  The best pirates out of the series yet!!

| | See all SeanyBoy1991's reviews (8)

This is probably my favorite film of all time it is the best out of the 3, The movie has fantastic cinematography and great music.
Pirates 2 develops the characters brilliantly and has a stunning and which will defiantly make you want to see the 3rd edition.
There are great performances by Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom. They all make the characters there own and all deserve the roles!! No matter what anyone says!!
Naomie Harris has the best character but doesn't really come a special part of the movie until pirates 3.
Gore Verbinski did a great job!!
This is a great gift for Christmas and is worth every penny of your money! And will defiantly not disappoint.

The first movie was a classic, it's a real shame I can't say the same for the second chapter. This film was shot back to back with part three of the trilogy. And both this and the third chapter suffer from a messy script, and is a perfect example of a studio getting greedy and starting filming before the script is even completed, so it can be in the cinema for the following summer. Also the film is way too long , a could have had better editing. But saying this Depp is again brilliant and saves this film.also the computer generated Davie Jones is breath taking. The action is still good and again Hanz Zimmer music score is excellent. Not forgetting the Giant Kracon attacking the ship has to be mentioned for a brilliant show stopping moment. The film leaves you longing for part three Just to tie up the loose ends of the confusing script. This is still a very good film, and needs you to see the third chapter to appreciate it more.

  Much worse than I expected.

I'd seen the awful reviews and been warned that it was nowhere near as good as the first film. Bearing this in mind I often find that going into a film with low expectations can lead to being pleasantly surprised.

It seemed to start reasonably well and although, most of the time, it felt like it was just plodding along, filling in time 'till the next film, it at least gave the impression it might be building towards something interesting. Unfortunately the film then descended into a series of the most tediously unexciting CGI/stunt set pieces I've yet to see come out of Hollywood. None of the characters(including Jack Sparrow) retained any of the charm or chemistry they had in the previous picture and you find it impossible to care about what happens to them.

It never ceases to amaze me, when you consider the sums involved, surely by diverting a bit more into the script writing...
It's all so short-sighted since all those people who feel cheated this time will be less likely to trust the hype for the 'next big thing'.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this film is they've finally given us the movie that everyone predicted the first one would be.
As an exercise in accountancy and marketing this is a winner but as entertainment it falls very flat indeed.

  If only the plot had been thought through!

Pirates 2 is a mixed bag. Its not a touch on the flawless original but it still has alot of things in it to make it worth watching.
Depp is once again fantastic, Bill Nighy's Davie Jones is an interesting character and Kiera Knightly continues to fit the damsel in distress role brilliantly. Its Orlando Bloom that lets the film down, he can't act and lets down the films otherwise fantastic acting talent.
The action scenes come thick and fast, the next bigger and longer than the last. But sadly the focus on action means that the film fails to do the things that the first film so good.
With the exception of the extended scene on the Cannibal island there are not amny great fun moments and the plot is as twisted and pointless as Orlando Blooms presence!
Fans will be dissapointed, but give this film a go anyway, Depp's performance is reason enough for a viewing.

  Brilliant

A great sequel in my opinion, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Depp is fantastic in his role as is Bill Nighy in his.
However as good as this film is I wouldn't recommend you watch it if you haven't already seen the first film.

  great
