OK, the general concensus about this film seems to be disappointment, and I can understand why. The first Pirates film was a breath of fresh air, combining a great storyline, brilliant one-liners and outstanding special effects. Having watched it several times on DVD I was really excited about the sequel.
My initial reaction when leaving the cinema was...could have been better. The main failing was the relatively slow-moving storyline, the way certain characters were shoe-horned in and... (read more)

Firstly, I must say that I loved the first film so this film had very high standards to live up to for me.
I rented this film from a movie rental place (blockbuster) a couple of months ago and thought it was rubbish.
I think that it is a shameless money making venture because no genuine plot was offered up, just a lot of swash-buckling.
You got more drunken antics from capt. Jack Sparrow (which is not funny anymore), more walking around in mens clothes from Keira Knightly to show that she... (read more)

Its nothing special, it's nothing compared to the first one. In fact, it gets pretty stupid in parts and the end is just really really poor. I would save your money and watch The Departed instead or skip along to the cinema and watch Blood Diamond. (read more)

OK, so there I was Christmas morning with a copy of PotC:DMC in my chocolate-covered mitts. I strolled over to the DVD player to slip it in because:-
a) I was excited about seeing it, because the first movie was so good.
b) I had nothing else left to open barring socks.
However my excitement was short-lived, mainly due to the wife mentioning something about 'Christmas dinner' 'The kids' and not enough time.
So 12 hours later, after much toil, I finally managed to plonk the wife down in a... (read more)

I went to see Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest because I loved the first one. What a disappointment. The plot was just plain stupid. If you loved the first one, go and see it, because there will be a third, and you'll need to see it to follow the story. Just don't have your expectations too high. (read more)

My husband and I had a little disagreement about this second Pirates film. I thought it was not as good as the first, he thought it was better. Therefore you will have to make up your own mind! This is a must for anyone who has watched The Curse of the Black Pearl and enjoyed it. The plot is a little more difficult to follow but is still very good. The ending leaves you wondering...........
Have to wait till the third one comes out in the springtime now!
Great film. Worth adding to your... (read more)

Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom are fantastic in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, and they are the dare devils of the sea once again. Pirates Of The Caribbean is in two parts, concluding in part 3, which is out next summer.
Dead Man's Chest offers action from the very first scene. It is on for two and a half hours, but as the film it is very good, and it doesn't feel that long at all. I can't wait for the next part. I don't think it is as good as the original, but it is still a... (read more)

If you watch intensely, and don't miss any of it, it is a brilliant film. Miss more than 10 minutes of it and you'll be lost. (read more)

Overall if you what a film to see this summer, forget about Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Go for a trusty animation, like Cars or Over The Hedge (read more)

I can't say whether the decision to film Pirates Of The Caribbean episodes 2 and 3 back to back is going to turn out to a good one. I have to admit that I left the cinema feeling slightly disappointed in the abrupt ending of Dead Man's Chest. However, on reflection, it is a totally different kettle of fish to the first POTC film. It is certainly a lot darker with respect to Captain Jack's character as he shows his more selfish pirate side. Elizabeth Swan also appears to have had a... (read more)
