Did I Leave the Gas On?By R3DZ3D (9 reviews) from Farnham , 13 Jul 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I thoroughly enjoyed the first 'Pirates' film, but 'Pirates 2' leaves you with a faint suspicion that maybe you should have got more out of it.
Whilst it could never be accused of failing to deliver one spectacular action sequence after another, what it sadly lacks is continuity. You are rushed from one death defying and in many cases nigh on impossible stunt to the next, whilst dropping in a tasty character development to keep you wanting more.
At well over 2 hours long it still feels rushed, as if they need to fit in as much as possible. In this sense, it is very like other "second in the trilogy" films, and ends with a suitable cliff hanger to keep you salivating till next summer.
Despite the bumpy ride it ticks all the boxes for fantastic set pieces, beautiful scenery and swashbuckling action. Johnny Depp is as over the top as ever, (and brilliantly so), and Bill Nighy provides a very suitable counterpart in tentacle faced Davy Jones, complete with his crew of aquatic monstrosities.
The script contains some genuinely funny moments, and plenty of intriguing references to make you want to watch the original again. All in all, a good way to pass an evening, but dont go expecting any dramatic changes from the original.

Hide The Rum!!By JustAFanTC (121 reviews) from Leeds , 27 May 2009I loved these films when they came out, even though after a few viewings, the holes in the plots began to widen BUT on watching these on the Blue-ray ersions, I actually really enjoyed the pirate romp this time round. The High Definition really does make a difference and at this point I was suprised to discover things I hadn't seen in the film before.

pirates of the caribbeanBy bevlang (8 reviews) from Sheffield , 10 May 2009it was a good film to see
An easy 5 stars!By MickeyMouse3000 (299 reviews) from Dorset, England , 10 May 2009This is what movies are all about. It just doesn't get better than this in my opinion. Fantastic characters, imaginative and brilliant action and hilarious moments of feelgood comedy. I love watching the Pirates movies, they are a joy from start to finish and thankfully Dead Man's Chest is as good as the first one (better in some respects). The big action scenes with the dreaded Kraken are classic.
PotC: 2By a customer from Cheshire, UK , 06 May 2009Pretty bad follow up to the first. This is the stop-gap between 1 & 3 and was basically a bit haphazard and just seemed a jollies run for the crew.
