Kept putting off watching this this cause octopus-guy was disgusting...It was a decent sequel but still not as good as the first one. Also, the story felt like it was dragging half-way through the movie.

A fun, entertaining adventure that unfortunately is bogged down by a hefty runtime, familiar territory, and most of all the comprise of Captain Jack himself, but still retains the thrills of the first.

Entertaining battle scene and ending scene, yet the rest of it was not really helpful to hold my attention.

Watching this film back-to-back with the first one, I realized that "Dead Man's Chest" is a better and more entertaining film than the original. It is visually spectacular and exciting from start to finish, and although it is just as convoluted and contrived and overly long as the first film, I have to say I was consistently engaged in the story. While the first film took forever for us audiences to learn where it was heading, this film hits the ground running. Johnny Depp is the best part of this film (and the franchise, really), but I also enjoyed Bill Nighy as Davy Jones and Tom Hollander (very underrated) as Cutler Beckett. It's really good fun.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is not as fresh as its predecessor, but it brings the humor and action, and introduces a great new villain.

What you have in 'dead man's chest' is a two and a half hour set up for a supposed finale. What happens to be the curse of most trilogies does hit pretty hard here, in that the story cannot tie up any loose ends whatsoever. Instead merely give you more to mull over.

What was once a pain in the arse with the original cinematic release is taken away for the more modern blu ray viewer, so the pretty poor cliff hanger element is removed from the equation, and what you are left with is a very silly romp through pirate land, where very little has changed for good or for worse.

It's business as usual as far as the main crew are concerned, with Geoffrey Rush out of the picture, we make way for a new villain in the brilliant Davy Jones, played in motion capture form by Bill Nighy. The animation is of an incredibly impressive standard here, with loads of tiny details on his aquatic frame, the same can't be said however for the rest of the crew of the Flying Dutchman, the Kraken or in the ludicrous fight scenes.

If you lopped anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes off of Dead Man's chest's run time you would have a vastly superior film for it, instead you have an enjoyable romp and it is nice to see the same characters again, but it comes off feeling bloated and with little progression.

And a cliffhanger has never been, and shall never be worthy end to a film.

A more horror-esque take on the franchise that works surprisingly well despite an indulgent run time and utterly pointless opening thirty minutes.
Grade: C+

Didn't hate it as much on the second viewing but the terrible script and story seriously hinders Depp's performance and mistreats what could have been a great villain in Davy Jones. Bloom & Knightley shouldn't have been in the sequels.

"Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" stuggles to climb out that blockbuster pit, with nothing really that interesting to offer but old tales you've heard a million times before.
March 14, 2017
Extremely entertaining and in sometimes more entertaining than the 1st movie, however the movie lacks the excellent way of storytelling
March 8, 2017
Grade - B
Whilst it does in many ways improve upon the original, with advanced CGI, a more interesting antagonist, and some jaw-dropping action sequences, 'Dead Man's Chest' unfortunately doesn't support as strong a script to accompany them.

I liked this movie far better than the original because of it's interesting plot with lots of surprises and amazing action scenes. Wished the other films had the same quality.

Jack Sparrow is cool but this movie is clumsily strange - bit dissappointing but a great series

Jack sparrow is back. To fight the creepy deadly Davy Jones Davy Jones is cool but look some very disgusting and creepy. The sequels keep getting better I know this one was my favorite. I like the Cracken that Davy Jones sends out it was very creepy it is like a gigantic octopus that is Davy Jones's pet now Davy Jones was playing his Oregon with his tentacles. That was creepy But this is a movie you should watch! It was a good movie! Will Jack pay his debt? To Jones see for your self.

Pretty entertaining, not quite as good as the first.

Me surpreendeu demais, pois pela fama do filme achei que seria superdivertido, mas achei chato, arrastado, repetitivo em várias cenas, além de confuso demais. Só o charme do elenco e o capricho no design de produção salvam.

4.5/5. This may be an unpopular opinion, but I don't care. This is my favorite of the Pirates movies. A lot of fun and some great action with some hilarious moments.
