Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

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).

Saw pirates of the caribbean last month or so, and have continued to see woman with dread locks. What should i do?

Johnny Depp was his usual charming self and the only one with any decent lines. The special effects were imaginative and solidly executed. Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley had terrible lines and not enough charisma to carry off the roles. I mildly enjoyed it as a great pirate fan, but would only recommend it for a younger viewing crowd or a real blockbuster fan.

The first one was interesting..but this one was just too much...
the only good thing about this movie are the visual effects...this movie is only for people that like fantasy movies...

What a waste of Bill Nighy. Wasnt as good as its trailer. Too long and generally repetitive. Depp was good and had some great lines but by and large it was forgettable.

    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... Full Review

  • 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.. Full Review

  • 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... Full Review

  • 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... Full Review

  • [The filmmakers] aggressively contrive to wow its audience and give them more of everything: the seafaring spectacle, the black humour, the Errol Flynn-esque swashbuckling, all pitched at a larger scale. But in doing so, they've sacrificed some quality control, causing the novelty to wane considerably... Full Review
