Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) returns to the screen for another round of supernatural adventures on the high seas in this spirited sequel to the 2003 Disney hit, which re-teams original director Gore Verbinski with original screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. As Will (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) prepare to exchange vows at the altar, their wedding plans hit rough waters with the arrival of sea-bound scallywag Jack Sparrow. It seems that Sparrow owes a substantial blood debt to half-octopus sea captain Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), and that the only way for the flamboyant sea rover to elude the wrath of his otherworldly pursuer is to seek the aid of mysterious and powerful voodoo priestess Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris), whose ability to resurrect the dead and gaze into the future may provide just the advantage needed to avoid a waterlogged fate in the locker of his legendary nemesis. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I liked this movie, and I own it, but I definitely thought it fell short of its predecessor. Johnny Depp is just as hilarious, however, if not funnier. Davy Jones and his crew kinda gave me the creeps and it was hard to look at them once in awhile... Definitely worth a watch and a must-have if you're a JD fan.
The grand continuation of the epic Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. With the legendary ending of the Curse of the Black Pearl and the loss of Geoffrey Rush as a lead role I was concerned about the future of Pirates of the Caribbean, but the trilogy loses no steam as it brings Bill Nighy on board as the villainous Davy Jones. If Pirates of the caribbean was a sandwich, the best sandwich ever created, Dead Man's Chest is the delicious meat between two slices of flawless bread.
