Facing the "locker" Jack must find the heart of Davy Jones but to save himself he must get the help of quick-witted Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan. If that's not complicated enough, Will and Elizabeth are sentenced to hang, unless will can get Lord Cutler Beckett Jack's compass, Will is forced to join another crazy adventure with Jack.

The pirate musical "band" that was playing in the inn at Tortuga are also from the ride. Notice the one playing the accordion. See more »
The first time that Will is fighting the Kracken, he jumps to a sail, stabs his sword in it, and slowly goes down the sail. In one shot the material that makes up the sail is sewn together sideways, as is factually correct for how sails were made at the time, but when he goes down the sail the material is put together up and down so that his sword does not snag on the seams.

When watching pirates 2 for the first time, you start to wonder what was going through director Gore Verbinski's mind. Pirates 2 shows a very different side to piracy than that of 'the curse of the black pearl'.
Disloyalty, greed and lying are the basic themes of piracy, but this has shown more in the second film than the first. Mr Verbinski has definitely shown a new side to piracy, making it not as 'sugar coated' as the first movie.
But overall, at the end you are still hanging of the end of your set as expected. Well done to all those involved. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead man's chest was tops!!!!
