Uneven. [Full review in Spanish]

Trips over its own feet in its quest to be bigger and better than its predecessor.

A messy film can be just as boring as one where nothing happens and that is the case here.
March 14, 2018
The result is an overproduced movie that tries so strenuously hard to be "fun" that it's a chore to sit through. For all its razzle-dazzle production values, the story itself feels cluttered, hard to follow and hard to care about
August 30, 2009
The kind of sensory bombardment that replicates less a Disney theme-park ride than an extended stay at a Guantánamo base cell
April 29, 2009
Feels like two movies: one good, one pretty pointless, neither of which is worth the hype.
April 23, 2009
Overblown to the point of monotony, the second installment in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise is a prime example of too much money and not enough story.
August 7, 2008
It's a pretty joyless ride, even with all the CGI wizardry a quarter of a billion bucks can buy.

[This sequel] takes what worked the first time and redoes it only bigger and louder - in the process losing all the charm that made the first film so much fun.
February 28, 2008
This movie is the very definition of water torture.
July 14, 2007
As you'd expect from a sequel, everything that made the original interesting is amplified to within an inch of its life.
December 3, 2006
Just because you can do something does not mean you have to. Long and noisy is not enough.
November 11, 2006
Two and a half hours of cinematic slog.
September 17, 2006
An empty vessel... bloated beyond all recognition, and [evidencing] absolutely no flow or consistency -- there's nary a human heartbeat here in its two-and-a-half-hour-plus running time.
August 21, 2006
Dead Man on arrival.
July 28, 2006
I'd give a much stronger recommendation for going back and watching "Curse of the Black Pearl" again.
July 25, 2006
A complete let down after an amazing predecessor.
July 21, 2006
Bereft of both joy and humor, it's dark and dank with unappealing cinematography and sets.
July 19, 2006
Pirates 2 is everything we prayed to God it wouldn't be: dull, humorless, long, languid, effects-driven, boorish, and yawn-inducing. Other than that it's excellent!
