When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
Once again we're plunged into the world of sword fights and "savvy" pirates. Captain Jack Sparrow is reminded he owes a debt to Davy Jones, who captains the flying Dutchman, a ghostly ship, with a crew from hell. 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.Written by
(at around 47 mins) When the sailors fight over the dress on the ship, on which Elizabeth has stowed away, they talk about the ghost of a woman who was widowed before her wedding. This is similar to a plot point in the Disney ride "The Haunted Mansion" at Walt Disney World. See more »
(at around 1h 30 mins) When Elizabeth is talking to Norrington, her left part of her hair is in the back of her shoulder. In the next shot, it's over her shoulder. See more »
Better than the first, and that's saying something
I will firstly say that after seeing the trailer and previews for this film I had serious doubts. I was afraid that the producers would just try to cash in on the original's success, and forget about any content.
I was pleasantly proved wrong.
This is the most fun I've had in the cinema in the longest time. I can't remember the last time I was so entertained.
Although it is a bit slow at times, and a bit predictable (although fun in it's predictability), it hardly lets up and continuously entertains.
If you loved the original, you will DEFINITELY love this film. The ending not only makes you laugh, it makes you think "What the hell?" and will make you eagerly anticipate (major understatement) the third installment.
There are some great lines, the same fun characters, an inventive and fun story, and some brilliantly staged action sequences.
In summation: SEE IT! See it on the big screen. If you miss it, you will surely regret it.
