The ship, The Black Pearl, was built in Bayou La Batre, Alabama, at Steiner Shipyard, just a couple of blocks from Bayou La Batre City Hall. See more »
When Jack is running from the natives, in the first close up shot you see a rope tied around Jack waist. After the next shot of him running to the ship you do not see it any more and he had no time to take it off. See more »
I just came out of the movie 30 minutes ago (as it was released a day before America over here).
The movie is visually stunning - the CGI is top rate and you won't spend the whole film groaning about how fake things appear on the screen.
Acting was brilliant. Johnny Depp once again proves why he's the only man alive who can play the role of Cap. Jack Sparrow. There's a great number of returning characters from the first film - including a couple I was very happy to see again.
My only fault was perhaps that this film lack a certain 'heart' that the first film had, which I believe came because the first film was something very different, which of course this film couldn't contend with.
That aside, you will hardly notice it. There's a good plot, wonderful sets, great acting and plenty of laughs. One of the best films I've seen all year thus far - can't wait for the 3rd one!
