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.
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.

When Elizabeth tries to head for the gun in order to shoot the gun powder (and rum) barrels she tries to climb some stairs (right before Jack takes up the gun). Suddenly, the ship is hit so hard that Elizabeth falls down. The gun, however, does not move at all. See more »
What a dismal sequel, it seemed to have been made to cash in on the first and at the same time make way for a third. The term cash-cow comes to mind. This movie is just too long and uninteresting. Davey Jones and his crew are just a mess of special effects more distracting than entertaining. Compared to the first film, Dead Man's Chest was a big disappointment. I loved the first film and the special effects with the crew being dead made the SF believable but the Davey Jones character made the whole thing a joke. I have the 1st film on DVD, it is a very good film, but for me that is where it all ends. I did watch the third one to see if they had recaptured the magic of the first one but it was even more dire than the 2nd. Johnny Depp created one of cinemas great characters in Jack Sparrow and it is a shame that they didn't make sequels more along the lines of his humour with some good old swashbuckling thrown in.
