Product Description

Amazon.ca

Take the first Pirates of the Caribbean film, add a dash of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and a lot more rum. Shake well and you'll have something resembling Dead Man's Chest, a bombastic sequel that's enjoyable as long as you don't think too hard about it. The film opens with the interrupted wedding of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), both of whom are arrested for aiding in the escape of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) in the first film. Their freedom can only be obtained by getting Captain Jack's compass, which is linked to a key that's linked to a chest belonging to Davy Jones, an undead pirate with a tentacle face and in possession of a lot of people's souls. If you're already confused, don't worry--plot is definitely not the strong suit of the franchise, as the film excels during its stunt pieces, which are impressively extravagant (in particular a three-way swordfight atop a mill wheel). It may help to know that Dead Man's Chest was filmed simultaneously with some of Pirates 3, so don't expect a complete resolution (think more The Empire Strikes Back) or the movie will feel a lot longer than it really is.

Bloom shows a tad bit more brawn this time around, but he's still every bit as pretty as the tomboyish Knightley. (Seriously, sometimes you think they could swap roles.) Bill Nighy (Love, Actually) weighs in as Davy Jones and Stellan Skarsgård appears as Will's undead father. But the film still belongs wholly to Depp, who in a reprise of his Oscar-nominated role gets all the belly laughs with a single widened eyeliner-ed gaze. He still runs like a cartoon hen and slurs like Keith Richards--and he's still one of the most fascinating movie characters in recent history. --Ellen A. Kim

Product Description

Charming rogue pirate Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is back for a grand, swashbuckling, nonstop joyride filled with devilish pirate humor, monstrous sea creatures, and breathtaking black magic. Now Jack's got a blood debt to pay -- he owes his soul to the legendary Davy Jones, ghostly Ruler of the Ocean Depths . . . but ever-crafty Jack isn't about to go down without a fight. Along the way, dashing Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and the beautiful Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) get caught up in the thrilling whirlpool of misadventures stirred up in Jack's quest to avoid eternal damnation by seizing the fabled Dead Man's Chest!

4.0 out of 5 stars [3.5]--Dead Man's Chest is a good film June 27 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Dead Man's Chest is definitely not a bad film, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed a little. It's always tough to create sequels to successful blockbusters and have them live up to originals name. The first "Pirates" film had a rare charm that most other Hollywood pictures would envy. Fantastic characters, a great story, amazing special effects, and an all-around "fun" feel. It's not hard to understand why it became so popular. On paper, nothing really seems wrong with Dead Man's Chest. It has the same elements that made the first film a hit. Yet at the same time, something was missing.

Two of the "main three" characters (Sparrow, Turner, and Swann) seemed to have experienced a personality makeover. Initially, all three characters are likable and you found yourself rooting for them through both good and bad intentions. That's not the case in DMC. A great amount of the storyline felt like filler, as if they were just there to set up the next action scene. This formula works for B-movies and martial arts films, but for a big budget film like this, it feels awkward. The humor is hit-and-miss. It's impossible not to smile Johnny Depp's performance, even at his most outrageous moments. However, it often feels that the writers tried too hard to squeeze in humor at inappropriate places just so they can meet their humor quota. This sort of bad timing is another element that sets it below the "Curse of the Black Peal" in terms of quality.

Davy Jones and "Bootstrap" Bill Turner are two terrific additions to the "Pirates" cast. They both add to a very dark atmosphere that the overall story focuses on. While far-fetched at times, the action/sword-fight scenes are a ton of fun to watch and help make it an all-around solid film.

4.0 out of 5 stars less hype,much better movie than the first one Nov. 8 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
i must say,i quite enjoyed this movie,i think mostly because my
expectations were very low.this is due to the fact that i was
disappointed in the first installment,because my expectations were too
high.how ironic.this entry had more action,better action sequences and
more humour.it was at times also darker than the original and the
acting had more depth.there were also more characters and various sub
plots,but the movie was still easy to follow.the one thing that
irritated me at first was that they made captain Jack Sparrow's
character even more effeminate than they did in the first one Johnny
Depp does somehow pull it off,though,give him credit for that.so this
was only a temporary annoyance and then the character's quirks,or
foibles,if you will,grew on me.i don't perceive being annoyed by this
in the next installment.this movie also had some more suspense and the
action sequences were at times very intense,in a good way.there was an
abundance of CGI in this movie,which was exceptionally well done,the
best i have seen in a long time,possibly ever.the filmmakers did a
great job of balancing humour suspense,action and some darker material
together.the story also had more depth and i cared more for the
characters this time around.i think most of the characters were better
written,for whatever reason.the only minor complaint i have is that the
movie was a bit too long.i did however like the ending.nothing
fancy,just a low key setup for the third installment.basically,this is
a case of the sequel surpassing the original in every way.i haven't yet
seen the third entry,though i have higher hopes(but i've heard mixed
reviews)and it has a lot to live up to.for me,this second installment
in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga is a 4/5

2.0 out of 5 stars Much worse than I expected. Sept. 3 2007
Format:DVD
I'd seen the awful reviews and been warned that it was nowhere near as good as the first film. Bearing this in mind I often find that going into a film with low expectations can lead to being pleasantly surprised.

It seemed to start reasonably well and although, most of the time, it felt like it was just plodding along, filling in time 'till the next film, it at least gave the impression it might be building towards something interesting. Unfortunately the film then descended into a series of the most tediously unexciting CGI/stunt set pieces I've yet to see come out of Hollywood. None of the characters(including Jack Sparrow) retained any of the charm or chemistry they had in the previous picture and you find it impossible to care about what happens to them.

It never ceases to amaze me, when you consider the sums involved, surely by diverting a bit more into the script writing...
It's all so short-sighted since all those people who feel cheated this time will be less likely to trust the hype for the 'next big thing'.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this film is they've finally given us the movie that everyone predicted the first one would be.
As an exercise in accountancy and marketing this is a winner but as entertainment it falls very flat indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The chest of the dead man awaits you... May 26 2007
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The sequel for Pirates of the carrabean was long awaited after the succes of The Black Pearl and the wait was well worth as the second movie of what is to become a trilogy is better than the original.More action,humour,this movie is great in each point but my only complaint is that its way too long at 2:30 minutes but its a fantastic movie that you have to see.

The movie again features the characters of Jack Sparrow,Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner.The movie is complex enough,especially if you haven`t seen the first movie of the serie.Pirates Of The Carrabean was actually based on a theme park ride but its hard to beleve.This time the ennemy is Davy Jones who is the captain of the flying dutchmen and his heart is into the most wanted "Dead Man`s Chest",he has a sea creature they call `The Krakken`wich is a sort of giant octopus(reminescent of Star Wars`s Sarlaac)and Will meets someone he tought he would never see(and no,its not elizabeth),i won`t say anymore for those who haven`t seen the movie...

Lots of action,like the 3 man fight,chases,monsters the movie may be long but its full of suspense.A bit two long but again a good movie they shot Pirates of the cabbean 2 and 3 at the same time but it clearly doesn`t affect the movie in any bad ways.Any way you put it you got a winner here,a great movie and after you see it you already want to see the third one!

Overral a must see for everyone definatly a must-have!A movie worth seing over and over again,much like the trilogy of Pirates Of The Carabbian,its exciting,diverse,shocking and entertaining at best.
