USA / Turkish
Jack Sparrow races to recover the heart of Davy Jones to avoid enslaving his soul to Jones' service, as other friends and foes seek the heart for their own agenda as well.
Well, first of all, when I read the review for the movie in my hometown
paper, I was a little scared that Pirates might be a let down. The
trailer and the movie clips, it seemed, didn't really let on that there
was much of a story line -- that it just kind of goes on and on and on,
like the Matrix 2, with no storyline -- just fighting. Plus, most
people do agree: sequels are hardly ever as good as the originals. And
in this case, it's true... Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
isn't the original. But, its an awesome movie in its own right! There
are a few surprises in this movie. A few characters come back from the
first that you wouldn't expect to see in the second. but... um! that's
all I'm saying. This movie is definitely a lot more violent and gory
than the first one. Don't bring the little kids to it. But, trust me --
this is not a Matrix-type movie... There is an actual storyline. And a
good one at that. Capt. Jack Sparrow is back as well as Elizabeth and
Will, who are forced to find him and obtain his compass, or else they
will face the gallows. Well, actually, Will has to find him. Elizabeth
escapes, and yes... as you've seen in the trailers, she does dress up
like a man for this movie. Making it all the more comical. (you'll see
what I mean).
The comedy was superb in this movie. Of course, it wasn't as good as
the first, but you can't expect it to be. Yes, there were a few
instances were they could've shortened the fighting scenes, but it was
very well shot and scripted.
I wish they would've changed a few things about the movie, but you
can't have everything. And don't expect everything to be resolved at
the end. No! There's a cliff-hanger ending that leaves you wanting the
watch the next one the moment the credits start rolling.
If you like the first movie, you'll like the second... And that's all
Jack Sparrow: "Why is the rum *always* gone?" (he stands up and
staggers) "Oh... That's why."
