The DVD cover does NOT mention all audio and subtitles available. Caused me grief, before I actually tried viewing. (Play's info seems correct, thank goodness!)

  so what's become of my ship

The first movie was excellent but this is not near that one in terms of humor and plot. The plot to this one is too overcomplicated. The characters are all over the place. There is too much going on at once. Jack sparrow is given much more airtime than in the first and he is excellently played by depp. Sparrow is the only one that is funny. Davy jones is really good. He is portrayed very darkly by the excellent bill nighy. The movie us also twenty minutes too long and a lot could have ended up on the editing room floor. Could have been so much better

Whilst this is not quite as good as the first it still is an excellent movie. This time Jack, Will and Elizabeth come across the tyranous Davie Jones to whom Jack owes a great debt. The action scenes are quite good and the humour is awesome as per usual in what made a grade A summer blockbuster. Enjoy

  Great sequel, not as good as the first one

Dead Man's Chest is the second film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series, this is also basiclly the start of the second story in the Pirates Of The Caribbean universe.

I personally thought it was a great film and as sequel goes, it wasn't a bad one. It basiclly starts the new story so you don't really need to of seen the first one to get it, but the first one is the best out of all 3 so I would recommend it. The first part of the new story basiclly sets the theme for the final film (3rd now as a 4th is confirmed) and gets you into the story by introducting some new characters. When you watch this and the 3rd one it's good, but on it's own, the film is pointless, but as a series it rules, which is why I like it. I felt this was a great sequel and again, is acted well and has some good special effects, just like the first.

Too long, and too wrapped up in its various plot contrivances to notice it'€™s veering off course. But Jack just about pulls the wheel back, aided by Verbinski'€™s flair for cartoonish comedy action.

  Great, but not as good as the first!!

As i hear alot of people say 'the original is always the best' in this case it was. But still i enjoyed it, at least Captain Jack Sparrow was in it.

  Good Follow up to a Great Film

The second film fo the trilogy has a good story line and the already familiar characters are developed, a sequel will always be hard pushed to compete with the success of a film like "Curse of the Black Pearl" however "Dead Man's Chest" matches up very well against its prequel. Dead Man's Chest is definately a sequel and is not really made to be a stand alone film.

This film is a must see movie if you like fantasy movies and are willing to suspend your disbelief. The action scenes wre great, the jokes were funny, Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush stole the show for me in all three movies. Why Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightly were cast is unknown to me. Neither actor is worthy of a role in this, both are too young (as actors ie not enough experience) and too wooden on screen so the only reason they were cast is that they are good looking to help pull in the crowds... but Johnny Depp brings them in! The two actors are just shown up when on screen with Johnny Depp as their lack of experience is obvious especially as he is so good. However I still give this movie 5 stars as everything else is so good it just about makes up for Kiera and Orlando. This movie is a must have for anyone who wanted to be a pirate growing up and is a pleasure to watch.
