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).

Oh Dear

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.

Just the most amazing make up effects I think I'ver seen in a film. I remember being wowed similarly when seeing the "get ready for a surprise!" scene in Total Recall years back and thinking how remarkable that was. Pirates 2 goes up another level with its clever installation of CGI. On the whole the film was a lot of fun, kind of exhausting and the plot...

Loved how the sea creatures and their ship all blended together to the point that the creatures almost had to move for you to notice them, the only thing in colour was the main characters. I have never been a true Johnny Depp fan until he played Sparrow and Willie Wonka.. go Johnny.. and of course Orlando.

The whole world has gone mad

This film is number one everywhere in the world? How come? It was a hideous film. I would rather have dinner with a dead horse than see this twice.

Not anywhere near as bad as I had been led to believe. The reviews are a bit harsh I think. While the film is a tad long and really doesn't move the story along, it definitely serves it's purpose as the second part of three stories. We are introduced to the new important characters and stories while also finding out what happened to our favourites from...

[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...

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...
