PotC. Like most movies by Disney, it didn't live up to the charm of the original. With old charachters disappearing, and new charachters appearing with only half-assed explanations.

Other then that, Davey Jones was kickass, Kiera Knightly looks hot dressed up as a pirate, and Johnny Depp was... good.

For the ending... reminded me of Halo 2's ending.

Saw this with some friends, I remembered having FUN watching the first one but other than that the first one was completely forgettable to me. So I didn't know what the fuck was going on in the second one anytime they referenced stuff in the first.

This movie was a total snooze, The only part I liked was the section about the tribe that wants to cook and eat Captain Jack. The rest of it just gave me a headache. I really just can't stand watching movies like this.

Yeah this movie was way too fucking long to end on a cliffhanger. And that whole "ooo ooo whos got the heart/key/chest" fight was gay, although the wheel thing was fantastic.

I liked it, but it was a little long. My only complaint was that Davey Jone's accent was fucking awful. Other than that, i spent the whole movie fantasizing about having sex with kiera knightley in a pirate outfit. Also, the fight scenes were very clever and the special effects were way excellent.

i thought the first movie was pretty boring and jonny depp just annoyed the hell out of me. i thought the 2nd was more or less the same and like jixby i didnt get the references to the first one because it was so forgettable.

I thought it was great. Then again, I loved the first one, too, so I guess it's only natural to love this one. The visuals were great, as was the soundtrack. The story was entertaining, the characters were well done, and in general, I can only think of one complaint. The Cannibal Island dragged on WAY too long.

Since my sister was living on the island where they were shooting it, she lined up to be an extra but was told that she wasn't ugly enough. And my sister's really ugly, so it must be some movie!

i liked the cragen, davey jones and keira knightley

They tried to make Jack Sparrow too funny in this one and random characters came out of nowhere. Also I know the guy who played the hammerhead shark pirate man

I saw this today. The PotC soon-to-be trilogy continues to amaze me. I loved this movie so much. Maybe I like pirates too much, I dunno. What I found odd, though, was that, even though it's pirates, that an eyeball was plucked out of a dead body by a bird. I found the ending satisfying, though if you didn't know there'd be a 3rd, you'd no doubt be confused. I wanna see Keith Richards as a pirate baaaad.

The awful part was that Davy Jones souned like James Woods at times.

Didn't they say that Keith Richards was going to be in the second movie, at first?

They were touring during the shooting of the second movie, but I'm pretty sure he's making an appearance in the third.

Well, he kind of has to. I mean, he's to play Jack Sparrow's father in the third.

I was surprised that it didn't go straight to DVD, with half of the actors from the original
