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 1h 8 mins) When Norrington introduces himself to Gibbs on Tortuga, he says that his story is 'the same as yours, just one chapter behind'. Later on he is dumped in the pigsty after the fight in the pub. This is the same setting (perhaps even the same pigs) as where Jack Sparrow found Gibbs in the first movie, the previous chapter.

When Will and Jack are looking out on the Flying Dutchman (Will holding a lantern) two people walking behind them are cut in half by the green screen background. In other words, their heads float by on air. See more »
Near the end of the credits, the instrumental music fades out and is replaced by the music from Davy Jones' music box. As the credits come to an end, the music box can be heard winding down, and finally running out just as the credits stop. 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!
