg, buried treasure, ghost ship... it's exhausting when it should be thrilling...
