The first was a great movie but this one non-stop action, funny and very entertaining almost better than the last.
A great sequel, that matches the first movie. To me, a must see, if you enjoyed the first one!
on the topic of pirates, it works almost as well as the first movie. probably a 7 or 6 out of 10, but Davy Jones as a villain is a 9. they could've cut some subplots of the film and nothing would really change or it would change but for the better in regards to the story. and depp actually came back for this and didn't phone it in like the most recent film
The Curse of the Black Pearl is and always will be the standout film in this franchise, but the sequels are all fantastic in their own rights.
the best "pirates of the caribbean" movie yet! even better plot and better characters!
Loved it! Fantastic visual effects, great story (if not a bit murky at times), and Davy Jones has got to be in my top 20 favorite fictional villains of all time.
Despite common opinion, this is by far the strongest movie of the pirates franchise. It provides a non-stop combination of fantastic action, endlessly entertaining characters and a terrifying, Lovecraftian atmosphere.
Johnny Depp Returns as Jack Sparrow and is somehow presented with even Whittier dialogue that is perfectly reciprocated by a cast of suitably confused supporting characters.
Davy Jones is an absolutely fantastic villain in both design and execution. The Lovecraft influences are clear and welcomed, and his mere inclusion expands the series ongoing mythology. Equally terrifying are the cursed crewmembers, whose nightmarish appearances push the boundaries of what can be shown in a PG-13 movie, and that's great.
The action sequences are unparalleled within the franchise, from the island escape to the three-way battle to the climactic kraken attack that marks a landmark in monster screen adaptation.
The darkly nautical atmosphere is bolstered by one of the greatest soundtracks of all time, courtesy of the ever-amazing Hans Zimmer.
Some complain of a bloated runtime with too many characters and plot threads. However, the expanded runtime is ideal for exploring a greater number of character details and subplots. It certainly is confusing at times for the standard viewer, a greater level of concentration and a few re-watches are advised for the greatest experience with this film.
I cannot rate this movie highly enough, one of my all-time favorites and the perfect edition to the pirates franchise. Who could have thought that so much could come from a theme park ride.
the best of the franchise!!!
A bit too much of violence
It has its moments that work, but its not as good as the original
