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.

forgetable funBy Mattbenfletch (13 reviews) from Chorley , 08 Mar 2009Does exactly as the first film although the narrative is very confusing at times. Seems silly that all the first film characters are shoe horned into the film. It is fun but not very memorable.
