Davey Jones' bank balance
John from Donegal, 01 Sep 2007
I felt like I'd started this film half way through, and can only think that tonnes of scenes ended up in the recycle bin. Johnny Depp was good, Keira Knightly was OK, the rest of the cast where taking the money and running. The plot is all over the place, stacks of money was spent on the special effects. Don't try to watch while eating dinner as the monsters are really icky. It was all a bit too up itself, lots of 'in' jokes and no attention to a proper story except setting up for a sequel.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest
Denise from Cork, 16 Dec 2007
The second action packed installment to the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Depp lights up the screen as the bumbling Capt. Jack Sparrow backed by his (sometimes loyal) crew and Bloom and Knightly, he embarks on a quest to find the chest containing Davey Jones' heart in order to avoid fulfilling an agreement made with Davey Jones himself.
One not to be missed ...
more of the same

2 things - if you've not seen the first see it first - if you didn't like it don't see this - great stuff - rock star pirates, Depp even more self indulgently excentric and not so creepy ghost tales. Great stuff really - loved it - butoh does the ending leave you wanting more
part one of two
Deirdre from Dublin, 13 Jul 2007
Although the second movie in the trilogy it's really a first part of two. The first film stands on it's own but this one is the start of two, it might be a better movie to see as a series rather than alone. Still a fun romp.
Pirates of the Carribean - Dead Mans Chest
Rachel from Dublin, 26 Jun 2007
We loved the first one, but this one just wasn't quite as good. Johnny Depp is brilliant (as always!!), but i wasn't blown away - which is unusual for me with any Johnny Depp movie! It is worth a look though!
