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
If you loved the first movie, you may be disappointed with this one. The plot was not nearly as good or exciting, and the sea-creature pirates were a little over the top. Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom were awesome, and I actually liked Kiera Knightley a lot better in this one than the first one (too pouty!). Overall it was entertaining and the effects were pretty good.
This movie reminds me of Matrix: Reloaded. All it is is a set-up for the third movie. It would have been better if they edited this movie down to 30 minutes and stuck on to the begining of the next movie. Johnny Depp played Jack perfectly, but that nothing new.
I was looking forward to part deux but found that the plot line was too loose and not applicable to the first. Johnny Depp was, of course, fabulous as Capt Jack Sparrow, but the movie dragged on a bit in search of a plot. The writers should have taken a clue from George Lucas and planned ahead.
Liked the movie a lot!. But it is not as good as "Curse of the Black Pearl". In my opinion, there was not enough Johnny (Captain Jack) and to much creepy sea creatures. Still very entertaining and can't wait to see the next one!
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.
