Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest
Short plot summary

Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) owes a debt to Davy Jones (Bill Nighy in an impressive Octopus mask). Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) is charged to be hanged, along with his beau, Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), their only hope of avoiding the charges is to find Jack and get a compass that he wears around his neck. Cartoon type mayhem ensues.

What our panel of critics thought

"This movie is a complete disgrace. Is this what Walt Disney has been reduced to? A permanently drunk pirate slurring all of his words and only about one step away from falling flat on his ass?"

"The stunt with the pole through Sparrow's back /clothing is the best stunt of its type on the big screen ever, and that also includes all stunts ever to be done in the future too..."

"Johnny Depp gets pinged through the air in one of the most exciting stunts ever to be seen on the big screen. A triumph from start to mid-ping to finale, all sprawled on the grass almost skewered but not. It's such a shame that sequence lasts only about a minute."

"This is the first time I have never heard the crunch of a big toe being eaten by an A-List Hollywood celebrity before. A joyous romp."

Please tell me the ending or plot overview if necessary SPOILER

Swann tricks Sparrow and chains him to the sinking ship. He escapes the chains, but the last we see of him he is fighting the monster and the ship sinks. Everyone else escapes.

They finally all agree (including Swann) to go back to find him... movie three in the series out soon...

Dr Bravisimo-Encore II Movie Review

Oh, Johnny Depp, blessed by the Gods of all living thespians. Captain Jack Sparrow, your Clouseau moment of sheer perfect comedyness. Not genius, that term is too over used especially in what is a populist piece of work, but superb nonetheless. Could Jack Sparrow be the comedy creation of the 00's?

Other comments

A slapstick pirate romp.
